COX, Elizabeth Catherine

SHOEMAKER, Elias 1 2 3 4

  • Born: 1771, Deleware
  • Marriage: COX, Elizabeth Catherine on 2 May 1800 in Deleware County, Ohio
  • Died: 1862, Mound, Warren County, Indiana at age 91

bullet  General Notes:

I believe that Elias and his family were living in Franklin County, Indiana in 1820. Elias may have served in the War of 1812, as there is a record of Elias Shoemaker serving with the Ohio Militia, but it is unclear if this is the same man. He last appears at the age of 89, living with his daughter, Polly Murphy, and her family in Mound, Warren County, Indiana, and I believe he passed away there.


Elias married Elizabeth Catherine COX on 2 May 1800 in Deleware County, Ohio. (Elizabeth Catherine COX was born in 1781 in Virginia and died in 1850-1860 in Mound, Warren County, Indiana.)
