P,A. and NANCY SHOEMAKE/ 1880 Census of Smith Co TN
Posted by: Joan Cole Clark (ID *****4131) Date: October 15, 2003 at 16:40:19

Listed on the 1880 Census of Smith Co TN are the family of P.A. Shoemake age 53 born in TN. mother and father born VA. Wife Nancy age 45 born TN. mother and father born in NC. a daughter Mary age 18 born in TN., daughter Susen age 16 born TN. a daughter Eliza age 13 born TN, a son Miles age 13 born TN., a son John age 11 born TN. and a son Andrew age 9 born TN.
I have a Nancy Cole daughter of John Cole and Nancy Graves Cole born 1835 in Lincoln Co TN. Her father John was born in NC and her mother in SC. I have a marriage record found in Lincoln Co TN which shows that Nancy married James A. Shoemake in 1859. Probate records of Lincoln Co show her as an heir named Nancy Shoemake.
I wonder if the P.A. was transcribed wrong and should have been James A.??
Any of the Shoemake researchers have any information to help solve the mystery? Any and all information will be appreciated.
