No researcher has been able, so far as I know,to find the parents of Jane E. Shoemaker who married Daniel Agee in 1785 or 1786 in Buckingham Co VA.The report has always been that she was born in 1769.
But I think I have found the answer, or at least a possible answer..
In St James Parish of Goochland Co VA John Shoemaker and wife Sarrah (Jerrat)christened their daughter Jeanie (born 7 Jan same year), which is apparently the name by which they called her and sounds a lot like Jane E.In fact Jeanie may be correct and Jane E. was mistakenly recorded as her name when they married.
I would be glad to send more details on the Shoemakers for those interested.I am working on building a database on the Jarretts / Jerretts.
