  • ID: I47
  • Name: Elizabeth Canote
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 12 MAY 1780 in nearHagerstown, WashingtonCo, Maryland
  • Death: 10 NOV 1856 in LawrenceCo, Indiana
  • Burial: SheeksCem, MarionTwp, LawrenceCo,Indiana
  • Reference Number: 51
  • Note:
    !Her surname was listed as Caynote by her son, David L. Sheeks in his
    "Genealogy Records of the Sheek Family from 1774," available at the Mitchell
    Indiana Community Library, which library also provided the cemetery records.

    !It also has been spelled Kanote, Canotte, Cannotte. and Canode. It is believed
    to come from the German Knode or Kanode.

    !After George built their home in 1816, I am presuming that all of th
    e children
    from that date on were born in the Sheeks House. I have read cases o
    f wheresome of the children are mentioned as having been born there
    , and others have
    not been so cited.

    !Legal documents on microfilm in the Genealogical Department of the I
    ndiana
    State Library in Indianapolis indicated that Elizabeth took legal act
    ion
    successfully, after her husband's death l) to have their home and lan
    d put in
    her name after her husband's death, and 2) to be named guardian of her
    daughter, Cynthia. (See notes with Cynthia)

    !Elizabeth's birthplace as being "near" Hagerstown, came from Lois A
    . Cramer
    and Gaylynn Wood Jean. David L. Sheeks' records only list the stat
    e and date
    of birth. Wayne Gard's "Sam Bass wrote "...Elizabeth Canotte, wa
    s a native of
    Hagerstown, Maryland." p. 6.

    !Her cemetery record on computer at the Mitchell Community Public Lib
    rary,
    with other Sheeks, a copy of which is in my Sheeks Album, gave her da
    te of
    death and states that she was the wife of George Sheeks and was 76 ye
    ars, 5
    months, and 29 days old when she died. My P.A.F. date calculator mak
    es her
    birthdate 12 May 1780, which agrees with the record of her son, Davi
    d L.;
    however, Elizabeth's date of death in David's records erroneously ass
    igns that
    date to the Elizabeth that was married to his older brother, Samuel.

    !Her place of death came from John Lynch, a Sheeks descendant, and ca
    retaker of
    the Sheeks Cemetery. Jean Lydigsen specified Mitchell as the town o
    f death.

    In Mary Jean (Speldie) Good's article about George Sheeks following m
    y file on
    George, she wrote: "On 6 February 1800, in Madison County Kentucky
    , George
    married Elizabeth Canote (Knode), born 12 May 1780, in Hagerstown, Wa
    shington
    County, Maryland. She was probably the daughter of John and Rosanna
    h Canote
    (Knode) who had moved from Washington County Maryland to Augusta Coun
    ty
    Virginia about 1790, and then to Madison County Kentucky in the earl
    y 1800's.
    Some of their children apparently preceded them. [New paragraph] Geor
    ge amd
    Elizabeth lived in Wayne County Kentucky for approximately sixteen ye
    ars.
    During this time seven children were born."

    !Paul Zebe of Cambridge, Massachusetts, a descendant of Jacob Canote
    , first
    contacted me by phone in March 1998 and he eventually sent me copie
    s of the
    documents LDS had concerning the marriage of George Sheeks and Elizab
    eth
    Canote, i.e. LDS Microfilm 0183304, #1, Madison County KY Marriage Bo
    nds, Loose
    documents, p. 190, which lists the marriage of "George Sheaks and Eli
    zabeth
    Kanotes February - 6th Day 1800" among those Christopher Clark certi
    fied that
    he married "by virtue of Licence" in Madison County, May 1st 1800. On
    e of the
    pages indicates that George and Elizabeth were both of Madison Count
    y KY. The
    copies are in my Sheeks Album.

    !See the notes with Rosannah (Sheeks) Albin and pictures of the cover
    let
    in Mary Jean Good's possession in Medford, OK. It has been passed do
    wn through
    the generations and is believed to have been woven on the chestnut lo
    om
    George made for Elizabeth, which loom is on display at the Sheeks Hou
    se in
    Mitchell, Indiana and is still working today. Rugs are made on it wh
    ich are
    sold in the Inn there at Spring Mill State Park.
