Here is the information on the Land Grants and marriages:

Herschel Shackleford, Jr., his father and grandfather, were reared in the town of Shackleford, Virginia, in King & Queen County. All records for King and Queen County and Glousester County were destroyed. They are the ancestors of slaves owned by the Shacklefords who took the Shackleford name when they were freed.
