Amelia "Emily" Shoemaker Muskat
Birth: Apr. 8, 1851
Oak Hill
Crawford County
Missouri, USA
Death: Oct. 8, 1918
Harvey County
Kansas, USA

"Emily" Shoemaker was the daughter of Benjamin Shoemaker and Elizabeth Wells. She married John Muskat in August 1871 in Mount Pleasant, Arkansas. They were the parents of Mary Elizabeth, Benjamin James, Francis Parthena, Earnest Carol Christopher, John Franklin, Robert Edward and my great grandmother - Minnie Agnes. Emily was also step-mother to John Muskat's son from his first marriage, William.

Emily's life would be greatly saddened because only two of her children would live to adulthood. Also, her husband, John, went to look for gold in Colorado. He sent a letter home from Cripple Creek that contained a gold nugget for his "little Minnie" but he was never heard from again and to this day his descendents do not know what happened to him. Emily died while living with Minnie and her husband, William Logan May, in Hesston, Kansas. Minnie and Will took her back to Missouri to her home place to be buried. She wanted to be buried in Missouri because she was afraid if she were buried in Kansas, the winds would blow all the dirt off her grave.
