Re: Searching for Shoemaker connections...Indiana, Illinois
Dear Karyn, I have found that Eleanor SHOEMAKER did not pass away prior to 1891. Effie Jean LOWELL married Edward (AKA Thomas E) HALEY and was living in Nebraska in 1900.Eleanor LOWELL, born Oct 1825 in Indiana, was living with them.See US Census NE 1900, NE Lancaster, Mill Precinct, page 211B, lines 86-92.See also lines 1-6 for Eleanor’s son, Charles LOWELL, born Sept 1846 and lines 54-57 for grandson Eugene. See also lines 73-75 on page 212 for grandson Albert LOWELL.Another son of Eleanor, Milton LOWELL born May 1852, and his family, are listed in US Census NE 1900, NE Saunders Co, Richland Precinct, Page 183, Lines 1-11.
Could you tell me how you know Eleanor SHOEMAKER was born in Vigo County, IN and that Effie Jean Lowell was born 4 Feb 1867 and died 18 May 1958, Morgan Co., Colorado?Thanks, Joe
