"The Shuey family had 6 girls and an older brother who
died at age 7 or 8. They were: Daisy (who was murdered -
download a PDF of the newspaper articles about Daisy's murder); Bess (born in
1884); Mable (our grandmother, born 1882, was adopted out to the Gary
family); Stella (who was put out for adoption, but returned to the
family when she was not adopted); Lil and Maude.
Grandfather Shuey, as Mable remembered, was bedridden
and had to have pulleys from the ceiling that would help him. He and his
family came from Wisconsin."
Joshua and Inez' great-great granddaughter related
this to us:
"...did you know that Joshua
gave all the girls names of horses. He traded in horses and would sell
them off of the back of a wagon when he started to get crippled. The
crippling arthritis runs in the family and several members of the family
died young with it. Anyway, I guess he liked horses so he gave those
types of names to his daughters."
She provided us with a
PDF she transcribed from microfilms of the original newspaper
accounts of her great-grandmother Daisy Shuey-Anderson's murder.
Once you read the accounts, you will see that Daisy was a hero.
