4. HARRISON BAKER SHIELDS

Harrison Baker Shields (4)

HARRISON BAKER SHIELDS (WILLIAM) was born 1803 in Maryland, and died Bef. 1880 in Ohio. He married (1) MATILDA RICHARDSON/RICHERSON September 07, 1825 in Bourbon Co., KY, daughter of JAMES RICHARDSON/RICHERSON and MELISSA. She was born Abt. 1812 in Bourbon Co., KY, and died Bet. 1860 - 1870 in Bracken Co., KY. He married (2) MARY JANE SHOEMAKER 1841 in Adams Co., OH. She was born 1817 in London, England, and died Aft. 1880 in Ohio.

Notes for HARRISON BAKER SHIELDS:
  • Believed at first that Baker Shields died between 1850 and 1860 as Matilda Richardson Shields showed up on the 1860 Bracken Co. census, pg. 75, living with son, Leonard, and his family. 
  • Later information may show that Baker divorced Matilda sometime around 1851 and maybe married a Mary Jane Shoemaker, having more children beginning in 1852. So far have not found any proof one way or the other on these assumptions. The 1850 Nicholas Co., KY census says Baker Shields was b. 1803 in Maryland. Then the 1860 Adams Co., OH census shows Harrison B. Shields was b. 1803 Maryland. Believe Baker Shields and Harrison B. Shields are one and the same person. 
In the Nicholas Co. order book, G. 1846 to 1855
  • October term - 1846
  • Ordered that $30 be allowed to Baker Shields for the maintenance of James Richeson and wife until the next October term and John Alexander Esq. is appointed to receive and distribute the same.
  • October term - 1847
  • Ordered that $40 be allowed to Baker Shields for keeping James Richardson the ensuing year and that Jno Alexander be appointed to receive and distribute the same. 
  • April term - 1850
  • Ordered that Baker Shields, Daniel Bryan and hands are added to the road precincts in which William ( ) is now surveying. 
1830 Census - Pg. 340, Baker Shields, Bourbon Co., KY
  • Males under five years of age - 3 (Harrison, Levi & Jane)
  • Male of 20 and under 30 - 1 (Harrison Baker Shields)
  • Females of 15 and under 20 - 1 (Matilda Richardson Shields)
  • Also on this census is listed a William Shields, on pg. 340. This William Shields was 20 yrs or under 30; had one male child under five years of age; had one male child 5-10 yrs of age; had one female 20-30 yrs of age. Who could this William be?
