My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
and I live in Elkins, West Virginia.
researching William Hiden Shifflett who married Eliza
Ann Roberts in Greene County, Virginia Dec. 20, 1860.
The marriage certificate shows William's mother as Artimpa
or Artimissa Shifflett. No father is listed.
have been told by other Shifflett researchers that William's
father was believed to be Leland Hardin Shifflett who went
by Leland Frazier who married Artemissa Shifflett. Leland
was married twice, the other marriage to America or Ann
Mallory. Both marriage certificates list Leland as Leland
Shifflett not Frazier.
Leland and Artemissa were married
in Greene County, VA in 1856 just 4 years earlier than
William and Eliza. Leland was still living in 1860 so why
wasn't he listed on Willliam's marriage certificate?
to prove who William Hiden Shifflett's parents were. This
is my "Brick Wall", can anyone help?
