I have been looking at the Shockey family because an Abram Shockey sold or transferred land in Berkeley Co. VA [now Morgan Co. WVA] to my family's potential ancestor, Peter Harbourt in 1794. This is in the Library of VA, Northern Neck Land Grants. The property is on "the drains of Sleepy Creek. There is now a Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management area in Morgan Co WVA. Peter had a son Peter Jr. who married Catherine ? of German descent. This Abram Shockey may be related to your James B. - perhaps a father or uncle. I was thinking Catherine may have been a Shockey - any further information on this would be appreciated.
