      Notes for Jean De La Chaumette IV:
      British records show him living in Isle of Wright, England from about 1881 to 1694. Jean is listed as being in the British Army. He immigrated to the Island of Martinque, British West Indies about 1708. After the death of his wife, Elizabeth by an epidemic, he immigrated to the American Colonies about 1717. He is listed as the first French Emigrant to settle in Stafford County, Virginia in 1720. He purchased a sector of land near the Elk Run Parrish in 1722, and purchased land from William Allen in 1723 near Elk Run, Stafford County, in what is now Fauquier County.
      "The Daniel & Millie Shumate Family," by Haskell D. Shumate; Giles Co. History, p. 344: "Jean de la CHAUMOTTE, fled France with many other Huguenots in the late 1600s and came to England. Jean served in the English Army and adopted the English spelling of his name, which became John de la Shumate. Johns wife died in the French Martinique, he then departed for the colony of Virginia in 1723 and purchased two hundred acres of land at Elk Run in Stafford Co., Va. Until 1730 this area was a part of Prince William Co. and later in 1759 became Fauquier Co. According to the tobacco list of Overwharton Parrish in 1724, John de la Shumate, and his three sons were listed as John Jr., over 16, Samuel over 14 and Daniel over 12. The Shumates remained in this area until after the American Revolution; then they began to migrate southward to the Carolina's and Georgia and westward to West Virginia, Tennessee and Missouri."
