Re: Hastings-Shankle(s) Jesse G. Shankles and Mary Jane Newton
As Nicole said Nancy Jane Shankles was Hannah's aunt.
Fanny Jane Newton was Jesse G. Shankles first wife. They were married
17 Nov 1858 in DeKalb Co. AL. I believe Fanny Jane Newton was Mary
Jane Newton's aunt.

Ellen is (from a family tree) Ellen Wooten, Jesse G.'s second wife
married Oct 1866 probably in GA. The two oldest children above would
be Mary Jane Newton's. I could not find a marriage listing in GA or AL.

Had to include the 1880 just because of the twin daughter's names, not
sure but may be two names run together.

Here is the listing for Nancy Jane Shankles to Stephen Hastings.
Stephen Hasten m. Nancy Jane Shankles Lic. Issued 16 July 1845 married
20 July 1845 Marshall Co. AL by Murphy Bruce Page 253.
Hopefully I have kept all the back and forth name spelling changes right.
What is the correct spelling Shankle or Shankles?
