Thanks very much for the information on Emma Shumway. Since William Mason married at least twice after Emma, I was curious how old she was when she pased away. My maternal ancestry involves other families from Brown County besides Mason & Shumway...Clark, Wise, Watts, Seitz, Lane. Most the information I have is related to the Wise family; but that's a mystery prior to James Wise ca 1790 Maryland. Veteran War of 1812, married Dec 25, 1814 to Rachel Watts in Jefferson Co, IN. Still in Jefferson Co, IN in 1820 (census). Resided in Brown Co. Died Sep 28, 1880 in Wise Hollow, Brown Co. No info on parents names or specific origin, just Maryland. If you have any info about James' parentage that would be very interesting. Thanks again for the info on Emam Shumway.
