Descendants

of

John Dean

This has been a very difficult lineage to track down. If anyone has any information they can share to make this more complete, it would be deeply appreciated. Please contact me via email at KennyShackleford@aol.com.

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN1 DEAN was born Unknown in Ireland, and died Unknown in Possible Wilkes County, Georgia or North Carolina. He married ELIZABETH MINTON Unknown in Unknown. She was born Unknown in Unknown, and died Unknown in Possible Wilkes County, Georgia.

ELIZABETH MINTON

There has been some confusion as to who this Elizabeth Minton is and if she was the mother of James Minton, John , and Jarrett Dean. Some claim it so, others not. I have seen no documentation to verify this one way or the other. Take into consideration before restating this as fact that it could indeed be an error.

Children of JOHN DEAN and ELIZABETH MINTON are:

2. (I) JAMES MINTON2 DEAN, b. 1790, Possible Wilkes County, Georgia,

or North Carolina; d. 1855, Lowndes or Autauga County, Alabama.

3. (II) JOHN DEAN, b. 1784, Possible aboard Ship in Atlantic off the coast of

the Carolinas.; d. Unknown, Autauga County, Alabama.

(III) JARRETT DEAN, b. 1787, Possible Wilkes County, Georgia; d.

Unknown, Autauga County, Alabama; m. PRISCILLA MATHIS,

Unknown, possible South Carolina; b. 1792, Laurens County,

South Carolina; d. Unknown, Autauga County, Alabama.

JARRETT DEAN

1787 - UNKNOWN

Jarrett is believed to have moved to Alabama with his brothers, John and James Minton. He married Priscilla Mathis, sister of Nancy, wife of his brother John before his migration to Alabama. They lived the remainder of their lives in Autauga County, Alabama.

Generation No. 2

2. JAMES MINTON2 DEAN (JOHN1) was born 1790 in Possible Wilkes County, Georgia, or North Carolina, and died 1855 in Lowndes or Autauga County, Alabama. He married TABITHA UNKNOWN Unknown in Unknown. She was born 1800 in South Carolina, and died 1855 in Lowndes or Autauga County, Alabama.

JAMES MINTON DEAN

1790 - UNKNOWN

James Minton Dean was born in 1790. There is some confusion as to the location of his birth. Some have his birth being in Wilkes County, North Carolina; however, there is no sign of him in the North Carolina Census of 1790. James and his two brothers, John and Jarrett, settled in Lowndes County, Alabama, about 1819 after duty in the War of 1812. All had enlisted in Millidgeville, Georgia. John and James were in the Militia under the command of Captain Ezekiel Wimberley and were involved with the construction of Fort Telfair near Tasrversville in Twiggs County, Georgia, in September 1813. Due to the Georgia activity I am of the belief that this Dean family must have been in Wilkes County, Georgia, instead of North Carolina. There was a John Dean on the membership list of the Phillip's Mill Baptist Church Record of Wilkes County, Georgia, in 1785. It is highly unlikely that this is the brother of James. Yet, this could be the Father. His given Name is unknown at this time. The John above could be or not be the same John.

James purchased land in Autauga County, Alabama.

He married NANCY MATHIS Unknown in Laurens County, South Carolina, daughter of TOM MATHIS and UNKNOWN. She was born 1790 in Laurens County, South Carolina, and died Unknown in Autauga County, Alabama.

JOHN DEAN

1784 - UNKNOWN

It is alleged that John was born aboard ship when his parents migrated from Ireland in 1784. This has been disputed by some on the grounds that the British were still raiding ships inbound and outbound from America during that time. This, however, does not disprove John being born at sea. Many privateers made their living running the blockades and were key in commerce and immigration.

John married Nancy Mathis before his move to Alabama. Born in 1790 in South Carolina, she was the daughter of Tom Mathis, a veteran of the Revolutionary War. Both she and John lived out the remainder of their lives in Autauga County, Alabama.

ROBERT MARION DEAN

1885 - 1944

AMANDA LAVADA HARVILLE

1887 - 1972

by Kenny Shackleford

Robert Marion Dean, my grandfather, was born 1885 in the Blackrock Community in Western Crenshaw County, Alabama, next to the Butler County line. The exact year that he moved to Dozier, Alabama is unknown. He may have moved with his parents, Samuel MacDonald and Anna Barington Dean in the early 1900s. Samuel's Farm was located off Highway 29 East of Dozier about three miles, on the property owned by the Clark Family. A store was once operated on this land known as "Clark's Grocery." The old building, as of 2002, was still standing.

In his young adult years before marriage, Robert and his crew worked in the pioneering log industry. His team would cut down the pines and build a raft, complete with tent and loaded with the necessary supplies. They would then tie all the timber they had cut to the raft and float down the Conecuh from Dozier, Alabama, to Pensacola, some 120 miles in distance. There they would sell their timber and return home by train.

Robert married Amanda Lavada Harville, daughter of Hillary and Savannah Hicks Harville in 1905 near the Dozier area. Amanda was born in Pike County May 1887. She, along with her parents, moved to Dozier when she was still a child.

I never had the pleasure of knowing Grandpa Dean. He died eight years before my birth. From all the photos that I have seen of him, he was tall, dark haired, and quite handsome in his younger years. However, he must have suffered bad health later on in life. Other photos of him show a balding, aging man much beyond his years.

During his adult life he worked as a farmer and mill worker. As a mill worker, he, along with several of his sons and my Father, Iry Zeddie Shackleford, worked at a Logging Camp known as Bradley's Mill.

Bradley's Mill was a self sufficient camp located on the Old Central of Georgia Rail Road that ran from Troy in Pike County to Andalusia in Covington County. Being between Brantley and Dozier, Bradley's Mill provided jobs for many in the area during the first half of the 20th Century. It provided housing and even had a Commissary where employees and their families could do their shopping. Today, it remains only as old ruins and memories for a select few.

Robert, however, did not live on the location of Bradley's Mill. He lived about two miles away on land located behind the Enon Primative Baptist Church. I recently visited the area with my Mother, Eva Naomi Dean-Shackleford. Her memories of the old home place are still vivid. She is 85.

On the route to her old home is a very old graveyard where many original settlers of Crenshaw County are buried. Her Mother, Amanda, had told her that at nighttime you could hear the screams of someone buried there. Although I doubt there were any screams I would imagine the story made a very big impression on Robert's and Amanda's children.

On Robert's property were several "Pickle Vats." These vats were used by the locale farmers for storage of cucumbers. The cucumbers were stored in salt water and shipped by rail to plants that would pickle them and distribute them for sale.

This chore, along with the farm and the job at Bradley's Mill, took its toll on Robert. He died in 1944 of a heart attack while on the job at the mill. He was 59. Amanda, "Mama Dean," carried on her life for a short while at their last place of residence. In the late 1940's she moved to Dozier, Alabama, where she lived behind her daughter Ruby.

I remember her very well. When I was very young she still lived in a home with no running water or facilities. She always warned me of the snakes in the outhouse. That was a place I feared. Later her sons would build her a new house, complete with all the necessary equipment. Relief was much more pleasant.

After a prolonged illness, Amanda died in 1972 at the Andalusia Memorial Hospital from Arteriolosclerosis. She was laid to rest beside Robert at the Dozier Cemetery in Dozier, Alabama. They were members of the Church of Christ.

ALBY DEAN

Alva, known as "Alby," has the unique situation of actually being buried in two cemeteries. He was an amputee, having his leg removed at the knee. His leg was buried next to his infant sons at the Kimbro Cemetery near Dozier, Alabama. The rest of his body is in the Dozier Cemetery in Dozier, Alabama, several miles away.

Out of curiosity I asked my Mother, Naomi Dean-Shackleford, Alby's niece, the circumstance of him loosing his leg. During the 1930s, Alby got into an argument with the Dozier, Alabama Constable and was shot in the knee. Due to the nature of the wound, his leg had to be amputated at the knee.

It is quite obvious that Alby must have had a short fuse, as can be seen in the following newspaper account from 1910.

THE LUVERNE JOURNAL

JUNE 16, 1910

(Alva "Alby" Dean age 21 years shot Pink Sport at Dozier in the Central Saturday and fled to Andalusia where he was locked up in the county jail at that place. Sport is a man of family and is 25 years of age. He was shot through the jaw with a pistol.)

Reasons for the altercation above is unknown, as well as the outcome of any trial. If there was any time served it must have been brief. Not long after that incident Alby had married and had children.

She married IRY ZEDDIE (ZED) SHACKLEFORD December 23, 1930 in Brantley, Crenshaw County, Alabama, son of YOUNG SHACKELFORD and MARY NICHOLS. He was born October 08, 1907 in Crenshaw County, Alabama, and died December 04, 1988 in Crenshaw County, Alabama.

(The lineage of Zed Shackleford can be found at the following link.)

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/h/a/Kendrick-W-Shackleford/GENE35-0001.html

EVA NAOMI (NONNIE) DEAN

IRY ZEDDIE (ZED) SHACKLEFORD

Zeddie was named in honor of Zaddock Bonner, who discovered gold in Carroll County, Georgia in the early 1800s. Zaddock was the grandfather of Jerusha Carrie Bonner-Shackelford, who was the grandmother of Zeddie.

Zeddie's father, Young Lee Shackelford, died when he was 19. This left him in charge of his families welfare, so he decided to take the family from Alabama to the home of grandmother, Jerusha, in Carroll County, Georgia. While there, he attempted farming but due to hardships of "The Great Depression of 1929" and the hard rocky soil, his efforts at farming in Georgia failed. Against the wishes of his grandmother, and with the blessings of his mother, Mary Alice Nichols-Shackelford, Zeddie moved the family back to Crenshaw County,

Alabama. According to family memory, Mary Alice was never fond of Georgia and resented being so far from home and her Alabama relatives. They returned to Alabama in late 1929. Zeddie never again saw his grandmother alive and did not return to Georgia until 1948 for the reading of his grandmother's will. He received ten dollars.

Life was very hard on Zeddie when he returned to Alabama. When work was available it was either in the swamps cutting Dogwood, in the fields harvesting peanuts and cotton, or working in the saw mills. At best, his earning never surpassed fifty cents a day.

The following year, 1930, he met Eva Naomi Dean at a "Peanut Shelling" in the Spring Hill Community near Brantley, Alabama. Though she was only 14 at the time, they soon married. The first few years of marriage was a struggle to make ends meet.

In the 1930s Zed worked with "Bradley's Mill" between Brantley and Dozier in Crenshaw County, Alabama, located on the old Central of Georgia Rail Road. He and Naomi lived in a make shift home, half wood, half canvas, in a community created by the mill. Naomi's Father, as well as several brothers, also worked here. Their first born, Marion, was born during this time.

However; Zeddie again took up farming, doing so successfully, raising peanuts, corn, and cotton. During World War II, Zeddie often worked German POWs in his fields. He was amazed at their efficiency, not leaving a single peanut on the vine, and even picking stray plants that grew along the roadside.

According to family lore, it was during the years of farming that his spelling of Shackelford was changed to Shackleford. It is alleged that a government farm agent misspelled his name on some quota form. Due to his misfortunes during the depression, several of his friends suggested that he not make notice of it because it could interfere with his allotment payment. So from that moment on, his branch of the family has spelled their last name with the "le" instead of the "el".

Zeddie gave up farming in 1945 and moved to Brantley, where he was employed by the city. He now had two children, a son and daughter. He founded the City Water and Maintenance Departments and for many years worked as the manager of those departments. During this period he also gave his time as a volunteer fireman and auxiliary police officer. He was active in many community activities as well as a charter member of "Woodsmen of The world".

By 1952, Zeddie and Naomi had successfully raised a family. His son was in the United States Air Force serving in Korea and they had a seventeen year old daughter at home. Zeddie was 44 and Naomi was 35. One would think it would be time to sit down and relax for awhile. On April 29th of that year, Naomi gave birth to triplets, two boys and a girl. However, as fate would have it, three years later disaster struck. While working on the water lines in Brantley, Zeddie witnessed a head on collision between a passenger bus and a car. Driving the car was his son. He was killed instantly. Zeddie was devastated and Naomi had a nervous breakdown, not even being able to attend her son's funeral. The only cure for such pain was time.

Again, Zeddie and Naomi successfully raised another family. Zeddie continued working with the city of Brantley until the mid 1960s when he was hired as the Supervisor of The Crenshaw County School Maintenance Department. He semi-retired in 1972 and again worked part time with the city of Brantley and also ran a plumbing business.

In December 1980, Zeddie and Naomi celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. However; with failing health and years of hard work behind him, Zeddie called it quits and retired completely. On June 23, 1988, during the funeral of his son-in-law, Zeddie suffered a stroke and was taken to the Crenshaw County Hospital in Luverne, Alabama. Over a period of several months he had several more strokes that left him totally invalid. He died in Crenshaw County Hospital in December of that year.

As the cliche goes, "Behind every good man stands a good woman", this has never been any truer than it was with Naomi. Through richer or poorer, better or worse, she was very bound to her marriage vows. She has successfully fought a battle with colon cancer. Though suffering from bad eyesight, she is still energetic and acutely aware of her surrounding, still raising a garden and cutting her own grass. She also does quilting as a hobby, not letting her sight bother her too much. She still manages to produce some remarkable works of art.

Two of Crenshaw Triplets Named For Medics

Luverne, Ala., April 29. Two of the newly born Shackelford triplets were named today in friendship for the doctor who delivered them and his partner in the hospital where they arrived. The two boys and a sister were born at Kendrick Memorial Hospital last night to 35-year-old Mrs. Zeddie Shackelford, mother of an Army Sergeant fighting in Korea. They were reported "doing real well" today.

One boy was named Donnie Ray Shackelford, after Dr. James C. Ray, the doctor who attended Mrs. Shackelford. The other was christened Kendrick Wayne, for Dr. James E. Kendrick, co-owner at the hospital.

The girl was named Eva Faye. Mrs. Shackelford and her 44-year-old husband, a city foreman at nearby Brantley, Ala., have two other children, Sgt. Marion Young Shackelford, in Korea, and 17-year-old Mary Lavada.

    1. MARION YOUNG (BILLY)7 SHACKLEFORD, b. November 13, 1931, Crenshaw County, Alabama; d. April 19, 1955, Brantley,

Crenshaw County, Alabama.

MARION YOUNG (BILLY) SHACKLEFORD

Marion, known as "Billy", was born and raised in Brantley, Alabama attending school there. He left school and went to work at a young age for the City of Brantley. While working with the town he was bitten in the forehead by a cotton mouth snake while clearing brush. This caused him seizures for many years. However, it did not prevent his entering into military service.

Billy joined the Alabama National Guard in 1949. By 1951 he had attained the rank of staff sergeant and was serving with the 711th AAA Gun BN, Battery C. While on summer camp at Camp Stewart, Georgia in 1951, his unit was mobilized and sent to the Pacific during the Korean War. He was stationed at Okinawa. He returned home in 1952 and joined the United States Air Force in 1953. He was again sent to the Pacific, serving at Clarke Air Force Base in the Philippines until early 1955. He ran a refueling group while there and worked refueling F-86 Sabres.

Billy was scheduled to return home in March 1955. however, in haste to leave he forgot his travel orders. He was refused boarding on a MATS R6-D transport aircraft leaving Hickam field in Hawaii en route to Travis AFB, California. Three and one-half hours out the aircraft developed troubled and turned back to Hickam. The plane crashed into the Wai'anae Mountains near Lualualei Naval Ammunition Depot, killing all 66 aboard. Billy made it home around the first of April.

He was to be stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in April 1955. While returning to Brantley from Luverne, Alabama on April 19, 1955, he was involved in a head on collision with a Trailways Bus, killing him instantly. His father, Zeddie Shackleford, was working on a water main that was being laid across the road when the accident occurred and witnessed the event. He was the first one to the car after the crash.

 

Montgomery Advertiser on April 20, 1955

Bus Damaged in Head-on Collision

Shown above (picture missing) is the Trailways bus, which was the victim of a head-on collision in which Marion Young (Billy) Shackelford plowed his automobile into on Hwy US 29. The bus driver, W.A. Findley of Montgomery suffered a fractured left leg and other injuries. Other passengers hospitalized were Miss Dean Flowers of Brantley, Sgt. Thomas Johnston of Camp Lucas, Michigan, fractured right foot; M.L. Bradshaw, Pinson, Ala., facial injuries; and Mrs. Ruby Updegraff, Brantley, hip injuries.

The bus, carrying 18 passengers was northbound from Florida to Montgomery. It was knocked from the highway from the impact although the bus driver had pulled off the highway to the right in an effort to avoid the collision. Shackelford was killed instantly. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Zeddied Shackelford of Brantley.

    ROY SIMS

    FROM THE RESEARCH OF DONNIE SHACKLEFORD

    Not long after the birth of Bobby Sims, the only child of Roy Sims and Ruby Dean, Roy would end up in prison. He was a cold man and obviously very jealous. One day Ray found Ruby talking to another man. He without warning walked up the the man and shot him, killing him instantly. Roy was sentenced to Kilby Prison in Montgomery, Alabama and remained there many years, not being released until after his only son had married and started a family of his own. Ruby would not allow him to return, a wise move. The day Roy was released from prison he was arrested only a few hours later for robbery, which resulted in his return to prison. However, after a few more years he was again released. After his second release Roy worked at odd jobs but his unlawful ways would soon return. Roy and an associate by the name of "Peanut" Lewis was attempting to rob a Grocery Store in Troy, Alabama, owned by someone known as "Pig" Davis. Roy was about drunk and got careless, turning his back to Pig and Pig grabbed his rifle and shot Roy. Peanut was supposed to be watching from the back door and apparently he was also careless and did not protect Roy. Peanut supposedly shot into the rear door and then ran after Roy was shot and was later captured. Roy died in the same violent manner that he lived his life.

    Child of RUBY DEAN and ROY SIMS is:

MARY LAVADA7 SHACKLEFORD (EVA NAOMI (NONNIE)6 DEAN, ROBERT MARION5, SAMUEL (MACK) MACDONALD4, CHARLES SUMPTER (SUMP)3, JAMES MINTON2, JOHN1) was born February 03, 1935 in Crenshaw County, Alabama. She married (1) JUSTICE (JUNIOR) RUSSELL, JR. 1956 in Crenshaw County, Alabama, son of JUSTICE RUSSELL and DORA UNKNOWN.

He was born March 25, 1945 in White City, Chilton County, Alabama, and died June 25, 1988 in Jacksonville, Duvall County, Florida.

MARY LAVADA SHACKLEFORD

Mary was born at home in the Springhill Community of south Crenshaw County, Alabama on February 03, 1935. After her birth the family of Zeddie and Naomi moved from the Springhill Community to the small townn of Brantley, Alabama in the southern most part of Crenshaw County. This is where Mary completed school and after her school years she married at the age of twenty-one. Mary would marry two times, her first marriage was to Justice "Junior" Russell in the year 1956. The month of their marriage is unknown. Justice "Junior" Russell was a son of Justice O. Sr. and N. Dora Russell from the small community of Shellhorn in southern Montgomery County, Alabama. Junior grew up in this area of Alabama where he attended school in Ansley, Pike County, Alabama. After he finished school he enlisted into the United States Navy where he served one term at sea. After he left service he met and married Mary Lavada Shackelford in Troy, Pike County, Alabama. This would be their home for a short time. After leaving Troy, they moved to Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia and from there moved to Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama. While in Montgomery, Junior worked for the Veterans Administration at the VA Hospital in Montgomery. It was while in Montgomery that Mary and Junior would divorce. After their divorce Junior moved to Jacksonville, Duvall County, Florida where he worked as a carpenter until his death on April 04, 1987. His death was the result of a massive heart attack. After his death he was brought back to Alabama where he was buried next to his mother and father at the Belzer Cemetery in North Crenshaw County, Alabama. The same cemetery where the first son of Mary and Junior was buried.

Mary married second in Prattville, Autauga County, Alabama in 1969 to Elbie Bernie Glenn who was born in White City, Chilton County, Alabama. At the time of their marriage, Bernie was the local milkman. In today's time, the milkman no longer exist, but for those who have no understanding of the occupation, in the earlier years, the milkman was the one who delivered the milk to your home. This was how Mary came to know Bernie. I remember a joke many years ago about running off with the milkman, I guess in Mary's case, this wasn't a joke. Soon after their marriage, Mary and Bernie gave birth to their only son between them, Anthony "Tony" Glenn. It was not long after his birth that Mary and Bernie suffered a seperation that would last for eight long years. During these years, not knowing of Bernie's where abouts, she remained loyal. In 1978 Bernie and Mary made amends and reshaped their marriage. After reuniting Mary and Bernie moved to Prattville, Autauga County, Alabama where they lived for a couple of years before moving to Brantley, Crenshaw County, Alabama. It was here that Bernie desperately tried to take over and manage the business that Mary's father had retired from. But after realizing failure in such a rural area, Bernie and Mary moved to Jacksonville, Duvall County, Florida where Bernie worked for a local Plumbing contractor. The time was early 1988.

The next year would prove very difficult for Mary and her family. On June 22, 1988, while at work Bernie was climbing a ladder to the second story of the building they were working on. When he reached the top, the ladder he was on gave way. In effort to keep from falling Bernie grabbed the first thing he could. This move would prove fatal. Bernie latched onto a heavy generator which was on the top of the second floor, pulling it off when he made his fall. When he reached the ground, the generator came down on top of him. It was three days later, on June 25, Bernie died from massive internal injuries. His death occurred only a short distance from where Mary's first husband died ony a little more than a year earlier. Bernie was brought home and laid to rest in the plot with Mary's older brother Billy at the Branley Memorial Cemetery in Brantley, Crenshaw County, Alabama. The story does not end there. On the day of Bernie's funeral, Mary's father suffered a stroke and died five months later. Her father Zeddie died just a few doors down the hall where Mary's favorite Aunt and sister of her father had died two months earlier. Within a five month span, Mary lost her Husband, father and aunt. After the death of Bernie, Mary returned to Brantley and moved in next door to her mother, Eva Naomi Shackelford where they both live to this date. Mary continues to look after her mother in a way that can always be highly respected and appreciated by all of us.

JUSTICE (JUNIOR) RUSSELL, JR

Justice, known as "Junior", served in the United States Navy during the Korean War aboard a destroyer. After he and Mary married, he lived for a short time in Kennesaw, Georgia where he was manager to a service station. He returned to Montgomery in the early 1960s and worked as a fireman for the Veterans Administration in Montgomery, Alabama. Junior and Mary were divorced in the mid 1960s. He died in Jacksonville, Florida of a heart attack in 1987. He is buried at the Belzer Cemetery in North East Crenshaw County, Alabama.

ELBIE BERNIE GLENN

GLEN KIETH RUSSELL

Keith, as he is known by family and friends, recently retired from the United States Air force after more than twenty years of service. He and his wife Rhonda decided to make the city of Las Vegas, Nevada their home after his retirement. Many of his years in the Air force was spent at Nellis AFB in Nevada and during this time Rhonda had developed a career in psychology. They are both still very active enjoying many hobbies such as hiking and frequently travel accross the west in pusuit of this hobby.

Keith began his career in Meteorology and became a weather forecaster but later changed his Air Force career to computers. He was transferred to Nellis Airforce Base in Las Vegas, Nevada where he retired as Master Sargent after twenty years of service. He and Rhonda remained in Las Vegas where Keith still works in the computer industry and Rhonda works in Social Physiology. On occasion I have had the opportunity to visit them in Las Vegas when I would be lucky to find them at home. Often if someone wishes to find them, one would have to find the nearest mountains, national forest, etc. They spend much of their time back packing and hiking the great outdoors of the West. It would be a great idea if one wants to visit them to take two pair of shoes. You are very likely to wear out one pair just trying to keep up with them.

Keith and Rhonda did not have any children.

(IV) ANTHONY (TONY)8 GLENN, b. November 16, 1970, Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama; m. LORRAINE THOMPSON, Unknown, Montgomery, Alabama; b. Unknown, Montgomery, Alabama.

ANTHONY (TONY) GLENN

Tony, as we all know him, was also raised in or near the same home as I was. He came into my parents life after I was close to being a young adult so in a manner of speaking Tony was more a brother and less nephew to me. Most of Tony's earlier years were in the small of town of Brantley, Alabama, having graduated there with top honors of his class. After he finished High School, Tony was awarded a scholarship and graduated magna cum laude from Auburn University at Montgomery at Montgomery in Montgomery, Alabama. He received his degree at Auburn and after four years of college, graduated in 1993. However, I do believe Tony was determined to be a career student. After his marriage to Lorraine Thompson he enrolled at the University of Georgia where he earned his Masters degree in 1995 While earning his Masters degree, Tony focused on fungal systematic and phylogenetic. His work in this area was highly regarded among his peers, who selected him to preside over a discussion section dealing with molecular biology and systematic at the 3rd International Neotyphodium Grass Interaction Symposium held at the University of Georgia in 1997. In fact, the symposium he presided over is now named for the work he produced in his Masters thesis. Tony has excelled both as a student and a scientist. He was honored as the Outstanding Ph.D. Student for the year 2000 at the University of Georgia's College of Agriculture.

34. EVA FAYE (LADY BUG)7 SHACKLEFORD (EVA NAOMI (NONNIE)6 DEAN, ROBERT MARION5, SAMUEL (MACK) MACDONALD4, CHARLES SUMPTER (SUMP)3, JAMES MINTON2, JOHN1) was born April 29, 1952 in Luverne, Crenshaw County, Alabama. She married JOSEPH FERRELL (JOE) TIDWELL July 24, 1971 in Andalusia, Covington County, Alabama, son of LEAVY TIDWELL and TINNIE CAMPBELL. He was born July 14, 1951 in Troy, Pike County, Alabama.

EVA FAYE (LADY BUG) SHACKLEFORD

Eva Faye Shackelford is the third child of Iry Zeddie and Eva Naomi Dean-Shackelford and was born at the Kendrick Memorial Hospital in Luverne, Crenshaw County, Alabama on April 29, 1952. Weighing in at 5 lbs 8 oz Faye was only one of three born to Mrs Shackelford. One of a triplett and the only female of the three. The name of Faye was given after the head nurse in the delievery roon, Faye Ray. Faye grew up, as did her triplett brothers in the small town of Brantley in the southern portion of Crenshaw County, Alabama. She attended school in Brantley and through the years played the role of big sister to her two mischevious younger brothers always trying to keep them straight and without much success.

During her younger years Faye's two brothers, Donnie and Kenny would become close friends with Joseph "Joe" Tidwell, this friendship taking place at the age of six. From that young of an age Joe always seemed to have a special feeling for Faye. Through out their school years Joe would try and win the favor of Faye but never seemed to manage. That changed after they left school and on July 24, 1971, ten days after his 20th birthday, Joe and Faye married. When he proposed and she accepted, it was off to the Justice of the Peace in Andalusia, Covington County, Alabama. Rumor has it the Justice was awaken to perform the ceromony. I guess Joe was not going to allow forr any wasted time in fear Faye might change her mind. Joseph "Joe" Ferrel Tidwell was born in Troy, Pike County, Alabama on July 14, 1951 and is the son of Leavy Henry and Tinnie Lee Campbell-Tidwell.

After their marriage they lived for a time in Elba, Coffee County, Alabama but Joe soon joined the United States Army and served much of his time at Fort Sill, Oklahoma where they lived in the nearby town of Lawton, Oklahoma. After Joe's tour of duty they returned to Alabama and moved to Prattville, Autauga County, Alabama where they are still living. Joe currently works as a machinist and Faye works on a part time basis. She choose a profession that is probably the hardest work with the highest responcibility and with the lowest pay, that of a housewife and wonderful mother of two great boys, Joseph Scott and Jonathan.

DONNIE RAY SHACKLEFORD

Donnie Shackleford, A Short Bio

Donnie Ray Shackelford is the fourth child, second son and second of triplets of Iry Zeddie and Eva Naomi Dean-Shackelford and was born at the Kendrick Memorial Hospital in Luverne, Crenshaw County, Alabama on April 29, 1952. He was the first born of two identical brothers. He, as was his siblings, was raised in the small town of Brantley in the southern portion of Crenshaw County.

Through his school years Donnie and his brother Kenny found things to be interesting as they were both so identical to each other. It would not be what would be referred to as a normal childhood. From the first day they were dressed the same, always mirror images of each other, at least this is how it would remain until their teenage years. Identification was difficult at best for their school teachers and they were often forced to sit in specifically marked desks so the teachers would know one from the other. And if one had a problem with a teacher, then it was usually both who paid the price as the teachers could not be for sure who the true guilty party was. It was all for fun mostly and through their years, their being identical came in handy in several ways and often was a great avenue to play some fun jokes on others. A game they played into their adult life. A couple of those games can be remembered as follows. One would go into a business and start a conversation with someone and say something to the effect, "I think I'll grow a beard". Well Kenny did have a beard, Donnie didn't. Kenny, being outside would walk in as soon as Donnie would leave and walk up t the person and say, "how do you like my beard." Another incident that was not really intened happened later in life after Donnie became a Pilot for a private charter company. The dispatcher who had just dispatched Donnie and the plane had the unexpected experience of seeing Kenny walk in shortly after the plane departed. Needless to say, the dispatcher nearly collapsed thinking the plane had been stolen.

Later in his life at the age of twenty Donnie met his future wife, Constance "Connie" Sessions. Connie is the oldest child and a daughter of the late Calvin and Robbie Jordan Sessions and was born at Maxwell Air force Base in Montgomery County, Alabama on October 26, 1954. When Donnie and Connie first met, it was love at first sight, they married only two months after first meeting on September 17, 1972. Their marriage was performed by the Pastor George Edward Giddons in Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama.

After their marriage Donnie and Connie lived in Montgomery but soon after the birth of their only child Naomi, due to financial hardship, they were forced to move back to Brantley, Crenshaw County, Alabama where they lived with Donnie's parents. During the next three years Donnie worked as a laborer for a brick mason, working many hard hours each day for very little pay. His wife Connie worked for a local Sport's supply warehouse in Luverne. After three years they moved back to Montgomery where life started to make changes. Donnie worked for four years with a local manufacturing company while attending Auburn University at Montgomery and Connie started to work with the US Government and attended Troy State University in Montgomery.

During these years Donnie decided to pursue a childhood dream of becoming a pilot. In 1977 he received his private pilot's licensee and immediately started to work on his instrument and commercial ratings. In 1979 Donnie had gone to work as a full time instructor after attending the International Aviation Academy in Wichita, Kansas and within a year was flying for a local aircraft charter company, which by 1983 he became the director and chief pilot for the company.

(II) CHRISTOPHER LANE (CHRIS) SHACKLEFORD, b. July 02, 1981, Baptist Hospital, Montgomery, Alabama; d. July 29, 2000, Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia.

CHRISTOPHER LANE (CHRIS) SHACKLEFORD

Christopher was a graduate of Woodstock High School in Woodstock, Georgia and attending Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia where he was majoring in Film. He was an aspiring young actor with ambitions for the movies. Chris had performed in several plays and had been an active member of the Atlanta Workshop Players and performed with the Georgia Renaissance Festival. He was working on a film for an independent producer in Los Angeles, California.

On July 29, 2000, after 1:00a.m, my wonderful son died in Marietta, Georgia. He, along with three friends were on their way to watch movies at a friend's home when a drunk driver crossed the center line and smashed into my son's car. Chris, 19, died instantly, his friend Julieanne Pascoe, 18, died within a few minutes. Another passenger and close friend to my family, Miechelle "Kelli" Bourgeois, 19, died the following Wednesday in Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. All three of these wonderful people are buried beside each other at Rolling Hills Gardens Cemetery in Acworth, Georgia. Mathew Hunt, 24, future husband of Keli was injured very badly and is in a rehabilitation hospital where he faces many months, if not years, of extensive therapy.

The driver of the car that had hit my son was 20 and had been drinking underage in a local bar. He got into a fight in the bar and was kicked out and set loose on the road in a drunken rage. Before he got out of the parking lot he hit several cars and ran over a pedestrian, seriously injuring him. This individual had an expired green card, spoke no English, and had been arrested for drunken driving previously.

We live in a flawed society that will allow these type of people to be on the road to kill and mame our loved ones. In the name of Chris, Kelli, and Julie, my wife Cindy and I, along with the other parents and friends, have made it our mission to prevent this sort of stupidity from happening again, though sadly, it will.

In honor to my Beloved Son, Chris

I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: I said in my haste, All men are liars. What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. O Lord, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people. In the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.

Chris L. Shackleford died at 1:15am, Saturday, July 29, 2000, in a car accident caused by a drunk driver on Sandtown Road in Cobb County, which is just northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. He was 19 years old. Julieanne Pascoe, 18, a friend of Chris', also died shortly after the accident in a local hospital.

Matthew Hunt, 24, and Michelle "Kelli" Bourgeois, 19, were both severely injured.

Kelli died late Wednesday night from injuries sustained in the accident. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ran this article about Kelli, Matt, and some more details on the accident, on Thursday morning.

Tests found that the drunk driver, who is 20 years old, had a blood-alcohol level of .178 just after the crash, which is more than double the legal limit in Georgia (.08). He did not have a valid drivers license or insurance. The AJC printed this on Wednesday, August 2nd. He has been charged with three counts of vehicular homicide, DUI, assault, and several other charges, which are detailed in this article published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. On August 25, the Cobb County police department charged a waitress that served the drunk driver.

Chris was a friend of many, and was a very active member of the online community, in many different chat systems and message boards. Since many of us first met Chris online, we felt that an online tribute was needed. This site was named 'filmboy18.com' in honor of one of the nicknames that Chris used in the chat rooms, because of his love for film and movies. Chris was a freshman at Georgia State University, majoring in film studies. He was also a very talented writer, and enjoyed sharing his works with others.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, those wishing to offer a memorium, please do so by making a donation to S.T.O.P, Inc. (Saving The Other Person).

 

Chris was working on a feature-length movie script, and was almost finished when the accident occurred. His friends and his family are committed to seeing the movie produced. Efforts will begin soon to make this happen. We will share the details on this website when we have them. If you have the knowledge or resources to help with this endeavor, please let us know by emailing

During a typical weekend, an average of one teenager dies each hour in a car crash in the United States. Nearly fifty percent of those crashes involved alcohol (NHTSA, 1999). That's one every two hours. This has to stop. We can make a difference, if we just speak out. If you do drink, make sure you have a designated driver, or take a taxi. If one of your friends is about to drive after drinking, take his or her keys. Hide them. Do anything to keep him or her out of that car. Another way you can help is by supporting Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. You can donate to the Georgia Chapter online.

ATLANTA JOURNAL CONTSITUTION

VIGIL REMEMBERS THREE TEENS

YOLANDA RODRIGUEZ - STAFF

Monday, October 30, 2000

It's been three months since a drunken driving accident in Marietta took the lives of three teenagers. But the passage of days and weeks has not healed the pain for those who lit candles during a vigil Sunday night, vowing to stop drunken drivers. "I just miss having her around," said Dawn Pascoe, mother of Julieanne Pascoe, 18, one of the teens who died July 29 on Sandtown Road.

The vigil was held in the parking lot of the Masonic lodge. It was just a few steps from the scene where Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez, who had been thrown out of the Dos Naciones bar for fighting, allegedly crashed his Lincoln Continental into a Honda Civic, killing Pascoe and Christopher Shackleford, 19, the driver. A third teenager Miechelle "Kelli" Bourgeois, 19, died a few days later. Montelongo-Sanchez was charged with their deaths. He is being held in the Cobb County jail.

The accident spurred the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service in Georgia to begin deportation proceedings against illegal immigrants who are caught driving drunk. The policy has affected mostly Mexicans and Central Americans in Cobb, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties. So far, proceedings against 64 people have been started.

In their grief over the teens' deaths, their friends started an organization, STOP Drunk Driving (Save The Other Person), in an effort to get people to behave responsibly when it comes to consuming alcohol. During the vigil, they handed out copies of a resolution asking people to stop DUIs before they happen. The pledge can also be made online at the group's Web site.

Although their children were killed by a Hispanic man, the families stressed that their efforts were not meant to single out any ethnic group. "We need to fix the problem," said Deborah Dahlmann, Bourgeois' mother, said before the vigil. "We don't need to throw blame around . . . I want to go into Hispanic establishments and I want them to be able to say, 'We don't condone what happened, either.' "

Cindy Shackleford, Christopher's mother, said the group faces a language barrier because none of the members speaks Spanish. So far the resolution is available only in English but they hope to get it translated, she said.

DRIVER INDICTED IN THREE DEATHS

A Cobb County grand jury has indicted a driver on three counts of vehicular homicide in an accident that killed three teenagers on Sandtown Road. According to prosecutors, Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez was driving drunk after being thrown out of the Dos Naciones bar in Marietta on July 29. He allegedly hit and injured a pedestrian in the bar's parking lot before speeding away. He then crashed his southbound car into a northbound Honda Civic. Three teenagers died after the crash.

The 22-count indictment was presented Thursday to Superior Court Judge Watson White. District Attorney Pat Head said the charges also include DUI, serious injury by vehicle and aggravated assault. No court date has been set for an arraignment. Montelongo-Sanchez is being held in the Cobb County Jail.

The waitress accused of serving alcohol to Montelongo-Sanchez, who was 20 at the time of the accident, has asked for a trial. Leydi Mendoza faces a misdemeanor charge of serving alcohol to an underage person. Her lawyer, William M. Clark, said a nonjury trial has been set for Dec. 13.

INS STARTS DEPORTING ILLEGALS IN DUI CASES

Tough policy by local office draws criticism from some as unfair and insensitive.

Craig Schneider - Staff

Sunday, October 29, 2000

Should an illegal immigrant who drives drunk be treated any differently than a U.S. citizen caught for DUI?

The Immigration and Naturalization Service in Atlanta now says yes --- and it has started deportation proceedings against 64 illegal immigrants caught driving drunk.

But advocates for immigrants in metro Atlanta think that's unfair.

The deportations began this summer, after Bart Szafnicki, an INS assistant district director, read about three teenagers killed by an alleged drunken driver. Szafnicki thought about his own three teens, and when he learned the suspect was an illegal immigrant, he pressed for a DUI crackdown that touched off the deportation proceedings, mainly affecting Mexicans and Central Americans in Cobb, Gwinnett and DeKalb counties. "I thought about how I would feel if it was my child, " said Szafnicki, who lives in Gwinnett County. "Anyone who is arrested for DUI who is an illegal alien needs to go home." Why treat immigrants differently on DUI? "The native-born population in the U.S. has largely recognized the problem with DUI," Szafnicki said. "But with the new influx of immigrants, I just don't think the word has filtered down."

Teodoro Maus, Mexico's consul general in Atlanta, criticized the deportations as overly punitive for a population of mainly law-abiding and productive people. Though many are here illegally, they are unofficially allowed to stay because their labor helps the local economy. Immigrants are adjusting to different cultures and attitudes about drinking, Maus said, and many are simply unaware of the seriousness of DUI. Many of the immigrants in metro Atlanta are young men working long hours in the construction trade. "They are afraid of going out because they might get caught" as illegal, Maus said. "So they go and get drunk." When they're caught driving, they should be punished, Maus said, "but also with a very strong educational element" --- and not with deportation.

The INS began the deportations after Sergio Montelongo-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was charged with driving drunk and crashing into a car, killing three teens in Marietta. He is in jail awaiting a grand jury appearance.

The INS had stepped up deportations of illegal immigrants charged with crimes, but DUIs were a low priority until the Marietta tragedy.

Now it's impacting illegal immigrants like Montelongo-Sanchez and Anibal Cisneros-Gomez. Gomez, 34, was charged with DUI in Gwinnett on Aug. 25. He also gave a false identity to an officer and tried to flee, Szafnicki said. He was convicted five days later and deported in September. "Anyone here illegally should be removed," Cobb Sheriff Bill Hutson said, applauding the deportation effort. "But I agree with the higher priority put toward those endangering the public by driving under the influence."

A STORY BY CHRIS SHACKLEFORD Christmas 1999

Rockwell Couldn’t Do Better

As I was sitting on my back porch smoking a cigarette last Christmas Eve, something incredible grabbed my attention. My neighbors who lived in a two-million-dollar mansion and my other neighbors who lived in an old, shabby trailer were celebrating with the same amount of joy. They were not celebrating together, but I could see that both families were equally happy. This completely baffled my mind. I could not comprehend how the families could be so different throughout the year and then be so similar during the holidays. I looked closer.

In the mansion, a Christmas tree reached almost all the way up to the Cathedral ceiling of the cavernous living room. Gathered around it were columns of presents with a glorious variety of wrapping paper, children anxiously waiting to tear into the gifts, and their proud parents looking on with all the love proud parents should have. Warm smiles appeared on every face as an older woman came into the room with a tray full of cocoa, eggnog, and various cookies.

Outside there were two elderly gentlemen bundled up in leather, sharing old memories while smoking their pipes. Children, older than the ones around the Christmas tree, were chasing the family dog back and forth in a game of tag. These people were not at all bothered by the fact that it was below freezing outside; they were enjoying life.

The thousands of white Christmas lights against the night sky seemed to frame the family and mansion as if it were a portrait. This was a perfect picture of a traditional American Christmas; Norman Rockwell couldn’t have painted it better. A blind man would have seen the joy on their faces.

My attention drifted from the mansion when I heard laugher coming from the center room of the trailer. In this room children and adults were huddled around a small, plastic tree along with a few presents that had been wrapped-up with used newspapers. The children looked anxious to jump into the gifts as the parents looked upon them with pride and contentment. A table had been set up in the corner with bottles of Coca-Cola, a plate of finger sandwiches, and various cookies, but had since been emptied by large appetites.

A cloud of cigarette smoke was hovering over the trailer outside where several men were gathered around talking about the surprising Atlanta Falcons. Across the yard two young teenagers were throwing a football back and forth pretending to be members of the Falcons. Every few minutes one of the smokers would cheer for the teenagers. The fact that it was below freezing didn’t bother them; they were enjoying life.

The stars in the sky were the only decoration they had besides the small, artificial tree, but that didn’t seem to phase them. They were having their traditional Christmas. The joy they were having even brought a smile to my face.

After watching these families for about an hour, I came to the conclusion that the only real difference was the money. They both had loving families, they both celebrated Christmas, and they both were my neighbors. All I had to do was look a little closer to understand how they could have the same joy. I realized that joy is not based on money, but based on love. I then went inside to be with my family.
