What was your grandfather's name. I have a Laura Melinda Shoalmire b. 1861 d. 1936 who married Littleton M. Chambliss b. 1835 d. 1908. I know of only 1 child they had and she was Virginia Shoalmire b. 1879 d. ???? I do not know who she married.
The Frederic Shoalmire and I am looking for married Ann Goodbread. Both of them came from Germany. At least that is how our older family members remembered it years ago. I am not sure of birthdates or deathdates but, if I were to guess I qould guess the birthdate year at around 1830 to 1835. And they did settle aroung Natchitos, LA. Some of their children went on to East Texas.
Any other information you may have on any of the Shoalmires would be most appreciated.
I knew some Brittains back in Shelby County, Texas where I grew-up.
