A Sarah D. Johnson married  a Richard Shackelford in Spotsylvania County in 1808, moved to Fluvanna County.  Oldest son's name Henry Johnston Shackelford, who moved to Mississippi and second son named Richard Dabney Shackelford, who moved to Amherst County in 1860.  Sarah D. Shackelford on 1850 cencus with son in Fluvanna county...could this be the same person?
It seems most likely to me that Sarah D. Shackleford is the same person as Sarah Dabney Johnston. It's a little puzzling on where Richard Shackelford is at the time of the 1850 US Census.

Not sure that Sarah's maiden name is Johnson or Johnston.
Sarah D. Shackelford was listed on 1850 census of Fluvanna county with her son Richard D. Shackelford.  Richard Shackelford died before 1840; there are deeds exchanged and recorded in Fluvanna county by the brothers to settle estate. Son Henry Johnston Shackelford lived in Mississippi.
