The time and location are similar to my Great Grandfather, Joseph Shackleton (later spelled Shackelton as is mine). Joseph was born October 8, 1838 in Skipton in Craven, Yorkshire. This is very near Bradford as I have been there. His father was Peter Shackleton born around 1800 somewhere in England. He died in 1841 in Skipton. Joseph was married to Susannah Barrett born around 1802 died around 1842. Joseph was married to Jessie A. McCulloch, born 1838 in Glasgow and died 1895 in Herkimer, NY. Joseph died July 4, 1923 in Herkimer, NY. Do you know John Shackleton's parents names? Perhaps John and Joseph are siblings. Oswego NY is not that far (150 miles?) from Herkimer.
