Looking for information on Shackelfords in Missiouri. My family are descendants of Everett L. Shackelford b. 1860 in Missouri. The 1860 censusindicate his father is Sidney (or Sydney) Shackelford b. apx 1832; his mother Lucie Shackelford b. apx 1836. Both parents were born in Missiouri. The 1880 census shows a new wife (Flora) with additional children, Grace age 13 and Sidney 4 months.

In the 1850 census, Sidney (Sydney) age 19 and possibly a sister Madina (sp?) Shackelford age 15 are listed with another family. This family is W.F. Dunnica; his wife Martha J. and 5 children ranging from age 12 to age 2.

From the ages of the children, it is possible that Martha J. is the mother of Sidney and Madina. An index for Missouri marriages show a William F. Dunica married a Martha J. Shackelford on December 11, 1836 in Saline Co. Mo.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!!!
