I found this info on James B. Shockey in the 1870 census of Tunbridge Township, DeWitt Co., Illinois:
Shockey, Jas. B. 79 Male Farmer $800 $1090 Virginia
Sarah A. 59 Female Keeping House Kentucky
Marshal M. 17 Male Working Farm Kentucky
Priscilla E. 15 Female At Home Indiana
Lorenzo W. 12 Male At Home Kentucky

Our family tradition states that James B. was married twice, first to Nancy Ross, second to Sarah A. (Sallie). He is said to have had 22 children. We have some information on him from the Shockey History & Genealogy (2 vol. set) by Ralph N. and Marie F. Shockey and additional info from censuses (1850 Fleming Co., Kentucky p. 295)and family documents.
