John Gilbert Ross Shacklette

Return to Stith Valley front page.

Aunt Harriet is pretty sure that John Ross Shacklette is one and the same as John Gilbert Shacklette. Perhaps he had two middle names John Gilbert Ross Shacklette. Note the birth year is about right 1855 vs 1854 and both show as married to Sallie Dudley.

Best regards,

Here's John Gilbert/Ross & Sarah (Sallie) Magdeline Dudley info that I know to be correct/accurate from documentation; They married in McLean County 7/30/1879 Sallie is the daughter of Samuel B. Dudley & Lydia A. Hitch/Fitch (I have Samuel & Lydia's original marriage certificate 4-13-1854 New Albany, IN- it's disintigrating, but mostly readable. Amazing for being 146 years old!) Sallie's dates are 1861 (Sacramento/McLean/KY) - 1933 (Seattle/King/WA) John's exact birthdate is still in question, but for sure is Brandenburg/Meade/KY - his death is 1-25-1916 Sacramento/McLean/KY I have all of their children and birthdates listed on a piece of paper that was handed down with other family stuff, the age of the paper and the writing style lead me to believe that Sallie wrote it. Unfortunately the boys are only listed by initials, so I don't know proper names for 2 of them yet. John & Sallie's children are;
C.P. (Cecil P.) born 4-25-1880
Lois born 1-23-1882
S.B. (?) born 4-11-1884
B.B. (?) born 6-3-1886
B.L. (Byron L.) born 12-8-1887
Grase (Grace) born 7-11-1891
Burnice (Bernice/Burnis?) born 4-20-1894
Josie (Josephine Jesse) born 11-11-1896
Luava (Loueva) born 8-8-1899
Sue Martin born 12-1-1902
Lidie A. (Lydia?) 4-28-1906

I do have some marriage/children info for the siblings who came to Seattle, but I'll give that all to you when I get a complete picture. Who I'd really like to find are the decendants of the siblings who DIDN'T come to Seattle. I'm sure that some of them are in KY somewhere.
