DESCENDANTS OF ELIZABETH GRAVES AND GREEN BERRY SHUFFLEBARGER OF POPE CO. & SALINE CO., IL

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Elizabeth (“Betsy”) Graves (1) was born 28 Aug. 1830 in Pope Co., IL, and died 26 July 1907 in Carrier Mills, Saline Co., IL.  She first married Green Berry Shufflebarger, son of Simon Shufflebarger and Hannah Beanard, on 6 March 1848 in Pope Co., IL.  He was born 1824-1825 and died 28 June 1854, both in Pope Co., IL.  All their children were born in IL, probably all in Pope Co.

She married second John Jenkins on 15 March 1860 in IL.  He was born about 1825 in IL, and probably died before 1868, possibly in the Civil War.  She married third Thomas Parks on 22 Oct. 1868 in IL.  Elizabeth was in the 1850 census for Pope Co., IL, with Green B. Shufflebarger and daughter Sarah.  She was in the 1860 census for Pope Co., IL, with her second husband John Jenkins and all 3 of her Barger children.  They were living next to Russell S. Barger and his family in 1860.

The Shufflebarger family may be descended from Jacob Schaufelberger (of Shufflebarger), born 1726-27, died 1801 in Montgomery Co., VA, married Margaretha Moll.  Jacob may have been born in Switzerland or Germany, although some people have said Holland.  There is a Barger Family History Society that may be able to help anyone researching this line.

There is almost certainly a close connection between Elizabeth Graves, Sarah Ann Graves of gen. 451, and James Graves of gen. 524.  (R‑1)
