John S Clayton m. Winney Jane Shellhouse 1855 Sangamon Co, IL
Posted by: Cheri Astrahan (ID *****3537) Date: February 12, 2010 at 12:54:29

I can't seem to find out what happened to Winney Jane Shellhouse, first cousin of my gggrandfather. She is the daughter of Willis Shellhouse and Sarah Easley. Willis is the son of Lewis Shellhouse and Lydia Ledbetter (first married to Daniel McDowell). THe Shellhouses first lived in White Co, TN that I can find and moved to Caldwell Co, KY and moved to Sangamon Co, IL in the 1830s. THere is a John S Clayton in Sangamon Co, IL but he was born about 1808 and was married to his first cousin Betsy/Elizabeth up at least through 1860, so he is not the John S Clayton I am looking for. Then there is the John S Clayton living in Deep Park, Lasalle Co, IL in 1850 who was born in 1838. This same John S Clayton is married to a Julia in 1870 still living in Deep Park, IL. It would seem that Winney must have married one of the Clayton Clan from Caldwell Co, KY. Her stepmother was Martha Patsy Nuckolls. THere were Clayton, Nuckolls, Easley marriages so someone must know the correct John Clayton that Winney married. I cannot find Winney in the 1860 census, but that doesn't mean anything without confirmation. Can anyone help?
