Emily's middle name was Shackelford, and her last name became Shackelford when she married her first cousin Calvin. She was left a widow with several children born in Alabama, and, in 1850,lived with or next door to her mother Margaret, age 73, who was married at that time to John Hathcock. Some of her children were recorded at Margaret's home. This was in Madison County, Alabama. In the 1860 census, Margaret had passed away, and Emily and three of her children were living together in Lincoln Co, Tennessee. She was 54 years old at that time and probably died soon afterward. There are some indications that she died in her middle years of dropsy.
