More About NANCY BUCKLER:
  • Occupation: Housekeeper
Notes for MARY ELIZABETH THOMAS:
Mary Elizabeth Thomas's grand-daughter, Della Leona Hepp, told about Mary Elizabeth being married to a Shields boy, who was brother to John Henry Shields. John Henry was married to a Nancy Buckler/Buckner at the time. Mary Elizabeth had children by the first Shields boy, and John Henry had a son, Levi Shields, by Nancy. Then Mary Elizabeth's husband died and John Henry's wife died, and after that, Mary Elizabeth and John Henry married and had several children together.

It is believed Mary Elizabeth's first husband might have been Thomas Shields. Have never found a Thomas Shields on any census records, but there was a Harrison Shields, who was on the 1850 KY census and not on the 1860 census. Could it be Mary Elizabeth's husband was Harrison Shields and not Thomas?

Also, there is a doubt that Mary Elizabeth's maiden name was Thomas. On a death cert. of William Henry Shields, it says mother was Mary Allen. There is also a possibility that her maiden name is Johnson or Thompson. And this could be an entirely different William H. Shields, can find no definite proof.

1870 Census - Harrison Co., KY
William Henry Shields is living with John Henry and Mary Elizabeth in Harrison County, KY, but whose son is he? (Believed to be Mary Elizabeth's by a previous marriage)
