David Shiflet

Submitted by: June Mitchell ajunemitchell@insight.rr.com

Comments: My line is through David's grandson, Hosea. My father told me Hosea's father was George Powell, but I am still trying to verify that.

Ed. note: I found an Ann Florence Shifflett while browsing through the Shiflett book. Her parents are listed as Columbia Shifflett and George Powell and her birth fits in the list of Columbia's children and I have added her in. This supports the oral history that Hosea's father was George Powell.

Wife of East Rockingham Man Was injured Wednesday--Failed to Respond to Medical Treatment

Mrs. Warnie Shifflett wife of Hosea Shifflett of near Yanacy, died at 6:30 o'clock last evening as a result of injuries received Wednesday morning, when she was kicked by a colt. The colt's hoof struck Mrs. Shifflett in the abdomen causing internal injuries. Dr. L. M. Lewis was called, but Mrs. Shifflett's injuries were such that she did not respond to medical treatment. Mrs. Shifflett was Miss. Warnie Coleman and was about fifty years old. The circumstances of her death are particularly sad and the family has the sympathy of a wide circle of friends. Surviving Mrs. Shifflett besides her husband are five children, Irvine and Ernest Shifflett, Mrs. Robert Sipe. Miss. Atha and Elizabeth Shifflett all of near Yancey. Funeral arrangements had not been completed by last night.
