Re: Agnes Irene Shupe, 1875 - 1958, TN & ILL
I had to do a little detective work for this one.SHUPE is a fairly uncommon name in Cass Co, IL.I found a Robert SHUPE who was about the same age as your Agnes Irene, and an Elizabeth SHUPE (nee BROWN) who was old enough to be their mother, both living in Beardstown, Cass Co., IL.In two censuses, Robert had an Aunt Permelia BROWN living with him, which would make him Elizabeth's son.I believe Agnes Irene was Elizabeth's daughter.Depending on which census you look at, Robert was born in either VA or TN.
There is a picture of Anna Marie DAVIS (nee GOFF) with her parents Peter and Roena Agnes Irene GOFF on this page:
Um, ok, I just noticed that the above photo was submitted by Kathy Best!LOL.You should have mentioned that her first name was Roena/Rowena.
Using the name Roena I found this family in the 1880 census for Missouri, Brown Co, IL:
SHOUP, A.K. age 35 b. VA
wife Elizabeth age 36 b. TN
dau Alice V. age 12 b. VA
dau Ida E. age 9 b. VA
son Robert B. age 6 b. VA
dau Rowena age 5 b. TN
dau Rosetta age 3 b. IL
dau Suda age 0 b. IL
There's an Andrey K. SHUPE b. 24-Aug-1847, d. 14-Apr-1881, buried in Beardstown City Cemetery.Robert B. and his wife Myrtle are also buried there.
There's an IL death record for Elizabeth SHUPE b. 12-Apr-1848 in TN, d. 21-Oct-1917 in Beardstown, IL.Parents were Elias BROWN and Susa CLARK.
Possible match, 1870 census for Abingdon, Washington Co, VA:
SHUPE, Andrew K. age 22 b. VA
Elizabeth age 20 b. TN
Alice B. C. age 2 b. VA
John age 1 b. VA
They are living next door to an S. Floyd SHUPE, age 27, Mary, 24, Elbert, 2, and Laura, 1.
On the other side of them is Andrew SHUPE, age 60, Sarah A., age 60, and Frances E., age 18.
There's a user submitted tree for Andrew's family here:
