Hello fellow Shackelford hunters. I just joined the group and wanted to introduce myself. I have noticed several other postings on my lines brothers and sisters. Thought this might help some of the others out there. I have copies of bible records, old family letters, etc. Willing to share with those of my line. Please feel free to discuss or correct me. Hope you enjoy.

Let me describe the records from which my information comes from. I have copies of letters from the 1940-50s where my gg aunt (Isabella Dean) was putting the family together. She wrote to Reverend ranklin Shackelford Moseley for conformation on her research. It appears that he authored a book or assisted in it's formation. In his own hand there are corrections and or further explanations on the line.

Roger Shackelford b. 1700 did marry for a second time. It was to Nancy Atkinson (my letters) and children were Julie, Josephine, Ardella, and Elizabeth. Others show Nancy's last name as Carter. I appear to have some problem with the notes of the 1798 ???? Will of Roger b. 1700. I will research further and update the group later.
