  • Notes 
    • Meigs County Marriages 1850 - 1900

      In this compilation of marriage certificates from various sources, there is a record of a Nancy Stanley married to Asal Shamblin on 9 Jan 1853 in Meigs County. This is undoubtedly the marriage of Nancy C. to Asal Shamblin. She would have been about 21 years old at the time of her marriage. There are several other Shamblin families in the adjoining county of McMinn, as well as some in Polk county just south of McMinn. Asheal C. Shamblin appears on the 1850 Census living with his parents and siblings. They were farm # 191 on the list and Nancy was living with her mother and siblings at farm #171. They undoubtedly knew each other when they were going to school.

      Migration

      Joyce Reese, a researcher and historian of Meigs, McMinn and Rhea counties stated that a number of Meigs County families left in 1858 and migrated to Arkansas. In 1860 we find a land registration made out to Asael C. Shamblin of Sevier County, Arkansas, dated 2 July 1860. The land was located in section 5, twp 9S, range 32W, and meridian 5th. The 1860 Census shows Asal living with William Shamblin, age 61 in Monroe, Sevier, Arkansas. There is no mention of Nancy and William and Asal are the only members of the household. Had Nancy died before this census and Asal had to live with a relative? Did they divorce? Not likely.
