Notes for Calvin Shackelford
Calvin Shackelford is listed in the 1830 census of Elbert Co GA; M<5, M20-30; F20-30. Close to John Hathcock and Alfred Hathcock.


There is a problem with Calvin Shackelford. Not sure where the 9 Sept 1804 birth date originlly came from. But there is an Alabama marriage certificate for James Shackelford and Polly Seaton on 11 January 1820. But according to the foregoing census, Calvin must have beem born between 1800 and 1810. So I suppose it is possible James and Polly had a son 16 years before they actually married.
Notes for Emily (Spouse 1)
Emily's middle name was Shackelford, and her last name became Shackelford when she married her first cousin Calvin. She was left a widow with several children born in Alabama, and, in 1850, lived with or next door to her mother Margaret, age 73, who was married at that time to John Hathcock. Some of her children were recorded at Margaret's home. This was in Madison County, Alabama. In the 1860 census, Margaret had passed away, and Emily and three of her children were living together in Lincoln Co, Tennessee. She was 54 years old at that time and probably died soon afterward. There are some indications that she died in her middle years of dropsy.116
