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.
The oldest child, Susan, was the daughter of Ellen and her first husband,
William was the child of Jesse Shankle and first wife Fanny Jane Newton. I
know you meant Fanny Jane. Jesse and Ellen lived in AL at the time of their
marriage but I haven't found a listing either.

Had to include the 1880 just because of the twin daughter's names, not
sure but may be two names run together.
The names of the twins as given to me by my great aunt [daughter of Lemuel K.
Shankle] were Clarissann Sonomia and Ariann Sephronia. She was not 100% sure
of the spellings, however.
What is the correct spelling Shankle or Shankles?
My line from Lemuel Shankle forward spelled the name Shankle with no 's' at
the end. In fact I have heard them say that we were not related to those who
spelled their name Shankles. Since I have been working on family history I have
learned that the two groups were definitely related and both names are found
in the older records and are used interchangeably.
