Diane Shackleford Small Collection
|A note from the Contributor|
My name is Diane Shackleford Small. I have had relatives in Jefferson County and surrounds from about 1774 until 1882. I am a direct descendent of William Ferguson and Paulina Burch Ferguson (Mt. Locust). Their daughter Philadelphia Ferguson married Edmund Shackleford. Edmund and Philadelphia had several sons including Judge George "Wash" Shackleford who appears with his wife Josephine Cotton (her step-father was H. B. Coker--battle of Champion Hill) in the Susan Sillers diaries. So the reason for this is I have been in touch with Rick Chamberlain at Mt. Locust and he sent me some really old pictures which were in the possession of either Paulina Burch Ferguson Chamberlain or Philadelphia Shackleford. Most are unidentified but there is probably some association with either the Cotton, Shackleford, Ferguson, Chamberlain families. A couple have labels which offer a clue but otherwise nothing.
