West Florida Shuemakes

You will notice the difference in the spelling of the name of West Florida Shuemakes than those found in South Carolina. My grandfather, James M. (Jim) Shuemake began spelling the name with a "U" upon arriving in Florida in 1897. The reason, I do not know.

West Florida Shuemakes

John de la Chaumette John had a son by the name of Samuel who came to South Carolina about 1767 This Samuel had four boys: Blackley, John, Moses, Sr., and Samuel Jr. In the following I will trace the line of Moses to the West Florida Shuemakes and to my father, Feet Herrin Shuemake, and on to myself, Harring Dean Shuemake.
