I am trying to help a fellow Wyomingite to find his Kentucky ancestors. He believes he descends from Polly Shacklett (d/o John Shacklett and Barbara Quick Shacklett).
Polly m/1 Thomas Mills in Fayette Co., PA. He died, but not before fathering three children: John Shacklett Mills, Thomas H. Mills and Benjamin Mills. Benjamin Mills m. Harriet B. Lucas on 12 Sept 1833 in Meade County,KY Harriet believed to be d/o Abraham Lucas and Mary Evans. Benjamin Mills appears on Meade Co. Tax lists for Meade County from 1824 through 1835. He has no land, and no deeds are recorded for him. No will is recorded for him. In 1850 LaRue County, Ky census Harriett Mills, age 40 appears in #198 household with two children, Mary A. Mills, aged 16 and Abram Mills, aged 14. It is believed that this family lived for a while in LaClede Co., Missouri, and eventually ended up in Wyoming Territory by 1874 and descendants live today in Ten Sleep, Washakie Co., Wyom. Are there Shacklett or Fulton descendants of Polly Shacklett Mills Fulton who might shed some light on this family? Mary "Polly" Shacklett Mills Fulton m/2 Daniel Fulton and they lived in Meade County, Hill Grove, KY and had 8 children, b. between 1804 and 1822.
