My grandfather was Hubert Otis Shackelford. He was born in Metz, WV (close to Fairmont) He had two brothers; Alva Clark & William and a sister, Mona.

He was married to a Sara Williams from a small town down around Charleston.

He retired from the B&O Railroad. Sara worked for Westinghouse in Fairmont for several years. They divorced before I was born. They both lived on farms in Fairview, WV when I was growing up. They both passed away in the early seventies.

They had three sons: Harley, Herman and Ashford (my father) and one daughter Edna (all deceased). My father died in February '63 at the VA Hospital in Clarksburg, he was only 49. My mother (Luamy Katherine Tennant) passed away in November of '80.

I have two brothers: Ronnie and Greg both presently living in Barrackville, WV.

I visit the Shackelford Forum website often but haven't made any connections so far.

I live in St Petersburg and haven't been up 95 since last Christmas.

Thanks for the response. let me know if this info is any help.
