LOST TRIBES

It appears that in every branch of any family there are a few that just seem to vanish. Whether by accident or by choice we have never been able to determine, but they seem to pull a fast disappearing act, and from then on no one seems to know what eventually became of them, and few seem to care.

And so it is with several of the descendants of Roger and Nancy Ann Carter-Shackelford. In the last few numbers of the magazine we have been discussing the descendants of Roger and Nancy Ann, and in your October magazine, page 6, we promised you that this month we would continue and conclude the discussion of their descendants. But we may have to retract part of that statement. But we will continue now and give you as much of the records as we can, or as much as we deem necessary at this time.

You will see that we have many records, but also that in order to make the record complete we need many more.

In previous numbers of the magazine we gave you records as we have them, of all the families of the sons and daughters of Roger and Nancy Ann, except the son Carter and the daughter Adeline. We therefore begin their records now, what we have of them.

One Carter Shackelford, said to have been the son of Roger and Nancy Ann, married in Franklin County, Ky., marriage bond dated January 4, 1802, when he

2 (1102)

secured license to marry Susan Briscoe. But so far as we have been able to find, that marriage record is the only time his name ever appears on an official document of any kind, unless mentioned in connection with some one else.

That Carter and Susan Briscoe-Shackelford had at least five children is indicated by the following records.

James Briscoe died in Franklin County, Ky., and left a Will wherein he mentioned among several legatees, the following: Polly Brydon, James, Thomas J., Briscoe, and Carter Shackelford. He did not mention the relationship, but we feel sure that it is safe to assume that all five of them were his grand children.

The Will of James Briscoe was dated April 18, 1848, and probated December 1853. Recorded in Will Book 2, page 245, Franklin County, Kentucky.

We find the following marriages in Franklin Co., Kentucky:

James Shackelford married Harriet Martin, daughter of James Martin, bond dated February 18, 1826.

John Bryden married Mary Shackelford, daughter of Carter Shackelford, bond dated May 25, 1831.

One Thomas J. Shackelford married Anne E. Howe, bond dated January 2, 1866.

John Sill married Eliza Shackelford, bond dated May 31, 1832.

James Shackelford and his wife Harriet (Martin), owned land in Franklin County, but in 1850 they were living in Scott County, and had seven children, as follows: Susan, born 1827; Elizabeth, born 1829; James T., born 1831; Robert, born 1833; Luther, born 1835; Richard, born 1837; John, born 1839. We are not certain that this James was a son of Carter, but as Carter married in 1802, and this James married in 1826, it is entirely possible that he could have been.

Mary Shackelford that married John Bryden, was a daughter of Carter, and no doubt is the Polly Bryden mentioned in the Will of James Briscoe.

We will be forever grateful for anything additional on this Carter Shackelford family, from any person or souce.

The next and last child of Roger and Nancy Ann Carter-Shackelford, was the daughter Adeline. However, the late Mrs Ann Carver-Graves, of Nashville, Tenn., thinks there was a son younger than Adeline, and that his name was James.

One James Shackelford married Polly Hollowell, in Sumner County, Tenn., in 1822. That we know. And Mrs Graves thought this was a younger brother of Adeline, daughter of Roger and Nancy Ann Carter. But we have no proof of this, nor do we know what became of James and Polly Hollowell-Shackelford.

Adeline, youngest daughter of Roger and Nancy Ann Carter-Shackelford, married Frederick Binkley. And the Binkleys appear to be one of the most prolific families that we have found in any branch of the family, but prolific in more ways than one, as they have produced many prominent men and women who have made their mark in all walks of life. Good solid substantial citizens - all of them.

Our records show that Frederick Binkley was a son of John and Johanna Leedy-Binkley, that he was born in Stokes County, N. C., February 12, 1774. And he died at Hermitage, near Nashville, Tenn., September 18, 1857. He was married to Adeline Shackelford, youngest daughter of Roger and Nancy Ann Carter-Shackelford, December 24, 1804, in Davidson County, Tennessee. Adeline Shackelford was born in Virginia, probably Ablemarle County, May 17, 1789. She died at Hermitage, Tenn., September 15, 1868. They had fourteen children, as follows:

Henry John-------------(m 1st Nancy Emeline Gleaves, m 2nd Nancy Mills)

William Blackman------(m Cornelia Emeline Wilson)

John Henry-------------(m Mary Walker)

Joseph Shackelford-----(m 1st Martha B. Steele, m 2nd Mrs Elizabeth Holland)

Franklin Carter---------(m Indiana ??)

(continued on next page)

Robert Foster-----------(m Isabella Steele)

Martin David------------(m Emma Caskey)

Sarah (Sally)------------(m Alfred Bass)

Andrew-----------------(died in childhood)

Thus it will be seen that of the fourteen children of Frederick and Adeline Shackelford-Binkley, thirteen of them lived to maturity, married and reared families of their own.

It will also be noted that they had two sons by the name of Joseph - Joseph Shackelford and Joseph Newton. They also had a son named Henry John and another named John Henry. So evidently they were very fond of the names John, Henry, and Joseph.

Henry John Binkley, eldest child and eldest son of Frederick and Adeline Shackelford-Binkley, was born at Hermitage, Davidson County, Tenn., February 10, 1806. He died in Dickson County, Tenn., February 21, 1887. He was twice married, his first wife being Nancy Emeline Gleaves, whom he married July 8, 1828.

We have very little information of the family of William Blackman Binkley, but our records do show that he was the second child and second son of Frederick and Adeline Shackelford-Binkley, and that he was born at Hermitage, Davidson County, Tennessee, May 11, 1808; and our records show that he lived and died in Tennessee, date of his death being in September 1892.
