Hi Norm! I hope I haven't already written you. I've been working on Ancestry all day, and I think my eyes are starting to cross...LOL. I am trying to help my husband, Doug, with his family tree. He is a gggrandson of George Shoemaker and Rachel Halfhill, b.1781-1872. I believe one of the Shoemakers also married a Mary Halfhill, but Rachel is the one stumping us. I read where a Halfhill married a Huron gal, so am wondering if that may be why there are no records beyond Rachel? Could she be half Huron?
Doug grew up in Gallipolis. His mom was Bette Shoemaker, her dad was Roy Shoemaker, his dad, Ruel Shoemaker...and on to George Shoemaker. We are clicking along on the Shoemakers, but have hit the proverbial brick wall on Rachel Halfhhill. Do you have any information on her family you can share? If I could surprize him with some answers, that would be outstanding! :D
Thank you ever so much.
