  1. Hi Cousin. I just found out (yesterday) I’m a descendant of Mark Hardin Shumate also. My 2X ggrandmother claimed she was adopted, but she was not–DNA tests just proved that her father was Joseph Bayless Shumate, a son of Mark Hardin Shumate. Not sure why she would tell everyone she was adopted; that part is still a mystery. Thank you for the pictures and the Shumate history. I have to learn about the Shumates!
