My Great Grandmother, Mildred Shumate, was a Fulkerson who was adopted by a Balus Shumate in Madison County , Arkansas. She was born in Tennesse, near Cumberland Gap, on November 13, 1831. She died February 25, 1873. Supposedly, she was given up for adoption by her Father as he was passing through, and the Mother had died. Does anyone know anything of her parents?
