1850 - Shackleton Hanson in USA?
« on: Monday 24 September 07 20:36 BST (UK) »
Can anyone with access to the US 1850 census find Shackleton Hanson on the 1850 US census?

He was born England in approx 1828. (On the 1860 census he is listed as Shackle)

Thanks in advance

Valerie

Thanks for this and my apologies too, as I already have this information (thanks to other rootschatters!)

I am specifically looking for the 1850 census or indeed 1870 onwards (I have the 1860)

I know Shackleton travelled to Philadelphia in 1849 as a courier (actually recorded as Currier). He was then back in England in April 1852 when he married his wife in Blackburn.

He can't be found in England in 1851 on the census - fellow rootschatters have even searched images of unfilmed census!

So I wonder if he is in USA in 1850 on the census?

No problem, rose
I am unable to locate him on the US 1850 census either, that's when I looked at immigration.
Hopefully, someone else will be able to locate him

Hi. Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but I found this thread and the site when doing a google search on the name Shackleton Hanson - I have a photo album of my great-grandmother's and it has a photo labeled "Shackleton Hanson (sent from America) Billy's grandfather", and I've been trying to find if he is related to my great-great-grandmother, who was a Mary Hanson.

Can you tell me anything more about the Shackleton Hanson you were searching for?

Shackleton is actually my friends ancestor. We know he attended a quaker school here in the UK - Ackworth in Yorkshire. I'll need to check with my friend who he married and get back to you.

Thanks, I'd be grateful.

Incidentally, you shouldn't assume that a Currier is the same as a courier. It could be either a leather tanner, or somebody who curried horses.

Hi,

I see they were in Illinois in 1860 so I wonder if this could be Shackleton,

U.S. Civil War Soldiers, 1861-1865

Name: Shakilton HANSON
Side: Union 
Regiment State/Origin: Illinois 
Regiment Name: 49 Illinois Infantry 
Company: E 
Rank In: Private   
Rank Out: Private 

Film Number: M539 roll 37 
 

and


Civil War Pension Index: General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934
Shackleton HANSON
E 49 Ill Inf
Date of ??:  1869 ? ? ?
Class: Invalid
Application? no:  42555
Certificate no:  29213


'Where to go from here:
After locating an ancestor in the Civil War Pension Index, researchers are urged to request a copy of the casefile referred to by the index. According to the National Archives, "...the number and type of documents in the Civil War and later series vary greatly from file to file; they are often numerous. The documents of greatest genealogical interest include the declaration of the veteran, the declaration of the widow, the statement of service from the War or Navy Department, the personal history questionnaire, and documents relating to the termination of pensions."

Photocopies of casefile contents are currently requested by submitting NATF Form 85 to the National Archives and Records Administration, Attn: NWCTB, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20408-0001. You can request NATF Form 85 by submitting your name and postal address, the form number (NATF Form 85), and the number of forms you require (limit 6 per request) to [email protected]'

Daisy
