Documents:
From Stephen Shifflett of High Top Farm, in Rockingham County: His Descendants and Story Compiled by Barbara Shifflett Hensley and L.F. Shifflett. 1998.

In the spring of 1902, Moses F. Powell (who had bought up the shares of 2 of Stephen's children's heirs) filed suit against Stephen Shifflett's heirs and others, including Archibald Roach who had purchased the High Top Farm from Gibbons & Hopkins in 1896, and Daniel Shifflett who had received half interest in the High Top Farm in 1898, along with 100a. known as the Warkin Land. Daniel S. Shifflett, no close relation to Stephen, had married Archibald Roach's daughter, Melvina F., on Dec. 9, 1886. Daniel was living on this tract of land when the National Park took the land, for which he received $3,053.

Testimony of Archibald Roach, age 70+

Q: State your age, etc:
A: Seventy years of age, reside near Swift Run, and I have been farming all my life.

Q: How long have you known this tract of land?
A: Well, I have known it, I reckon, for forty years.

Q: How long, I ask you, have you known it?
A: I have known this tract all of my life time, ever since I have been big enough to know anything.

Q: By whom was it owned when you first knew it?
A: Uncle Stephen Shifflet

Q: When did he die?
A: The last year of the Civil War, I believe.

Q: Where was he living at the time of his death?
A: He was living, I believe, at Mr. Harnsberger's, down on the Bottom.
. . .
Q: Had Stephen Shifflet ever lived on the tract of land in controversy here?
A: Yes, sir, he lived on the tract of land when I was a little bit of a boy.
. . .
Q: Who was Layton Shifflett?
A: Me and him was Cousins

Q: What kin was he to Stephen Shifflett?
A: Layton Shiflet's mother was Stephen Shiflett's daughter
. . .
Cross examination:

Q: How much did you get for the timber that was taken off of this land?
A: I don't know exactly how much. We didn't haul but a few cords. It was so far that we couldn't make anything off of it. We had to haul it from High Top clear down to Elkton.
. . .
Q: (speaking about bark that was cut) Who did you sell it to?
A: I sold it ot my son-in-law for firty cents a cord--to both my sons-in-law.

Q: Who were they?
A: Salley Shifflett and Sam Shifflett
. . .
Q: Stephen Shifflett left no will, did he?
A: No, sir, not as I know of. I know he didn't that I heard talked of.

Q: And all you know of that is what you heard Layton Shifflett say? [Q. refers to the fact that Stephen had paid security for Pemberton S. and therefore Pemberton had already received his share of the estate.]
A: Well, that is what I said. I refused to go in with him and then he told me there was no danger because he said--he called him Pemberton--he said Pemberton's part--Grand-daddy paid his part for security money, which I believed to be so.

Re-direct:

Q: Who was your mother, Mr. Roach?
A: She was a Shiflett

Q: What kin, if any to Stephen Shifflett?
A: Stephen Shifflett's daughter was my mother's mother.

Q: Stephen Shifflett, then, was your great-grandfather?
A: Yes, sir and my mother was his grand-daughter. That is, Stephen Shifflett's sister was my grandmother.

Archibald also states his father d. in 1857, and his mother died later.

Comments on the suit from Olen Morris:
  1. The Stephen Shiflett he is talking about is the one married to Joanna McDaniel. He died in 1865.
  2. Who is Layton Shiflett? he said "my cousin". I believe this to be true. He stated that Layton's mother was Stephen's daughter, which is correct (her name is Phoebe).
  3. The son-in-laws: Salley and Sam Shiflett. (1) Salley = James Saley Shifflett married to Columbia Roach 8 Apr 1877. (2) Sam = Samuel Shifflett married to Sarah Elizabeth Roach on 20 Mar 1876.
  4. The Pemberton Shifflett, is the Brother of Layton Shifflett.
  5. His mother is a Shiflett-yes her name was Elizabeth Shifflett b 1805-1815 d. 8 Dec 1885, Rockingham Co. VA

    I think the statement he made "Yes, Sir, and my mother was his grand-daughter" is correct, I believe he may have gotten confused when is said "That is, Stephen Shifflett's sister is my grandmother", what he probably meant to say was "Stephen Shifflett's daug was my grandmother". Until this point in the testimony everything he says seems correct. So I wonder if he was getting his relationships confused (as we all do at times!). Archibald's statement that his father died in 1857 appears correct based on the census records. 1850 Rockingham Co. VA Census

    From the census we see that Calus Roach passed away sometime during the 1850's, which is what Archibald stated.

    Some time back, Barbara Hensely (co-author of the "Shiflett" book) sent me a note that she had found an obit for Elizabeth Roach in Rockingham Co. VA. Elizabeth died 8 Dec 1885. She was the d/o William Shiflett & Mittie. I would say that Mittie is probably the d/o of Stephen Shifflett and his first wife. I don't have the "hard" proof needed to back this up, other than Archibald's statement "Stephen Shifflet's daughter is my mother's mother. If in fact Mittie is a sister to Phoebe Shifflett (Stephen's daughter), then Archibald and Layton would be 1st cousins once removed!
Comments on the testimony from Larry Shifflett:
Arch Roach relationship to Stephen Shiflett. In the chancery cause Arch Roach contradicts himself in two different ways. He says that Elizabeth Roach is the daughter of Stephen's daughter and then he says that Elizabeth Roach is the daughter of Stephen's sister. He also calls Stephen "Uncle Stephen" and the sons of Stephen "Uncle". Elizabeth Roach's mother according to her death record is Mitta Shiflett, no father listed. We believe that Mitta was probably the sister of Stephen Shiflett, because if Elizabeth Roach was off one of his daughters, she or her mother would have been an heir in the chancery cause, as the heirs are well documented.
