Dorothy , I have been searching for my ancestor's family for years with little success.Dr. John H.G. SHOE / SHUE was born in 1810 in Baltimore Co, MD.Parents & siblings unknown. When I found him on the 1840 census , he was living in Kosciusko Co, IN with another adult male , his wife & two female children.I believe the other adult male was Henry SHOE / SHUE who owned land in that county.Since they were grouped in the same age bracket , I am leaning toward them being brothers. Do you know if any of your SHUEs ended up in the Mid-West ?
