Re: shackelford names & Shakespeare
In Response To: shackelford names ()

I am researching the Shakespeare surname in Caroline County, VA. Sancho Shakespeare (born 1799) and his wife Lucinda had the following children:
- Eliza (born about 1832)
- Richmond (born about 1834)
- Louisa (born 1835)
- Nancy (born about 1836)
- Matilda (born about 1838, married Dingo Rollins and died June 27, 1882)
- Beverly (male) (born about 1840 Died 1876)
- John (born about 1842)
- Martha (Born about 1847)

Several of these indivuals are living together in the 1870 census. However, their surname is Shackelford. I recall sometime in the past when I was looking up the Shakespeare surname in an index there was a note that said, "see also Shackelford". However, I can't remember where I saw this.

Does anyone know of a relationship between the Shakespeare and Shackelford surname?
