The last SHOCKLEY that is part of my family line is Mary Ellen SHOCKLEY. She was born during 1869 in Arkansas (probably Grant County) and married Charles M. HAYES 3 March 1887 in Pulaski County Arkansas. Mary Ellen and Charles had the following children:
Prencie Hayes (married Frank KODER)
Horace Hayes (married a HICKS?)
Lester Hayes (married Lula BURTON)
Ruby Violet Hayes, b. 16 Oct 1901 (married Roscoe Daniel MCCOOL)
Mary Ellen later married Henry Badger McCool. They had no children.
Mary Ellen's parents were James Aquilla SHOCKLEY and Balcus HOOD. Their marriage record data is:
Balens Hood age 25 and James A. Shockley age 27, married 25 Nov 1860
