    The French family name 'de la Chaumette" goes back as far as the 13th century.

    During the 17th century, Jean de la Chaumette left France and, by way of England, arrived in the
    New World. Today the family name, which means "little roofs", proudly belongs to this winery and
    the premium wines it produces.

    Hello -
    I too am a descendant; my last name is Shumate.
    In 2004 I took the trip of my lifetime--to Rochechouart.
    Long story, but if you're interested, I'll be glad to give you
    some details and share my photos with you.
    Be well

    I am new to this and I am replying to Elfin422's post. I have been doing some research on my family history and ran across this site. I am a De La Chaumette descendant, as well. Your descendant Jean De La Chaumette, born 1660, had a brother named Pierre De La Chaumette, born 1666. He traveled through Martinique or England to the US a few years before Jean, his brother, travled to the US. He planted roots in Gloucester County, NJ, his son moved to Frederick County, MD, and his son moved to NC. That is where I am from. I am very interested in any information and pictures you have from your travels to Rochechouart, France. They would be greatly appreciated because I am planning a trip to France in the next five years. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me. Thank you again.

    I had one of the original von Stauffenburg books. My cousin and I copied it and donated the original to the Wilkes County Library, in Wilkes, North Carolina. It has many fold out documents. My Shumate relative is Frances Shumate (1793) m. to George W. Smoot. She is probably a daughter of Samuel & Ann Peppers Shumate of Henry, Virginia (no proof), but she was married in Henry County. I don't know whether I can help anyone (please only contact me after you have exhausted info on the web) and I will be glad to help you. Two websites to start with are www.shumake.org/Jean%20de%20la%20Chaumette.htm and www.geocities.com/hartranfthistory/Shumate.htm?20089. I found these on a google search of de la chaumatte, you can too. Good Luck, Pam
