I was sent a detailed Warmath genealogy in 1998 by Connie Lane, descendent of the Chesterfield Warmath line. She sent it with the note, "The Rosamon info came from Barbara Morgan and the Warmath info from John Warmath (except my branch)." Some of the information that follows comes from her tree, and for some I am indebted to Warmath descendents Carolyn Andrighetti and Pat Bishop who provided additional information by email in 2007.

Pat Bishop forwarded an email from Carolyn Andrighetti in 2007 that said, in part, that Mary, daughter of Thomas Warmath Sr., "married Julius Josephus Dela Rucker Shumate on September 6, 1837 in Davidson County, TN. You will find the name Julius running through the Warmath family, and this is where it started. Thomas Warmath must have loved this son-in-law and trusted him implicitly. I believe he made him his executor in his will. He was the son of William Lawson Shumate and Sally Caroline Felts. Note that Henry Hilliard Warmath and Elizabeth Fly named one of their sons for him."

1840 census Davidson County TN, District 5 shows Julius JDR Shumate as the head of a household consisting of one male 20-30 (himself, presumably) and one female 20-30 (Mary presumably) and one female under five. They also have one male and one female slave 24-35 years old. The members of the house are also listed as employed in agriculture. They are on the same page as Mary's father, Thomas Warmath Sr, and her sister's husband, John Baker and a William Warmath, whose relationship I am not sure of.
