Have only seen a Hugh Francis SHUMATE/SHOEMATE m. on 12-23-1854, Gallatin County, IL . His wife's name was Elizabeth J. ABBOTT. Per his marriage application in DuBois County, IN, his spelling for last name was SHUMATE. During his lifetime it was SHOMATE(as we knew it) and SHOEMATE in his obituary. Would like to find parents of George W. SHUMATE, so that we know which branch of the Jean Baptiste DE LA CHAUMETTE tree we belong to. Would like to find Elizabeth J. ABBOTT's parents and families,too. When George died in Princeton, Gibson County, IN, he was buried in the IOOF Cemetary, one grave next to his is that of a Lucinda SHOMATE, some believe it to be a child, but according to sexton at cemetary, he doesn't have any record of where she came from or who she is.
