Nancy, Since I grew up in Prague those are familiar surnames, but I can’t give you any information about descendants. The 1880 U.S. Census is now on line at www.familysearch.com and it can help find a family when only the child’s name is known. This is the information shown:
The census location was E.D. 30, Comanche Co. TX
Head of the Household: Daniel Shumake, age 28, b. AL. Both parents also born in AL.
Angeline Shumake, wife, 30, b. GA, her father born NC, mother b. SC
The children were all born in Texas. (I noticed that the listing shows Anna E. as “E. Annie.” Since an initial is shown first for each child’s name, perhaps all are reversed.)
H. John Shumake, son, age 9
E. Annie, daughter, age 7
D. Syrius, son, age 3.
No date of census is given. Anna probably had not yet had her 8th birthday.
Hope this is helpful.
