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 Gardiner FAG # 174663916, Thomas Thomas FAG #56840518, Thomas Johnson FAG # 15519989, John Howlett FAG # 154414045, 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 Gardiner was a sailor on the ship "Defense" from 5/22/1777 - 7/7/1777 ("Archives of Maryland"). Thomas Thomas served as a Pvt. 3rd Regiment Maryland Line. Thomas Johnson served in a Frederick County, MD. volunteer company of Associators. John Howlett served as a Private in the 1st, 3rd. and 7th Regts. under Captains. Beatty, Price, and Beall. John Wimp served as 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 346,000 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.

RE: Shacklette farm sold
She is in the 1900 Meade County Census but not 1910 census. So she either died or got married between 1900 and 1910, but I haven't found anything yet.

Thank-you so much I appreciate it very much.
I have to say I found the last sentence contributor profile seemingly humorous with Contributor's on here with over thousand's of
memorials. I had one tell me they couldn't transfer because they had been adopted I haven't read the guideline on that on yet.
Any whoo thank-you

Thanks for your message for it's always good to double check these dates. I agree her headstone appears to read 1858, so I double checked the 1900 census and it also gives 1856.

Have incl. her as the spouse of Arland J. Moore #39616760. Why is it not showing her "married name" of Moore on her tombestone?

Do you have anything on a son of John's by the name of Jesse. I can find him from the 1950 to 1970 Census. He had two daughters, Willie Catherine and Annie B. In Annie's obituary is had here parents died when she was young, in 1880 census she was living with grandpa John. In the Meade County Births Vol I it has that Annie D. Smith was Jesse wife, after that can't find anything.

I got that turned around. Mary Dowell was born in Los Angeles, in think in 1854. They were heading back to Texas from California when the coyote incident occurred.
