Special Note by H. D. Shuemake

* John W. Shoemake was the father of Annice Shoemate.However on his grave stone it reads J.W. Shoemate. However, his name was John W. Shoemate- (According to Annice Shoemake). He was her father, Born on May 7, 1850, Died on April 10, 1916. I had the opportunity to talk with Annice, it was in 1980 or 81, and she told me that John W. was her father.

His children were:
>>>>(1) Thomas *
>>>>(2) William (Bill) *
>>>>(3) Joe *
>>>>(4) Annice Shoemate *

Annice said her three brothers moved to Oklahoma. With them, Her aunt Sarah, also went to Oklahoma. It is reported that she died in a cyclone. She possibly would have been the Sarah living in James Shoemake's household in 1850. Why the move to Oklahoma? It could have been because the U.S. Government had established a reservation for the Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma. This set of Shoemates were listed as Mulatoes. Therefore, it could well be the reason for the move. More on Annice Click here.
