Michael Shookman,
who died September 3, 1863, at his farm in Boeuf township, Franklin County, Missouri, was born in Loudon County, Va., in 1759, making him one hundred and four years old. He was sixteen or seventeen July 4, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was adopted. He married and had several children in Virginia. He then removed to Tennessee, and afterwards to Missouri, where he arrived about 1830, and has remained ever since. He has ever been an industrious, good citizen, and has raised a large family. He died leaving twenty-two children, 82 grandchildren, and thirty great-grand-children. His eldest child is over eighty years old. He had, doubtless, more grandchildren and great-grandchildren; but the family are so scattered that many of them have not been heard from for years. What life this man must have seen! His country first redeemed during his youth from a foreign yoke, and at the time of his death plunged into a most cruel and needless civil war.
