of John Shackelford, baptized Old Alrosford, December 23, 1647, and his
son Roger who was baptized in Old Alresford, England , April 23rd, 1629.

Husband of Mary Sweeney was Tyre Slatton. Mary was a twin to Joseph. They were the firstborn of Moses and Elizabeth's. Listed on the Garrard County Tax list, next to Tyre, is a Joseph Slatton, married to Margaret Allen, sister of Sarah wife of Job, Mary's brother.
Husband of Nancy Sweeney, Goldsby Childers was born January 1, 1756. He served in the Revolutionary War under Captain William McKee in the 12th VA Regiment.
Sarah Allen's lines reach back to Robert Allen b. 1695 of Armagh VA
and his wife Sarah Cathey of Atrim, Ulster, Ireland: she the daughter of
Alexander Cathey. Sarah's mother was Margaret Green (Wahab).

compiled there in 1787. Patsy and Daniel are buried at the McCormack
