Re: Shoemaker/ Miller of Scranton

In Reply to: Shoemaker/ Miller of Scranton by Donna of 918

Mary Ann Jane Miller was born 21 Sept 1862. Her children's marriage records list her birthplace as Lehigh Gap, PA. The 1870 census record for Levi W & Helena (Lana) Miller has them living in Lower Towamensing, Carbon County, PA (Post Office: Lehigh Gap) along with Mary and her brothers George and Wilson.

Samuel F Shoemaker went by Simon. He was born in Wright Township, PA. His marriage to Mary Miller was his second, although I don't have any information about his first marriage.

Samuel Shoemaker and Mary Miller married in or around 1881 and had the following children:

Marjorie "Maud" Mary Shoemaker b. 1884 d. 1934
Wilson Simon Shoemaker b. 1888 d. 1941
Lillian "Lulu" Edna Shoemaker b. 1891 d. 1950
Charles Ezra Shoemaker b. 1893 d. 1968
Stephen Henry Shoemaker b. 1896 d. 1965
Robert G. "Sterling" Shoemaker b. abt 1901 d. 1955
Dorothy G. Shoemaker b. 1903 d. 2004

They also had two additional children. I don't have names or exact birth/death dates, but I believe one was born around 1882 and died before 1892, and the other was born around 1898 and died before 1910.

I believe all of their children were born in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Around 1908 the family moved to Scranton. Around 1919, they moved to Allentown. They moved back to Scranton by 1930.

I have a lot of information about Samuel and Mary's descendants to share! I would love to find info on their family and about Samuel's parentage and the Miller family.
