Bio and Links
Bio Photo A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
In loving memory of my family and friends.

I'm a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My gggg-grandfathers John Shacklett FAG #45092203, Richard Ashcraft FAG #96952717, Joseph Newton Fox FAG #47960698, Thomas Thomas FAG #56840518, and John Wimp FAG #30181373, served in the Revolutionary War. John Shacklett served as a Private in Captain Nicholas Shinn's Company of Rangers. Richard Ashcraft served as an Indian scout in western Pennsylvania along the Monongahela River serving in Captain Bazil Bowell's Company. Joseph Fox served as a private in the 11th VA Regiment of the Continental Army under Captain David Steel. He spent the winter of 1777-1778 at Valley Forge. For his service he received 336 acres of land in Perry Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania, patent 15, January 15, 1814. He chose a grassy knoll on his property as his final resting place. Thomas Thomas served as a Pvt. Maryland, 3rd Regiment Maryland Line. John Wimp served as a sergeant in Captain James Floyd's Company of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania Militia, commanded by Colonel William Chambers. John Wimp was a Mason and frequently spoke of having met General Washington in the Masonic lodge at Fairfax.

I have to laugh every time I see this quote from members who have THOUSANDS of entries on FAG: "Transfers will be made according to FAG guidelines, direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents." One man who loves to quote this has over 356,000 entries and he states that 99.99% are not related to him. He enters thousands of people who are not related to him, but makes a family member follow the direct relative four generation rule. I just can't see the logic in that.

Daniel Hayden Shacklett
Greetings! I'm also a descendent of Daniel Shacklett, through my maternal grandmother Beatrice Shacklett.

In researching info on Daniel Hayden Shacklett, he only place I see he was born in Indiana is here. Records I find show his parents married in Indiana, but all of his siblings, including his next younger and older ones, were born in Meade Kentucky, and all of the census reports etc. say he was born in Kentucky. Of course, those can be wrong!

Can you tell me if it is certain he was born in Indiana and what the source is, so I can cite it? Or is it possibly in error?

Would so appreciate it!

Thank you!

James Weaver Shacklette
Let me know if you want to take over management of James Weaver Hatfield buried in Hardin County. I had a devil of a time finding info on this man. I put in the effort because I admire the work he did in starting WTCO. My grandfather managed the station for nearly 20 years after Mr. Shacklette passed away, eventually becoming president. WTCO, as well as Mr. Shacklette's two other stations are still going strong; his legacy lives on. If you take over management of his Find A Grave site please try to add something about his wife Viola as well as any of his children who may have passed away.

William Howell Sr.
Is his middle name spelled Claiborne or Clayborn? It is spelled Clayborn on the headstone.

RE: St. Clare Cem Colesburg
I photographed all of Patterson Chapel headstones two years ago. If there is no headstone picture on Find A Grave, then there probably is not a headstone there, or not a readable one.

RE: Colesburg Cemetey
Yes. I seemed to remember reading about it, and surprisingly I remembered the name - St. Clair. I looked in Find A Grave. No St Clair. Bummer.

But I know there was one there. So I did a Google search and, viola! It is ST. CLARE, and it is in Find A Grave. 600+ burials. Hope that helps.
