There was not much activity for the state in February. The month was filled with a lot of personal stuff. I also spent time helping a friend begin her family research. Please keep an eye on the Guerrero – Vasquez Family History page under “Family Research” on the Texas home page. I am excited about this project because it is my first project related to researching families of Hispanic, African American, Native American, Chinese, Japenese,…
I have several ebooks about Texas (or a particular area of Texas) that I would like to transcribe / format for posting on the Texas county pages at Trails To The Past. All of these books are in the ‘public domain’ (not copyrighted) and were written in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.

Hello. I am searching for information on my 4x gr-grandfather, William Riley Shoemaker m. to Phebe Spencer. His son, James B Shoemaker is my 3x gr-grandfather. I am trying to prove WM R Shoemaker's birth, place of birth and his parents. I thank you in advance for your help :)
Mr Vines, I'm also out of the Russell Co Shoemakers. I noticed you mentioned Alexander F. I've been at his burial place. His stone was turned over and broken in the middle likely from farm equipment. I'm looking for James' parents who I believe immigrated from England about 1749. Any info on this?
My Shoemaker clan is closely allied with the Vanderpools and I was told we were of Dutch-German heritage. The first record I have is William Riley Shoemaker 1775-1847 born in Maryland and died in Virginia, married Phebe Ann Spencer. One child Jacob 1816-1902 (in Kentucky) who married Katherine E. Kaiser and had a son Andrew. Andrew 1845-1934 married Margaret Evelyne Baker and fathered David Thomas 1872-1928 (South Lebanon, OH). David was my grandfather. He married my grandmother, Phoebe Evaline Vanderpool. My mother was Laura Emily Shoemaker Newton. I have more concise dates on some of these if you are interested.
