Shoemakes-From South Carolina To West Florida


West Florida Shuemakes

John de la Chaumette John had a son by the name of Samuel who came to South Carolina about 1767 This Samuel had four boys: Blackley, John, Moses, Sr., and Samuel Jr. In the following I will trace the line of Moses to the West Florida Shuemakes and to my father, Feet Herrin Shuemake, and on to myself, Harring Dean Shuemake. The following records were taken from the US Federal Census.

Records found in the Archives Building in Columbia South Carolina, Reference Number AA 6964, shows that Samuel Shoemake (Sr.) served 34 days in the SC Malitia in 1772 and was paid two pounds, eight shillings, and six pence, three farthings in silver. In another document with the same Reference Number AA 6964, Samuel is presenting a request to a Mr. William Freeman asking that the bounty be deducted for 50 acres of land used by the said William Freeman. This was done on October 18, 1785. Therefore we know that Samuel Shoemake, Sr., was in the Cheraw District of South Carolina in 1772. As other records will show, he came down to South Carolina, prior to this date along with his family. The records show that he had four sons which I have already named: Blackley, John, Moses and Samuel. Jr. The census records show that Samuel Jr., moved to Bledsoe County, Tennessee and was there listed on the census roll in 1830. Samuel Sr. died sometime prior to 1790 for he is not found listed on the SC Census in 1790. Only his wife Lucy is listed. His sons are found listed on the SC census.

Samuel Shoemake, Sr., son of John De La Chaumette of Virginia, came to South Carolina
where he died prior to 1790. Again I shall begin with Moses, one of his four sons.
