I have lots of info on the Decendents of Samuel Shoemaker and wife Margaret Russum. Their children where Elizabeth,Tolbert,John, Russum,Oliver,George,Andrew,Jasper,Thomas,and Arabella.
I believe everyone inquiring in this Shoemaker site is decendents of this family. I,m a decendent to Francis M the twin to John Marion. "Hi beth!" John's her people.
Andrew Shoemaker married Darcus and had the children NancyW,Sam'l A, Nancy C, William C, George, John, Francis.and maybe Martha
All of Samuel's and Margarets children served in the military during the civil war. If your from the crowd of AJ and the boys you can welcome yourself to the son's and daughters of the confederacy, because everone of em fought.
They were a scraby bunch of rebel men of men, tougher than nails I bet, I have military records that I can share along with too much to write in this section.
Theres a alot of Cooper women marrin these boys too. Darcus and Sarah. I feel AJ died shortly after the war and after having the twins. Darcus takes in alot of AJ's brothers as they get old also.
