  • Notes 
    • George Dabney Shackelford was born to William and Judith (Dabney) Shackelford about 1777-80 in King and Queen County, Virginia.
      He married first to Ann Rowe (or Roane) of Gloucester County about 1804 and second to Martha (Patsy) Lewis October 13, 1817. In the 1810 and 1820 censuses, he had about eight children
      In 1810, after his mother Judith’s death, he was listed in the King and Queen County tax rolls with 576 acres until 1822, when his entry changed to George Shackelford’s estate, indicating his death.




      In 1820, he was charged with 576 acres in K&Q Co. Adjacent were 133 1/4 acres that were part of George Dabney Shackelford’s father, William’s estate, that later were held by George Dillard (husband of Judith Dabney’s sister Ann?).

      Rootsweb WorldConnect Project said he was b. abt 1785 in Stratton Major Parish, m. Ann Roane. Ch. Maria Ann, Martha Ellen, Judith Dabney, Anthony G. Maria Ann m. Thomas Corr 27 May 1809 in KWC. Martha Ellen m. George Dabney Dillard, Judith Dabney Shackelford m. William A. Backhouse,

      1810 census, King & Queen, VA, George D. Shackelford, M 1 0-9, 1 16-25, 1 26-44; F 3 0-9, 1 26-44, 1 45+; 17 slaves
      1820 census, St. Stephens, King and Queen, VA, George D. Shackelford, M 1 10-15, 1 45+; F 4 0-9, 1 10-15, 1 16-25, 1 26-44, 1 45+; 31 slaves.
      (Other Shackelfords in K&Q Co. in 1820: Alexander, 45+, 0 slaves; Dianna, 16-25, 4 slaves; James, 45+, 5 slaves; Leonard, 45+, 3 slaves; Mary, 26-44, 0 slaves; Rebecca, 45+, 19 slaves; Taliaferro, 16-25, 1 slave.)
      (No Shackelfords in K&Q Co. in 1830. James might be James B., 60-69, in Henry Co., KY)

      King and Queen County records concerning 18th century persons, 7th collection v. 27, p. 50, 13 Oct 1817, George D. Shackelford to Martha C. Lewis, dau. of Iverson Lewis.

      In King & Queen land tax lists, listed 1810-1818 (haven’t seen later records)

      Malcolm Harris says George Dillard married Ann Shackelford on p. 321, but on p. 316-317 says he married Judith Dabney Shackelford’s sister Ann and on p. 319 says George Dilliard married Ann Dabney, daughter of George Dabney and his wife Judith Dabney (wrong! should be Ann Anderson) Harris appears confused here. I should look for other info. on Dillards & Ann Shackelford, dau. of Judith Dabney Shackelford. [1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
