Tee, I don't remember if I sent this information to you: I was researching my Ritter family, and there is an LDS microfilm of the DB Ritter Bible and other Kentucky records. The order number is 0007850. There were 2 marriage records for Shackelfords on there, Roger Shackelford Jr. married Elizabeth Stewart 4/1/1796 in Madison Co. Kentucky, and William Shackelford married Betsy Moore, March 13, 1794. Hope this is new and interesting. Barbara

Hi, Tee, So are we interested in whether Roger is our ancestor. I need to study the information from Charles D. and Sarah T. more closely! I don't see the connection in the information I have here. I am not reading it carefully enough.

Let me know how they have connected these folks. I need to see their sources to understand. Dates, birth places, marriage places, etc. Otherwise they are just names to me. I thought Roger's family was in Kentucky after the Revolutionary War, and no one from our line went there that we know of.

Patricia probably has a better understanding of this. I've been so heavily into my mother's family history I haven't really been working closely on Shackelford. Just stored the e-mail messages for later. Will try to get back to them over the weekend. Thank you for all your work.

Hi there, I remember John Shackelford! He looked like the picture we have of Robert Carter Shackelford, in fact. But John told me he was not related to RC, that his was a different branch of the Shackelford family. He was a nice old gentleman with a white beard and hair. I met him at the Senior Center before he passed away. He was interested in writing his memoirs. His wife was with him, and she must still live in town. I'll check at the Senior Center to see if she still comes in. It has been about 8 years since I met them. Here are some Shackelford addresses from the Yuba City phone book if anyone wants to write to them:

JC Shackelford (I'm pretty sure this is where John's wife lives) 1475 Geary Circle, Yuba City, CA 95993

Other names:

John S. and Wilma M.  870 Pacific Avenue, Rio Oso, CA (don't know the zip--959xx) 

Ron Shackelford     920 Virginia Ave. Marysville, CA 95901

Billy and Rose Shackleford    11306 Hill Rd., Marysville, CA 95901

Wylie Shackleford   8560 Main Street, Smartville, CA (don't know the zip--959xx)

Just up the road in Paradise:

Genevieve and Harlan Shackelford     1081 Sierra Avenue, Thermolito, CA

J and S Shackelford    6477 Pentz Road, Paradise, CA

Dennis Shackleford       2917 Second St., Biggs, CA

Hope this helps. Barbara
