I'm not familiar with Josie Shopshire, but the line I'm researching also spelled the surname Shopshire. My line is from Pike County, Ohio.They were originally from New Jersey where the surname was spelled Shropshire, but for some reason dropped the R after moving to Ohio.I found that some of their descendents picked the R back up, while some continued without.
I hope this helps.
