*NOTE
This obit. does have a mistake. It states that Elizabeth is to 
be buried at Horse Prairie Cemetery. Elizabeth shares a stone 
with her husband at the Old Baptist Cemetery in Jefferson county 
and has both a birth and death date. The Horse Prairie Cemetery 
inventory does not list an Elizabeth Shoemaker.
