In Reply to: Shelnutts - Haralson Co GA by Deb Ashmore of 177

The 1860 Haralson Co. Census shows:
Name Relation Age BP FBP MBP
Thomas Shelnut H 44 NC
Jane W 36 NC
Louisa D 15 GA
John P. S 14 GA
William A. S 12 GA
Mary J. D 10 GA
Sarah M. D. 8 GA
Joseph L. S 6 GA
James W. S 1 GA

John Shelnut H 60 SC
Etna (Ednay) W 49 GA
Amanda D 25 GA
Nancy E. D 20 GA
James H. S 17 GA
Mary D 16 GA
Rebecca D 14 GA
Silvester C. S 6 GA

John Shelnut H 26 NC
Emily W 23 GA
Thomas S 3 GA
Sarah G. D 9 mo. GA

My assumption (and only an assumption) is that John is a son of John Sr and possibly a brother to Thomas if Ednay is a second wife or Thomas is a brother to John Sr.

I would like to know the relationship as Thomas is my line.

The 1870 Haralson Co. Census shows:
Name Relation AGE BP FBP MBP
Thomas Shelnut H 52 NC
Jane W 47 NC
Joseph S 15 GA
Wiley S 11 GA
Frances D 5 GA
William S 4 GA
Ednay D 4 mo. GA

John Shelnut H 71 SC
Edny W 60 GA
Nancy D 19 GA
Amanda Shelnutt D 1 GA
John Shelnutt S 6 GA
Martha Shelnutt D 3 GA

James Shelnutt H 26 GA
Sarah W 35 GA
John S 4 GA
George S 1 GA
Martha D 5 GA

John Shelnutt H 39 GA
Lovely W 35 GA
Margaret D 9 GA
Sarah D 10 GA
William S 14 GA

My thinking on these families is James is the son of John Sr. John is the son of John Sr. also shown in the 1860 census.

**Note I have found in research that family members do not always age by 9-11 years when the census is taken 10 year later.

1880 Haralson Co. census:
Name Relation Age BP FBP MBP
Thomas Shelnut H 63 NC SC NC
Jane W 53 NC NC NC
Frances D 16 GA NC NC
William W. S 13 GA NC NC
Ela D 9 GA NC NC

Joseph Shelnut H 27 GA NC NC
Manda R. W 26 GA GA GA
Susan J. D 4 GA GA GA
Manda R. D 2 GA GA GA
Thomas A. S 4 mo. GA GA GA

James H. Shelnut H 37 GA SC SC
Sarah W 47 GA SC SC
Josaphine D 15 GA GA Ga
John H. S 13 GA Ga GA
George A. S 11 GA GA GA
Charley S 9 GA GA GA
Sarah D 7 GA GA GA

William Shelnut H 24 GA GA GA
Malissa W 18 GA GA GA
Cora D. D. 2 GA GA GA
Eula E. D. 9 mo. GA GA GA

John Shelnut H. 49 NC GA GA
Emily W 45 GA GA GA
Margaret D 18 GA GA GA
Jalues S 15 GA GA GA
Martha D 13 GA GA GA
Amanda D 11 GA GA GA
Susan D 9 GA GA GA
Joseph S 6 GA GA GA

Note do not find John Shelnut Sr. and spouse Ednay.

I believe Joseph Shelnut is probably the son of Thomas and Jane Shelnut.

I believe William is the son of John Shelnut Jr. and Lovely.

I believe James H. Shelnut is the son of John Shelnut Sr.

I believe John Shelnut is the son of John Sr.

Am interested in exchanging information on this family.
