I am new to this list and am posting my interests at this time.

John SHACKELFORD was born 1777 and died 16 Jun 1855. He married Nancy CLARK. Information was provided by a relative, but she did not provide places.

John and Nancy had a sam named Samuel SHACKELFORD. Samuel was born in 1810 in VA and died 3 Dec 1892 in Winfield Dist, Marion Co, WV. He married on 24 Dec 1836 in Monongalia Co, VA to Sophia KNOX, daughter of Purnel Knox and Mary Henry.

Samuel and Sophia had a son named Charles Haymond SHACKELFORD. Haymond was born 16 Feb 1849 in Monongalia Co, VA and died 12 Oct 1919 in Marion Co, WV.

He married on 29 Dec 1870 in Marion Co, WV, to Clamenza Olive SWISHER, daughter of Alpheus Swisher and Abigail VanGilder.

Haymond and Minnie had a daughter named Rosa Leah SHACKELFORD. Rosa was born 1 Mar 1871 in Marion Co, WV and died 5 Oct 1942 in Mannington, Marion Co, WV. She married 1 Jan 1895 in Marion Co, WV to Rawley Holland JOLLIFFE, son of Fleming Jolliffe and Louisa Cox.

Rosa and Rawley had a son named Harry Earl JOLLIFFE (my grandfather). He was born 18 Jun 1904 and died 7 Oct 1970. He married 23 Dec 1925 to Inez Maxine BARKER, daughter of Lewis Barker and Lydia Anna Shuman.

Would like to hear from anyone associated with any of this line.

(Notes from Patricia Viellenave on Charles Haymond Shackelford)

Listed in the Marion Co., WV., Genealogy Gleanings, March 1985, Vol. X, No. 1, page: 13, 1870 Marriages for Marion Co., WV, they have the following listed:

December 29, 1870

Haymond Shackelford 21 yrs. b: Monongalia Co., VA/WV, s/o George and Elizabeth

Clamonza Swisher 19 yrs. b: Marion Co., VA/WV, d/o Lander & Charlotte

Wes Cochran in his Marion Co., VA/WV 1842-1899, page 89 has Haymonds parents as Samuel and Sophia.

Which is correct?? What source is being used to document Haymonds parents???
