Hello Patricia, Regarding the family of Marie Shackelford Blackwell who will be 103 years old at the end of May 2000, having lived in three centuries:

If you would like to update the information I have about my mother-in-law Marie's Shackelfords, I believe I have connected them to the John Shackelford who is mentioned at the end in the last edition of the Shackelford Clan magazine in Apr. 1957, about pp. 1146-47. He married first Peggy Newby and then Betsy Brannin, our ancestor, who is mentioned in the newsletter as "widow of, name not shown, John Shackelford died December 28th, 1855".

A cousin and I are now sure of this line, but would welcome any additions and/or corrections to this data or lines. I also have the roster listing of John Larkin Shackelford (above) in the Civil War, if you would like to add him to your military listings.

I forgot to mention that it appears from our research that Robert Shackelford's son John Larkin married his cousin: Robert's sister Harriet Shackelford Brown's daughter, Ella Brown.
