I am certain you are referring to Henrietta Maria Ross Shackelford, the
wife of Brig. General James Murrell Shackelford. James Murrell married his
first wife's younger sister "Hennie". His first wife's name was Marion
Ross. As you can see
by the family genreport below James m. and Henrietta had 3 children, one of
which was a
Margaret Shackelford. James M. and Marion had a son named William Ross.
As you probably know the family moved to Muskogee, Oklahoma Territory from
when James Murrell was appointed the first federal judge of Indian Territory
by the President.
I have much more info on this family as James Murrell was my g-g grandfather
younger bother by one year. Would be glad to trade information on these
lines. My mother Nina Ruth Waack (DAR) would also
definitely be interested in
the papers you speak of. I have copies of J. M. Shackelfords Pension Papers
that my mom sent me
- they were filed by Henrietta
Matthew Waack ( )
