In Reply to: Shue's of Pope Co. Ark. by Lori Hartman Hegar of 278

Lori,
I don't know what you have received already about John Shue who married Mary Phillips, but I have a pension record for him from his Civil War service. He was living in Quitman, Cleburne County, Arkansas at the time. One form states that he had lived in various places in Texas for the past 43 years. He was 83 years old at the time. This pension has a certified copy of the marriage record, his death certificate from Arkansas and a list of his children with their birthdates. His full name: John William Shue born 09 May 1841 in Cabarrus Co. NC died 17 Jun 1926 Quitman, AR married Mary Phillips 03 May 1871 Pope Co. AR. Mary was born 15 Jun 1855 Pine Bluff, Jefferson County, Arkansas died 27 Apr 1928 at Quitman. They are buried in Fairbanks Cemetery in Cleburne Co. AR. Will be glad to send you a copy of this pension record. There are 13 pages. His mother's name was Susan, not sure if his father was John but suspect he was. He also had a son John J. Shue born 30 Aug 1891. Which one of these John's is your grandfather?
