Subject: Shackelford connection, but where?

Hi Patricia, I did send a msg once before, but didn't have a lot of info with me since I was at work. I don't know if my SHACKELFORDS landed in your county or not, but they sure have provided me with lots of entertainment. This is my biggest mystery!! My Shackelford is as follows:

Lincoln Co., KY Records, (and CD) list the following marriages:

Aug 8 1845, Samuel SHACKELFORD to Lucy HICKMAN

Oct 27, 1825, John M. Shackelford to Amelia Hickman

Jan 17, 1798, Samuel SHACKELFORD to Suckey WITHERS

Oct 12, 1786, James SHACKELFORD to Sarah HIATT

Dec 16, 1799, John SHACKELFORD, to Polly LAWRENCE

I have also found a record of a Samuel SHACKELFORD, m to Amelia ______

NOW, my questions are: Are Samuel & John related? I have found various records of Sam & John, but no evidence they are the correct people. How many Samuel's are there? If you have a Samuel, please contact me with info so I can try to sort them out? I know that Lucy HICKMAN SHACKELFORD came to CA on wagon train with John SHACKELFORD & Amelia.

Did Samuel die, marry someone else? Who are parents of Samuel? Was John m to Polly LAWRENCE 1st, with Samuel as child? Is the Samuel m. to Suckey WITHERS same man?
