SHELBYs we have yet to link

THIS IS A LARGE FILE, SO GIVE IT TIME TO LOAD -Click on 'EDIT' then click 'FIND IN PAGE'-type in the name you are looking for-

 Have still not been able to quite put my finger on these families..  My comments, as ALWAYS, in square brackets [ ] only:

Visit Heather's LANE web site-Its impressive:

1.  Isaac M SHELBY was born about 1817 in KY.   The 1850 Coahoma Co MS, Mortality Schedules, give Isaac's age as 33. He died in Aug 1850 in Coahoma Co, MS.

 He was married to Maria J DELANY on 21 Jul 1842 in Union Co, KY.   Marriage Records for This Co. Maria J DELANY died before 1850 in prob, Coahoma Co, MS.

Isaac M died of Cholera, at the age of 33, in  Aug 1850, according to the 1850 Coahoma Co, MS, Mortality Schedules- A. Gillis, publ 1973, p47. Isaac was also Sheriff of this Co in 1840.

Isaac is County Clerk 1837 & is witness this date for Malinda (BRADBURN) SHELBY's marriage contract to her 2nd husband, Jonathan THOMAS-
BK D p3 Chancery Clerk Office, Clarksdale, Coahoma Co MS- She gives land to son's Wm B, John, Aaron I.D. SHELBY in Belville, Hopkins Co KY.

This Isaac M does not appear to be her son, although right age; or nothing to indicate he's son of Rev Aaron SHELBY, son of Wm & Sarah. This Aaron was the minister for several DELANY\DELANEY marr's during the 1820's, in Union Co, KY.

In 1855 there is an Indenture for Thomas SHELBY [son of Wm & Sarah] betw the unknown SHELBY desc's & a DELANY\DELANEY family. Still trying to sort all of this out.

 William & Sarah are on the 1810 cencus Caldwell Co KY, show 6 son's- William names only 5 son's in his 1817 Will- Isaac M is not one of them. Have found nothing in the rec's to indicate Wm had a son Isaac-  So, who does Isaac M belong to??

THE SHELBY SEEKERS, Allied Families of Cannon, Clinton, Dodds, Love, Posey, and Stembridge, by Jonel Sharp Harmon and Mary Dalby Zinzilieta, publ Feb 1997, p13:
 Gives more in depth study to Moses, son of Wm & Sarah- The authors feel that records indicate Moses may have married twice-
 Moses m Polyxena THOMPSON, 1 Nov 1824, Union Co, KY. Ch- Letitia Susan; Amelia Catherine S; & Mary Jane SHELBY [these are documented]

Is this the same Moses?? If not, who is he??  makes no mention of his wife in his will dated 1832, probated Jan 1835 Union Co, IL- & said to be a duplicate of his will- "devises to my daughter America Aliva Delaney SHELBY, now a resident of the State of [other] 3 dau's-Katherine, Susannah, Mary Jane SHELBY.   signed by Moses.

Now, does the following fit in here somewhere????

Joseph LANE, 1st Territorial Gov of OR & his wife Polly, had a dau Mary Virgina LANE who m 3 Nov 1852 in Evansville, IN, to AARON DELANY SHELBY.
Aaron was b 7 Oct 1827 near Henderson Co, KY. Aaron died [according to Heather W BOWERS] in 1881 in Portland, Multnomah Co, OR.
May 9, 1997 LANE, John
Searching for the death date and place for John LANE and his wife Elizabeth STREET. John was the son of Jesse LANE and Winifred AYCOCK, he was born in NC abt. 1768 and md. Elizabeth STREET daughter of Col. James STREET in 1798 in NC. They left NC and went to Henderson Co., KY abt. 1804. Abt 1816/17 they went to Vanderburgh Co., IN where they died. Which would have been after 1820. They had the following children: Jesse, Joseph, Anthony Floyd, Mary, Lorena, Winifred, John and Simon LANE.

May 15, 1997
 LANE, Joseph
Joesph LANE, 1st Territorial Gov of OR & his wife Polly, are said to have had a dau Mary Virginia LANE who m 3 Nov 1852 in Evansville, IN
Aaron Delany SHELBY.
Aaron was b 7 Oct 1827 near Henderson Co, KY. The SHELBYs I know (along with their connections to the HARTs) Would like to confirm Mary being the dau of Gov LANE.

Feb 2004 -Heather's home page [LANE family]

Heather states she has:
 "The Quiet Life of Mrs Gen Lane", by Victoria Case. This is about Polly and Gen Lane and their descendants.
Gen Joseph Lane was b on 14 Dec 1801 in Ashville, Buncombe Co, NC. He was buried in Apr 1881 in Roseburg, Doulas Co, OR. He d 19 Apr 1881 in Roseburg, Douglas Co, OR. Joseph's wife was Polly PIERCE, b 16 Mar 1802 in KY; m 23 Jun 1820 in Vanderburg Co, IN. She d 10 Aug 1870 in Roseburg; was bur in Aug 1870 in Roseburg - 11 children-one of which was MARY VIRGINA LANE.

Mary Virgina LANE, b 20 Apr 1830, Vanderburg Co, IN; d 3 Nov 1911 in OR; bur Nov 1911 in OR. Mary married Aaron SHELBY bef 1856 in IN.
Aaron was b in 1881 in OR.   Children: Eugene; Anna Blanche b 1856 in OR, d 10 Oct 1939 in OR.

[Have lost contact with her] Mrs Pat Osborn, Boise, ID 83709- Jan 1998- She was looking for James Asahel ABBOTT b 1831 in Jackson Co, IN; m Gentry Co, MO to Anna Mariah SHELBY, b 1833 Jackson Co, IN. Pat has been trying to prove a connection to Susan Amanda SHELBY, b 1831 in Monroe Co, IN.
Susan married James A FLEENOR in 1849. Both the ABBOTTs & FLEENORs took Oregon Donation land claims and records show them arriving in OR in 1853 and settling in Douglas Co, OR. Susan named a dau Anna Eugenia, and Anna named a daughter Susan.Aaron and Mary's children Annie and Eugene were b in Douglas Co, OR-
There should be a connection in here somewhere?; and could these all 'loop' back to Henderson Co, KY?? William and Sarah (NEEL) SHELBY of Henderson Co-the Aaron name passes thru their children.



Was going through Cass Knight SHELBYs (CKS) papers again, looking for clues on SHELBYs in Vermillion Co, Indiana-In particular a David SHELBY born 1792 somewhere in Pennsylvania. This David married Deborah HALL (b 1801 KY)      Hmmm
