Other facts

 

Married William SHOEMAKER

Notes

  • In most censuses and other references, she is called Eliza.  Her gravegives here name as Eliza A Shoemaker.  But in the 1885 census, whereshe is the Head of the household, she is reported as Elizabeth.  Elizais a common short for Elizabeth, but also was used as a primary name.

    In the 1850 census, she is only 18 years old, and is reported to havebeen married only within the last year.  So the older children are nother children.  And even the baby may be the child of William's firstwife, though I think it is likely Hiram is Eliza's child.

    1850 Federal Census, Delaware County, Ohio, 26 September, OxfordTownship, page 296B, Hse #2761, Fam #2774
    Wm Shoemaker 26 M Farming $600 Real Estate b Ohio Married within theyear [b abt 1824]

    Francis M Shoemaker 3 M b Ohio [b abt 1847]
    Hiram L Shoemaker 3mos M b Ohio [b abt May 1850]

    Between 1850 and 1856, William and Eliza moved from Ohio to Iowa.They were in Jefferson County, Iowa for the 1856 state census.  In the1856 census, Mary Ann is reported in the position and matching age forFrancis, a son, in the 1850 and 1860 census.  The last child Eli isreported as 0 years old, and born in Iowa.  The last child before him,Annette, was born in Ohio a little over 2 years ago.  so they movedfrom Ohio to Iowa about 1854.  We might assume they moved directly toJefferson County where they are now, and that Eli (Wesley) was born inthat county, but I have not found any more definitive evidence toconfirm that.

    In 1860, they are in Adair County, living in the Grand River Township. By 1870, they have moved to the neighboring county of Madison, in atownship of the same name, named after a river in the area.

    William died in 1879, and in the 1880 census, Eliza is reproted as thehead of the household with several children sti lin tehhousehjold.  Ifoudn it interesting that 17-year-old Carrington is reproted as a FarmLaborer while the older sons, aged 24 and 20, are simply "At Home."Carrington matches Joseph from 1870.  No one is reported as illiteratethis time, and the two younger ones are "In School."
