Can anyone help me with information about the Shoemaker family in Mississippi?

Sine I can see your post Kathy McCain.  I would say it is still active, just no one has posted anything for awhile.

My Shoemakers are my brick wall on my mother's side. My great  great grandfather was John C. Shoemaker born 1842 in Ohio and married Rosa Johnston 24 Nov 1861 in Columbiana County, Ohio. He left his wife and three children and I have not been able to locate where he went. His father was Joseph Shoemaker born 1820/1821 in Ohio and he died about 1901 in Holmes County, Ohio.  John and Rosa had three children: William A. born 1 Dec 1862 in Ohio, and died 18 Aug 1937 in Indiana. Ida Mae (my great grandmother) born 25 July 1865 in Ohio, died 5 Jan 1917 in Huron County, Ohio. and Elizabeth Shoemaker born 16 Aug 1868 in Ohio and died 20 March 1888 in Ohio. She married  ? Thompson (again no other information can be found on him so far).Can anyone help me? John's brother and sisters were: Frank A Shoemaker, Alice Shoemaker, Martha J. Shoemaker and Susannah A. Shoemaker. Thank you.

Does anyone have any information on an Elmer Shoemaker of West Virginia of the late 1800's early 1900's brother Elza sisters Maggie and Dorrie/Dorry? Elmers son was Wilburn Shoemaker

My Shumaker/Shoemaker/Shumacher relatives have been traced back to Germany in the 1500's. I would like to do more parallel branching out at this point, to see how many states my ancestors have covered.
Do any of you have family trees on-line that you could post the links to? Mine is:

If it helps anyone, great...if you can help me, I'd appreciate it even more! I've already found one distant relative on here and would like to find more!

Hello Ohio Shoemakers! I am a descendant of Simon Shoemaker, who settled in Highland County, Ohio in the early 1800's. I would love to hear from any of my Shoemaker cousins. My line is the following: Simon, Samuel, John Weaver, Jacob, Thomas, Estel, Sr., Estel, Jr., Me.

My Shoemaker family originated in Pennsylvania, but by the mid-1700's had settled in Salem county, New Jersey. From there, they migrated westward and are found in Butler Co., OH, Vigo Co., IN, Tazewell, Washington and Stephenson counties, IL, and Gage Co., NE. Feel free to peruse my family tree website...perhaps we're connected! Here's the URL: Use the Name Index to find the Shoemaker's.

Hey Jeff,

Why don't you post your ancestry to the Discussion Forum so that we can have more specifics. Maybe we will be help.
