In 2001 I started my search for my Sheufelt family in Sanilac County only going on a name. I quickly learned there were many variations of my surname spelling and we were all connected, starting originally as Zufelt to Shewfelt, Shufelt, Shoefelt etc..
Sheufelt spelling though seems to be only used by my direct line only. There are a few thing I have never been able to solve.
My family is Jacob and Emeline Shewfelt/Sheufelt from Lexington, Sanilac Children: Melinda SHEWFELT Agnes (Nancy) SHEWFELT Mary SHEWFELT Lucinda SHEWFELT James SHEWFELT Rachel SHEWFELT Jacob SHEWFELT Samuel SHEUFELT Margaret SHEWFELT

Jacob was living with his daughter, Margaret in Sanilac, Sanilac county in 1880.(at his daughter Nancy and William McKays's Home) Jacob died sometime after February 1880. Where did he go?
Daughter Margaret no further documentation after 1880? Where did she go?
Daughter Lucinda Sheufelt married Nathan G Mckenzie. She died between 12 May 1861 and 7 Jan 1864. She could have died or remarried in St. Clair or Sanilac County. Where did she go?

These are really the only last things I have not be able to find information on. There are many family trees online about my family, but no one has found this information either.
