|I may never be able to prove this, but the dates and circumstancial data suggest that Amanda George SHIPMAN was the daughter of Reuben and Margaret (LYNN, LINN) GEORGE of Butler County, OH. Because of her husband's remarriage in 1828, Margaret died within a few years after her March 10, 1825 marriage to Reuben George Jr. Different sources indicate that Amanda George Shipman was born May 10 1826 or Jun 24 1826. Reuben Jr. married again September 11, 1828, still in Butler Co, and had at least 5 children with his second wife, Nancy McCOTTER GEORGE. Reuben Jr. and his brother moved their families to Andrew County MO in the mid 1840s. Amanda "Mandy" George married Charles Edmund Shipman in Andrew Co MO (Hodges Marriage Records) Jan 19, 1845. The couple had already left for Wisconsin by the 1850 census.|

"In Feb 1845 Alvin's son Charles Edmund Shipman 'married a school teacher,' Sarah Williams and being discontented over the sickness in Missouri, in the fall of 1846 set out for Wisconsin."
|[NOTE #1: County records show that Sarah Ann Williams
married Isaiah Shipman 1 Jan 1846 in Andrew Co, MO, not Charles.]|
NOTE #2: The Andrew County MO records show that Charles Shipman married Mandy George there on 19 Jan 1845.
"Charles wrote his father in Missouri asking that the family come with him and take over a section of Government land in Wisconsin. In the family council held over the letter from Charles, "mother decided that it was time we should go." So, on May 10 1848, with ten Shipmans, three yoke of oxen, two wagons (one covered), five cows, eight head of sheep, etc., they set out. At one point a baby seven months old disappeared one morning as they were starting their day's journey. It was finally found rolled up with some bedding, and sleeping. One night they camped at the same site with another family. The man offered the Shipmans some whiskey. "We put the bottle to our lips but didn't take any. The man took a drink and became very sick as his wife had put something in it for use as medicine."
"In Iowa they passed several deserted locations. An elderly gentleman told them that the "black erysipelas" had caused many deaths. All that was left of his family was himself and a daughter.
"The Shipmans crossed the Mississippi River at Smith's Ferry five miles from Bellview. It took the ferry five trips and they had to pay $1.00 per trip. They met Charles at Prairie DuSac, Wisconsin. "It was a day of joy for all of us. We now had land and a place we could call home."
Taken from an account by Alvin's son Isaiah Hatch Shipman.
' brothers Isaiah, John, Ezra, and Albert settled in Chippewa County, near Chippewa Falls, WI (genealogy). Some of their children lived in Douglas Co, WI (genealogy). (Sauk Co. genealogy)

, a descendant of Edward Shipman, was born Mar 22 1734 (VT?) and died Mar 12 1858 at Sauk County, WI.
On September 18, 1808 in VT, Alvin married Mary (Molly) HATCH, daughter of Noah Hatch and granddaughter of Isaiah Hatch. The ceremony was preformed by Samuel Shipman, Justice of the Peace. (Could this be the same Samuel Shipman? He is from the same Edward Shipman line (d Sept 15 1697) but through Edward's son William, not Sergeant John Shipman.) Alvin and Molly had no children. Alvin served in the War of 1812. (After 1858, Capt. Fuller's Co. Pension #8365 was granted to his widow, Sophia.)
On October 25, 1814, Alvin married Sophia BROWN at Hardwick, VT. They moved from VT to Silver Lake, near Montrose, PA, where son Charles Edmund Shipman was born May 20, 1819. The Shipmans lived there two and a half years before moving on to Canandaigua City, NY, where they lived one and a half years. Next they moved to Richland County, OH, near Mansfield, and lived there 16 years, where they had 4 more sons: Isaiah Hatch Shipman (b May 5 1823), John Brown Shipman (b Oct 25 1826), Ezra Brown Shipman (b Apr 14 1829), and Albert Hatch Shipman (b July 9 1832).
On August 16 1838, the Shipman family headed west to get land in the Platte Purchase in Missouri. They had a covered wagon and two yoke of cattle.
(Page 390) "Some of the experiences of Alvin and family on their trip to Missouri are good illustrations of those pioneering days. Alvin's son Albert became ill near Springfield, Ill. The oldest son, Charles, was sent ahead to find a doctor. When the doctor saw the sick boy, he insisted that the Shipman family go to his home where the doctor's wife nursed the boy for four weeks. On another occasion Alvin's party was overtaken by 70 wagons of Mormons on the way west. Another time Alvin traveled for a time with a family which had horses. The father of this party went ahead each day and prepared a camp site for the nights. 'There were "campers" everywhere in those days.'
"Along the road Alvin added to his possesions, so that by Sept. 1840 they had two teams of horses, some cows, and 18 hogs. At this stage they were on the LaMoines River forty miles from the Mississippi.
"Travelling over into Missouri, their hogs ate something 'whir-h (which?) drove them blind and crazy' and Alvin lost all of them. By 1843 he ran out of money and the family took jobs in saw mills, on tobacco and corn farms, at carpenter work, etc. Alvin rented a farm, bought two town lots and built a house. He took a contract to supply the stone for a new Court House. During the five years at Andrew County, Missouri, 'we took the shaking ague every winter; you could come into the house where there would be five or six down with the ague at the same time. If you would ask them questions it was doubtful if they could answer as their chins would quiver and their teeth would rattle. The words would be shaken out of their mouths instead of spoken.' The highest wages in Missouri were 37 1/2 cents per day. The people were mostly from the southern states and their language in typical southern speech. These people lived on corn dodgers, bacon, and coffee to wash it down. Pork was 2 1/2 cents, coffee 10 cents a pound, corn 10 cents a bushel, sugar 3 to 4 cents a pound. Alvin cleared land and raise the most profitable crop, which was tobacco.
