I spent some time looking through that info I recieved from you and found the very people I was looking for. It is my first big success, Thanks to you. Ella Mae

I was looking through my things and found that the first information I sent you was from the Family History Center LDS Church. I go there often they have a lot of good "stuff" but it is sent in by a lot of people and sometime people from the same family do not have the same information. I'm going to have to look a little closer at this because I downloaded this family on my computor and now I see it is not the same as out of my books. I am just getting started but have a lot to look through and a lot to learn and so much to tie together.

Please be patient with me. Ella Mae

Pat, I don't know where that information came from on John Shackleford. All charts from ROGER SHACKLEFORD back to the the first one, was researched and compiles by Edward Madison Shackleford & Franklin Shackleford Mosely. .Charts from ROGER SHACKLEFORD down to JOHN METCLAF SHACKLFORD, was compiled into what is called "THE SHACKLEFORD CLAN MAGAZINES" by W. L. Jones

These charts begin with BARON JACQUES le FORT, b. about 1036, A Nobleman of Nromandy, and an officer in the Army of WILLIAM The Conqueror in 1066 A.D. William gave him a land grant in England for his services.

The next Shackleford known is this line is: JOHN de SHACKLEFORD, b. c1300 A.D. Probably in England. Here is where the name was changed. He was Trustee to Richard Atte Wells, Surry Co., Eng.

The next Shackleford known in line was:

HENRY de SHACKLFORD, B. c 1375, in Surry Co., Eng. He was a Gentleman in Waiting to Henry V, between 1387 & 1422.

WILLIAM de SHACKLEFORD,b. c 1400 was pf "Shackleford Village, Godalming Parish, Surry Co., Eng.

WILLIAM de SHACKLEFORD, b. 1520, Surry Co., Eng. This William's family is the father of JOHN de SHACKLEFORD b. c 1556/60 in France. Is this the one you are looking for? His son is ROGER etc. does this help? Ella Mae

Pat, I will continue my own line of Shacklefords: It has been gotten from the "Sackleford Clan Magazine" and is the same at John Shackleford 1700 m. Ann Lyne, my ancestor is James B. Shackleford, their son William Stamms m. Sabina Metcalfe, their son is John Metcalfe Shackleford, m. Amelia Hickman, their daughter Amelia Jane Shackleford m. my g. grandfather Seth Worthington Hooker, their son Horace is my grandfather, m. Cassie Cooley, their son is Frank Hooker my father. I am Ella Mae Hooker Johns. The Hookers go back to Rev. Thomas Hooker of Hatford Conn.

Does this help? I have all the family group sheets. I want information on the Stamms family. Ella Mae
