  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Ref: the Shackelford Quarterly, Vol 4, Oct 1996, p 276.
      The first Shackleford family to arrive in Miller County, MO was the widow of Merlin aka Murrell Shackleford, son of William and Elizabeth (Betsy) Moore Shackleford, and their children. Merlin died prior to 1840 (sic) and is buried in Barren Co., KY near Louisville. (Since youngest son, Allen, was born 1841, Merlin could not have died before 1840. He is also listed on the 1840 Federal Census Barren Co., KY. SD)

      BIOGRAPHY: Merlin's widow was Sarah (Sally) Bailey Anderson Shackleford, listed in the 1860 Miller Co. census, along with her children. Sarah died April 4, 1875 in Miller Co. and is buried at the Livingston Cemetery near Iberia.

      Note: Edmonson County, KY was created in 1825 from portions of Warren, Hart and Grayson Counties. Also note that an Allen Hunter (age 40 or less) was living in Hart Co., KY per the 1830 Federal Census with wife and 7 children. And Allen Hunter was the name of the husband of Rhoda Anderson, daughter of Meredith Anderson. Rhoda's sister, Lucinda Anderson, married Julius C. Bailey. Merlin Shackleford's wife was Sarah Bailey, sister of Julius C. Bailey. Ok, so the family connections get a little complicated -- but they were all living in the same area at or near the same time.
