I would like to enroll in your Shackelford research group.

My earliest proven ancestor is Soloman Shackelford. The first record I have is on 5 Dec. 1797 when Soloman signed a marriage bond with Sealah Shackelford for Sealah's marriage to Frances Harden. She is the daughter of Hall Harden. All of Fauquier Co. VA.

In the 1800 census, Soloman was counted as living at Daniel Allen's and was listed as 21 of age or over, on Fauquier's tax list.

On the 26th of Aug 1800, Soloman signed his marriage bond for his marriage with Clary (Clarissa) Hefferlin. She was the daughter of John Heflin and Elizabeth Horton of Fauquier Co. VA.

Soloman is in the Fauquier's Co 1810 Census.

In 1814 he was in the 6th Reg. Va. Militia, Commanded by Capt. John C. Edrington from the 45 Reg., from Stafford County Virginia.

Soloman is in the Stafford Co. Va. Census in 1820 & 1830. The 1830 Census shows Him as 50 ­ 60 years old. He is not in Stafford or Fauquier's 1840 Census.
