EDITOR’S NOTE
Where do you look to find your history?
As part of the effort to preserve the information in and about cemeteries in Frederick County, FRECOGS, in association with the Genealogical Council of Maryland, and with myself and Edie Eader as chairmen, is looking for information on all cemeteries and their history in the county.
For the present, we are going to start with information in the Titus Atlas (1873), ADC maps, and the cemetery listing in Jacob Mehrling Holdcraft’s 2 volume series,  Names in Stone .  Please be aware if you use the  Names in Stone  set that there are many cemeteries that were omitted, and that the information about the cemeteries listed may be incorrect.
From our readers, we are looking for property owner’s names, plat locations (if possible), cemetery current and past names, road names, deed references to set asides, and any other information you think may pertain to a cemetery.
If you have an interest in the cemeteries of other Maryland counties, please write to the Genealogical Council of MD., 12631 Prices Distillery Rd., Damascus, MD. 20872, to find the contact person for that county.
Also, one of the books in the ‘New in the Library’ section is listed with the asterisks at the beginning of the title.  This is the book for those people who need 1790-1880 census information for the different wards and districts within cities.  If you know the area, this book will tell you which film you need.  It is currently kept with the basic reference books next to the door.

SHUMATE/HOFFMAN CONNECTION

Chronicle Being a Narrative History of the Shomette Family (1650-1985)  by Donald Grady Shomette.

By 1757 Daniel Shumate (of Elk Run, Westmoreland Co, VA) was 43 years old.  Sometime before that year, but probably no later than 1756, his wife, Elizabeth Taliaferro Shumate, must have died, for Daniel proceeded to woo and wed a second wife.  His new spouse to be was one Mary Elizabeth Hoffman, daughter of John and Barbara Hoffman, tenants of the Manor of Monocacy in Frederick County, Maryland.  Mary Elizabeth’s father, John, was even younger than Daniel, so, as Von Stauffenberg suggests, she could not have been born much before 1730.  That Daniel would have married a Maryland girl, a lass from a distant frontier establishment in another colony, might at first glance seem unusual.  However, communication and socialization between Maryland and Virginia plantation society was not all that uncommon, especially among many of the small planters.  Frequently, Virginians carried their tobacco into Maryland to avoid higher taxes, such as that brought on by the Two Penny Act, and/or to take advantage of better prices.  Perhaps Daniel, the younger of the two brothers holding down the farmstead in Virginia, in his remorse, simply took off for distant parts sometime after the death of Elizabeth.  Whatever the cause or the  means of meeting and courting, Mary Elizabeth Hoffman and Daniel Shumate were married on February 1, 1757 at the Reformed Church in Frederick.
What were Daniel and Mary Elizabeth like?  How did they act, and what were their modes of dress, habits, and mannerism?  Such questions can, of course, never be answered, except in the context of the society and the genre of life in which they existed.  Mary Elizabeth, the daughter of simple tenant farmers, was undoubtedly equally simple in her attire.  Her dress, living near the edge of the frontier, would have been neither picturesque nor colorful.  As with the attire of the frontiersman, leather would have been the most important material in her clothing, supplemented by crude homespuns and such cloth as might be infrequently purchased in towns such as Alexandria, Dumfries, or Fredericksburg.  She may have worn a bodice of fustian, linsey-woolsey, or leather cut loosely to the body and sometimes laced in front.  Under it would have been worn a coarse linen or cotton chemise.  Collars would have been seldom worn; a small shawl or kerchief made of soft material might be thrown over the shoulders and around the neck.  Her skirts would have been cut full, though without excessive amounts of material, falling in straight folds from under the bodice and hanging around the ankles;  they would have been shorter than those worn in the more settled districts, such as along the lower James River, or in the towns, because of the more active life the frontier-planter woman led.  In inclement weather she would probably not have worn a hat at all, but would have thrown a hood or shawl over her head.  In warm weather, she might have gone barefoot, but in the winter, she would wear stout, square-toed shores or moccasins.  No attempt would have been made, in the rural agricultural society in which she lived, to achieve the formal and elaborate coiffures of the town ladies of Dumfries of Alexandria, but instead, she would have worn her hair long, gathered into plaits, or coiled in a knot at the back of her head.  Coarse linen aprons would have been worn frequently, and woolen stockings were a must in cold weather.  The simple aids to feminine adornment, such as jewelry, fans, patches, or ribbons, would have been a rarity on Elk Run.  Like her husband, she was probably illiterate.
(I would appreciate hearing from our readers of any other of this same type of record of ancestors from Frederick County, MD-TDL)
The family moved to South Carolina in 1760.  By 1773 Daniel Shumate has married his third wife Tabutha Dodson, and there are other births listed.
