My husband is descended from Lucenda W. Shelhorse, daughter of Henry & Elizabeth Shelhorse. Henry is listed as being the son of Barnett of VA. Lucenda married William M. Cochran in Gordon Co. GA.
I found a transcript of Gordon Co. GA 1860 Census, Town of Fairmount: SHELHOUSE: Henry, 50; Elizabeth, 50; children: Born in VA:Issac 23, Henry F. 20, Azariah B 17;Born in GA: John M. 15, Martha J. 12, & Lucenda W. 10.The transcript read Shelhouse but other records I found say Shelhorse.
The records I have show that Elizabeth was a Bates from VA.
If anyone else has connections to this GA family or can share information I'd love to hear from you.
