HISTORY OF THE SHUMATE FAMILY

 (1475-1992)

 

 

Copyright 1992, Library of Congress Call Number:  CS71.S5628 1992

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS:  The Shumate family history consists of two major parts. The first is a narrative account of the family in seventeenth century France and their battle against religious persecution; the immigrants--Jean de la Chaumette and his three sons--John, Samuel, and Daniel--who settled in Stafford County (now Fauquier), Virginia; the first five generations of the descendents of John [II] and Daniel [I] Shumate in Virginia and other States; and Daniel Shumate [V] of Kentucky and his descendents, many of whom living today are widespread throughout the United States. The second part of this book contains documentation in support of the narrative chapters and genealogical lineage charts.  There are twelve appendixes which document and clarify the lines of descent contained in Part One.  They consist of church and other records of the family in France and England; extracts of primary and secondary records of Virginia and Kentucky to include probate, deed, tax, and marriage documentation; Federal Census extracts; gravestone inscriptions; and lineage charts constructed to trace one's own particular line of descent.  A complete reference has been provided for all documentary extracts, indicating where they can be found in the official records depositories.

 

 This book has a hard cover and consists of 900 pages (Second Edition).
