I am specifically look for descendants of Thomas Shumate, born about 1784 in Virginia.
He married Malinda Kyger, born about 1808 in either Rockingham or Augusta County, Virginia.
Thomas and Malinda were living in Augusta County, Virginia in 1850.
Their son, William J. Shumate, born about 1820, married first Elizabeth "Bessie" Campbell and second, Virginia Bower.
William and his second wife Virginia were in Augusta County in 1870 but were in Fauquier County in 1880.
Since there were other Shumate families in Fauquier County, Virginia in 1850, feel there must be family ties.
William Shumate and Virginia Bower's son, William O. Shumate, born August 1858, was in Lee District, Fauquier County, Virginia in 1900. William O. Shumate married a widow, Ida M. (maiden name unknown) Middleton. Ida must have died before 1920 because William was living with Hattie (maiden name unknown), born about 1868 in West Virginia in Lee District, Fauquier County, Virginia in 1920.
William O. Shumate and Ida M. ? had the following children:
Nancy, born March 1888 in VA William Lester Shumate, born April 1892 in VA Ida Shumate, born March 1894 Arline Shumte, born 1898
Would like to correspond with anyone with ties to this family.
