Samuel Shoemake and His Descendants
According to Dusty Williams


My friend Dusty Williams, living in Texas, has spent a great deal of time putting together the descendants of Samuel Shoemake who moved from South Carolina to Bledsoe County, Tennessee and shows up in the 1830 census of Bledsoe County, living in a colored settlement. There is some difference in my report and his, however, I am posting it for anyone interested in tracing their linage back to this Samuel who was a distant relative of mine on my father's side.

Notes for CATHERINE SHUMAKE Collected by H. D. Shuemake:
:

Catherine Shoemake, b. 8 September 1807, who married Zemeriah Card, b. 10 October 1804; the couple owned 5,000 acres of land on top of Walden's Mountain east of Pikeville, just off Highway 30, between Pikeville and Dayton, TN. After her husband died, she is shown with 5,000 acres. Remember Catherine was the daughter of Elizabeth (Betsy) Thomas who was the wife of John Shoemake who died about 1814.

Property previously owned by Zemeriah and Catherine Card

In a court document, dated March 13, 1849, regarding John Thomas' will, a second Catherine, mother of Elizabeth who married John Shoemake, is shown to be his widow.This could be the reason why Elizabeth named her daughter Catherine, she named her after her mother. There was a disagreement over a will that Catherine had made preceding her death that involved John's four daughters, Lydia Gore, Clara Lewis, Elizabeth Shoemake, and Margaret Hood (?). It appeared that Catherine was not following the will made by John Thomas, her husband and the daughters were contesting Catherine's will. Apparently in John's will Catherine was to have the property until her death and then it was to be equally divided among the four daughters. However, Catherine had willed it all to Lydia. Catherine's will was contested and the other daughters were asking that her will be set aside and that the property be divided as set forth in the will of John Thomas. (Ref. Court proceedings of Bledsoe County)

Catherine's father and mother were believed to be John Shoemake and Elizabeth (Betsy) Thomas.

In a record found in a Bible owned by John Thomas, he recorded his tour of duty as a member of the Militia during his 17th, 18th, and 19th year of his age. He stated that he was born in Frederick County, VA., on November 25, 1760. On September 4, 1843, Catherine declares she married John Thomas in March of 1780 and her husband died on January 25, 1843. The marriage was witnessed by Elisha Kirklen and William Brown.
On September 14, 1843 John Thomas (Jr. ?) is clerk and Bird Thomas affirms authenticity of family record and birth of John Thomas His record:
?
>>>>>1. Ellis Thomas was born September 27, 1786
>>>>>2. Abraham was born 1789
>>>>>3. Elizabeth, December 20, 1791
>>>>>4. Margaret, February, 179 ?
>>>>>5. Andrew, Auguat 25, ????
>>>>>6. Lydia, July 25, ????
>>>>>7. Bird, January 19, 1800
>>>>>8. Charley, December, ????
>>>>>9. Catherine Shoemake was born September 8, 1807. *
>>>>>10. Isaac Gore Shoemake was born Tuesday, January 10, 1813.
?
* It is believed that Catherine and Isaac Gore Shoemake were the children of Elizabeth Thomas Shoemake, who was the widow of John Shoemake who died in, or about, 1814 and that they were living with their grandfather John Thomas. If the above record is acurrant, Elizabeth was about 16 years of age when her Catherine was born.
?
* In order to keep things in order, one must remember that Elizabeth Thomas Shoemake had the following children: Catherine Shoemake and Isaac Gore Shoemake. Catherine Shoemake, daughter of Elizabeth, married Zemeriah Card. Card's name was listed on the Federal Census as "Zimri" which was a shortened form of the name Zemeriah.
?
John Thomas served 3 tours of duty, 3 months each and was pensioned on June 7, 1833 to commence March 4, 1831. Certificate #15,700.
?
On June 3, 1844, Catherine Shoemake Card repeats her declaration; certified by Isaac Stephens, J.P. She was pensioned at $30.00 on March 9, 1844, certificate No. was 8, 173.
?
Zemeriah Card and Catherine Shoemake had the following children in 1850 according to the Federal Census:
?
>>>>>Zemeriah Card was listed as being 45 years of age.
>>>>>Catherine was listed as being 39 years of age,
>>>>>Children:
>>>>>Abraham B. (male) 15
>>>>>Joseph, (male) 14
>>>>>Andrew (male) 13
>>>>>Mary A. (female) 9
>>>>>Catherine, (female) 6
>>>>>Adalade E. (female) 4
>>>>>Deby (female) 4
>>>>>Elizabeth Shoemake, ( has been referred to as Betsy) a daughter of John Thomas, married a John Shoemake who died around 1813.. The couple had two children who were Catherine Shoemake and Isaac Gore Shoemake. Catherine married Zemeriah Card. This being the case, their father would have been John. (Not John Fletcher, but the John who signed the petition in 1807 and bought land from Thomas Holaway).

It is further believed by some that this same John Shoemake who was the husband of Elizabeth, died around the year of 1814. (Ref. This information is gleaned from published material: court documents, and from the descendants of Zemeriah Card).

A story told me by Mr. Rothwell who lives on top of Walden's Mountain on the same land owned by Zemeriah and Catherine Card was about Zemeriah. He said that Zermerich was a recruiter for the Union Army during the Civil War between the states. He would recruit young men for the Northern Army and housed them in a large cave situated up on the mountain until he could smuggle them behind enemy lines to some northern state.

In 1828, Elizabeth Shoemake is shown owning 5,000 acres of land near the Hamilton County Line. Mr.Robert Rothwell whom I visited on June 22, 2006, stated that Zemeriah Card acquired the land through a land grant and homesteaded it. (Ref. First Families of Marion County, Tennessee., 1809-1836 + 1840 Census, page 232 and 245 D.)

In the 1837 tax list, one will find Zimeriah Card, Isaac Shoemate, John Shoemate, Eli Thurman, John Thomas. They are all in district 6. That is the district where the town of Pikeville is. That would be where highway 30 and the Kiuka trace go into the Sequatchie valley. The Indians came across the Kiuka trace coming from the Tennessee River and going intothe Sequatchie Valley.

Notes for SUSANNAH "SUSAN" SHUMAKE:
IMPORTANT NOTE:
Susannah could have been the daughter of Hannah or married one of her sons.
Marriage records for NC list Susannah Shumake Vannoy to Thomas Sutherland. No date given.
Some list her as Susannah Vannoy although I have not found proof of this.
1880 she says her mother was born in SC, same place Hannah was born.
She is believed to have been living in the household of Hannah Shumake in 1840. Ages for both Susannah and Scottie are provided there. Living next door is a John Shumake. Perhaps her husband. Her daughter had a son named John Thomas Ferguson. Thomas for her husband's father's name, perhaps John for her fathers name?

The following is a copy of a letter sent to H. D. Shuemake by R. Grant Jones:

Letter to H. D. Shuemake
January 25, 2003

Dear Mr. Shuemake:

Some weeks ago I wrote to inform you that Hannah Shumake had a daughter, named Susan, born in 1823. I've learned a bit more since then, some of which relates to the material at your web site, particularly to the presence of Shumake children in the Sutherland family in 1850. Since I suspect it may interest you also, I'm passing it along.
I first heard that Hannah Shumake was Susan's mother back in 1967 when I drew up my family tree for a school project. I was given more details in a 1990 letter from my grandmother. She wrote, "William Isaac McGarr married Susan Shoemake. Her mother's first name was Hannah. We don't know her last name. He was born in Ireland and it is believed Susan was too. ... He came to America as a stowaway on a ship, so she must have come later.

"Their sons were Frank, James K. Polk, and John R. Their daughters were Scotty, Emma, Margaret, Martha Ann (who was your great great grandmother) and Annie."

Let me say that this family tradition is remarkable because, although it correctly records the names of Susan's children, it is demonstrably false in other ways. For instance, I have yet to find William Isaac McGarr, though Susan did marry a James McGarr, who appears in the 1860 census for Bledsoe County, Tennessee (dwelling 356). (Perhaps William Isaac was James' father.) The children do not share a single father, but seem to have three separate fathers. Also, Susan was born in Tennessee, not Ireland. An examination of the census records makes me wonder whether Susan was, indeed, Hannah's daughter. She may have been her daughter-in-law.

You have an image posted at your web site of a portion of the 1850 census for Bledsoe County, TN, which includes the Sutherland family. Thomas Sutherland, age 60, is the head of household. Susannah, age 27, is there as well, followed in the listing by two older Sutherland children. Then Scotty Shumake's (12) name appears, followed by Margaret (9), Emily (7) and David F. Sutherland (10 months). Susannah is plainly Susan Shoemake: she is the right age and the children have the right names. (I believe David F. is Frank; the 1860 census makes this plain.) She is also only four dwellings removed from Hannah.

(In 1840, Susan would have been 17, and her daughter Scotty, 2. They could thus be the two females, one zero to five, the other fifteen to twenty years old, who appear in Hannah's household in that year.)
Susan seems to have given birth to three Shumake children, then married the elderly Sutherland, who fathered her fourth child, Frank. On the hypothesis that Susan was Hannah's daughter, and a Shumake herself, why were the first three children (Scotty, Margaret and Emily) given the Shumake name? The most likely alternatives are: (1) the children were illegitimate; and (2) Susan Shumake had married another Shumake. Another option is that (3) Susan was not Hannah's daughter, but had married one of her sons. I do not yet possess enough information to decide among the alternatives.

By 1860, Mr. Sutherland has passed on, and Susan has married James McGarr (dwelling 356). Margaret (18), Emily (15), and Frank (10, Franklin = David F.) are shown under the McGarr name. The new children, Martha (7), James K. Polk (6), and John R. (3), are there as well, as is Scotty (20). She appears to have been married to a Hasting and given birth to three children: Eliza (6), Alice (2), and James F. (four months).

In 1870, James McGarr is no longer in the household (dwelling 14, seventh civil district), but the youngest daughter, Anna, is present, along with her older siblings (except Scotty, Frank, and Martha Ann). (Martha has married Lowra M. Merriman and has a son and daughter of her own.) Out of curiosity, I've searched for Scotty and her son James in the online 1880 U.S. census, but to no avail.

Again, I'm sending this in the hope that this information, coupled with whatever others may provide, will eventually result in the discovery of Hannah's husband's identity. Perhaps someone has the key to the true relationship between Hannah and Susan Shumake McGarr as well.

Sincerely, R. Grant Jones
