James P. Shackelford
born 11/05/1780 in Laurens Co, SC

This man caused much genealogical confusion! To begin with, he married his cousin Mary Ann Roberts, who had the same name as his mother. They had seven or eight children including their first son, Calvin Shackelford, who married his first cousin, Emily Cook. Then, when Mary Ann Roberts Shackelford died in 1820, James married Mary "Polly" Seaton the same year, and apparently fathered another family. He died after 1830 in Henderson Co, Tennessee.
