I have the Shoemaker Reunion book that was kept from 1882, when the family of Malachi and Susan Shoemaker first met until 1969. The book has some interesting facts that I will share from time to time.
The first entry in the book is “1882 – October – First Shoemaker Reunion at Sara Spauldings. Sara Spaulding daughter of Malachi and Susan Shoemaker died Dec. 11, 1893 at the age of 62 years.” Obviously someone did this book in retrospect. The following few pages list the years and place of the reunion.
Shoemaker Reunion – Descendants of Malachi and Susan Shoemaker. Malachi Shoemaker buried in Alba, PA cemetery in South West corner.
William Shoemaker – son of Malachi died July 2, 1901 at 84 years of age.
Sara Spaulding – daughter of Malachi died Dec. 11, 1893 at the age of 62
Elizabeth Fenton – daughter of Malachi died July 1, 1901 at 75 years of age
Mrs. Rachel Shoemaker wife of Late Payne shoemaker died Dec. 1, 1892 at the home of her daughter (Mrs. Eva Moore) at Estella, Sullivan County age 79 years.
Until the next installment. Happy New Year
