I know this message is almost a decade old but it immediately caught my attention.
I would be interested in this information as John Omar Shewman is a grandson of Martin Shewman and Mary Ann Miller and a great grandson to Baltes Shewman and Deborah Parks of Upper Canada at the tun of the 18th Century.
Baltes SHEWMAN (SHUMAN SCHEWMAN SCHUMANN)was a British Loyalist supporter.He married Deborah Parke (PARKS) in 1808 in Upper Canada in Fredericksburgh Twp., Lennox County, Midland District, Upper Canada (modern day province of Ontario).
Would love to hear from you.
I can be reached at email@example.com directly by anyone else related to this line.
Baltes and Deborah had five known children:Martin, William, Elizabeth, Christine and Baltes, Jr.
