REGARDING THE DESCENDANTS OF MARTIN SHOFNER: i AM DESCENDED AS FOLLOWS: Martin and Catherine Cooke Roundtree Shofner had Christopher Shofner who married Elizabeth Jennings and they had Jeptha H. who I thought stood for Harrison. Jeptha was born 18 DEC 1811 and died 11 Mar 1886. He married Nancy Logan and lived in Mulberry or Lincoln Co, TN and had my great-grandfather, W.L. or William Loton Shofner, born 3 Sep 1838 and died 28 Feb, 1927 in Lincoln Co., TN. He and wife Lilla Lynn are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Fayetteville, TN. Jeptha is also spelled Japtha by W.L.'s brother, James C. but that was just because of not knowing how to spell it or a typo. James C. Shofner was born June 5, 1845 in Mulberry, TN. In 1922 he and W.L. responded to a questionairre from the CIVIL WAR CENTENNIAL COMMISSION. This is where I got most of my basic information which states that Jeptha HARRISON Shofner was the father of both and the mother was Nancy Logan, daughter of Rueben Logan and Elizabeth Ingle. Jeptha and Nancy had W.L. or William Loton and James C. but I am not sure about the other children. What they write about their lives is very interesting and you can order this from Stones River National Battlefield, Rt. 10, Box 495, Old Nashville Hwy., Murfreesboro, TN 37160. I can give you more information if you write me at my web address.
