Published my first book on 1 Aug 2023 called "Family History Questions."

Family History

My interest in finding out my family history started in Mrs. Odom's class at Harlem Middle School. The assignment was find out the origin of your surname and recreate your coat of arms. I found a Shockey in the English origins but could never find a coat of arms. So I created a shield with a lightning bolt hitting a key - "Shoc-key". *wink* It wasn't until years later in 2003 that I really started my family database to find out that Shockey was the Americanized version of my surname.
I now enjoy meeting all my cousins no matter how distant. I've started three groups on Facebook one for my Shockey cousins, one for my Sperry's, and another for just my maternal side. I've also attended Shockey Family Reunions (since 2012) and looking forward to many more. I'll be working on the Shockey Family Fellowship Inc. website, and newsletter, and am a board member (since 2021). Attended my first Dyess Reunion on 29 Oct 2016.

In the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up having to be deleted.

My own personal profile will be left to an active family member and/or Emma, Misty, or Kaite to tend and weed. I'll also have an obituary set up on an unlisted "free-space" to be updated, made public and linked to my profile after my passing. Charlotte Shockey's Obituary

Hi Charlotte: Just a reminder that stickers of One Name Studies should go beneath the Biography header, and that there are two different stickers. One for members (i.e. WT members), and one for profiles. See

Hi Charlotte!

I was going back through my "to- do" list and found out that we can't find the owners of a few private profiles of direct ancestors stating they are living. I'm not sure if we are 2nd or 4th cousins but I'm going to list the data below and if by chance you have the profiles I'm hoping you can add the data and possibly open them up or connect them to their mother etc as I keep almost setting up profiles for them (several dozen sources) but then remember they have (inaccessible) spots: These are children of Cora Lee Smith and John William "JW" McCombs:

  • John William Smith McCombs: April 20, 1925 - May 12, 2015
  • Quick Findagrave link: [1]
  • Carl Daniel McCombs (Sr ) - August 19, 1928 - November 24, 1995
  • Quick Findagrave Link: [2]
  • Since his death occurred in the 1990's here is a link to the Ongoing Social security source as well:
  • "United States Social Security Death Index," database, FamilySearch ( : 8 January 2021), Carl D Mccombs, 24 Nov 1995; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

I'd hate for someone else to create duplicate or more profiles for these men and their increasing families because they don't show up when searching by name or birth date. Cheers! Becky Elizabeth Simmons-11603

Also- I am happy to add sources and write a bio for either if not yet done since I've got the information in front of me.

- Cheers! Becky Elizabeth Simmons-11603

I may have sent a PM the other day. You have Clontz in your tree. I am interested in a Clontz Y-DNA test you admin. The person is a direct descendant of Hieronymus Glantz who came to America in 1732 with a child who became John Michael Clontz and had a son Jeremiah Clontz in 1756 and another son in 1760, and these two boys are revolutionary war soldiers. The Y-DNA is J-M172, which matches one of my other cousins. I would like to talk about Glantz/Claunch/Clonts/Clontz lineage.

If you are the admin for this Y test it would really help to join the Glantz project on The Claunch people are all there. Thanks.

BTW, J-M172 has a really interesting relationship with R-M269 (celtic) which my Claunch line happens to be.

Hi Charlotte,

Charlotte and Paula are 7th cousins four times removed. Strangely this is not through the Brewer line so when all connections are entered on the Brewer line there may be a relationship there also. Paula

Thanks for joining Team Roses for the CNat and adding 363 profiles to the big tree. I know how strapped for time you were, but you still knocked it out of the park!
Hi Charlotte,

I would like to join the Schindler One Name Project. My great grandfather was Henry E Schindler. Thanks, Kristy Shubert-North
