Gregath Company, Inc. is pleased send you this special pre-publication sale for the 2011 edition of the following book:
History of the Shumate Family Kentucky Pioneers, 1475-1992, by Col. Robert S. Riley (Ret.), 1984, revised 2010 edition. ISBN 978-1-936091-01-0, 6×9″, Full Color Hardbound. This Shumate family history consists of two major parts. The first is a narrative account of the family in seventeenth century France and their battle to be free of religious persecution; the immigrants–Jean de la Chaumette and his three sons–John, Samuel, and Daniel–who settled in early Stafford County (now Fauquier), Virginia; the first five generations to include the descendents of John [II] and Daniel [I] in Virginia; and Daniel Shumate [V] and his descendents, many of whom living today are widespread throughout the United States. The second part of this book contains supporting documentation for the narrative account and genealogical lineage charts. There are twelve appendices which document and clarify the lines of descent contained in part one. They consist of church and other records of the family in France and England; extracts of primary and secondary records of Virginia and Kentucky to include probate, deed, tax, and marriage documentation; Federal Census extracts; gravestone inscriptions; and lineage charts constructed to trace one’s own particular line of descent. I want to assure the reader that professional researchers and I, myself, obtained the documentary extracts appearing in these appendices from the Federal Archives, the Virginia and Kentucky State Archives, and various county court files in the United States; from the official national and department (provincial) archives in France; and from well known Huguenot libraries or societies in France and England. A complete reference has been provided for each of the documentary extracts, indicating where it can be found in the official files of those records depositories.
