INTRODUCTION

Several years have now passed since my brother Donnie and I started our search for family ancestors and descendants. Though it has, at times, been both difficult and time consuming; it has been also rewarding and helpful to many others who are also researching some of our connected families.
This all began from a conversation that Donnie and I had about our ancestors. It didn’t take long for us to see that we knew very little and had trusted heavily in rumors and hear say. We, as so many, had thought we had ancestry in some Native American tribe. Sadly, I have to say; I have seen no evidence that supports that rumor that had been in family circles for years. There is no doubt that we are descendants of the European countries.
I, along with a brother and sister of the same age, (yes I’m a triplet) was raised in a small southern Alabama town to parents that were well along in their years. For that reason, we never knew but one of my grandparents, that being Amanda Lavada Harvill-Dean, on my mother’s side. My grandmother Mary Nichols-Shackelford died the year after I was born. The remainder died many years before my birth in 1952. So who were these people and where did they come from? The journey began.
When Donnie and I started researching, we both worked on the Shackleford/ Shackelford ancestry. Due to our distance apart, he living in South Florida and me in North Georgia, we quickly realized that a lot of our research was in duplication. We split it up. He has been working on the Shackleford/Shackelford lines and I have been working on the Nichols line. This has quickly expanding to include many more family lines and will continue to do so.
The choice that I made was based in part to research that had been compiled by Thomas Heflin Compton in the 1970s. Having no knowledge of genealogy left me in the cold when it came to getting started. His research became my launching pad. Thomas used the research of Joe Russell Nichols of Timpson, Texas, gathered in the 1930s. Thomas expanded the research of Joe and I, in a similar way, have taken up the torch. Donnie, on the other hand, used as reference the “Shackelford Clan Magazine”, a research of T. K. Jones in the 1940s and 50s. The researches of Thomas and T. K. have been instrumental in the research of the Shackelford/Shackleford and Nichols lines.
Added in September 2001 were the Descendants of John Wellmaker, Sr. I am related to the Wellmaker Family through the marriage of my great great grandparents, Joel Lafayette Nichols and Susan Elizabeth Wellmaker. Many people shared information on this line, too many to name. I would like to thank them all. A special thanks goes to Gary Wellmaker and Saundra Busto. Much of this information was found in the “Wellmaker Family” by T. H. Compton.
The Descendants of William Barrington has been our latest effort. This too would have been impossible without the contributions made by some very generous people. I would especially like to express my gratitude to Carl Coe, Linda Czarny, and Steve Etheridge. Steve is my first cousin who has been heavily involved with genealogy for many years.
For information on the Shackleford/Shackelford families, please make your request to Donnie Shackleford. He can be contacted at: doncon402@yahoo.com
If anyone has any information to submit to this web page, please send it to me, Kendrick Shackleford, at:
KennyShackleford@aol.com
I would like to dedicate my research to the memory of my son, CHRISTOPHER LANE SHACKLEFORD, who was killed July 29, 2000, in Marietta, Georgia, by a drunk driver. Please visit the link I've added in his memory. Adding my son’s name as deceased was very difficult to say the least. It should have been him adding my name.

NOTICE: Due to unwanted information being sent to my Guest Book I have decided to close it out. Anyone who wishes a link please email me.
