I notice on the Lamar map there is shown a Shockey"s Prairie just south and east of Novice. I am interest to see if this could be connected to Henry Shockey that married my GGG GF Richard F Giddens's sister Rachel Giddens 1 Oct 1827 in Pike Co., Ky. The Giddens family moved to ILL, then to Red River County around 1833.
I found in Lamar County records where there was a deed/bond filed in 1843 between Henry Shockey(and wife) and his father-in-law, Reuben Giddens (Gideon).
Any information will be appreciated
