Family History

Descendant
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.
Descendant
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 5 Shockey Family Reunions (as of 2016) and looking forward to many more. I'll be helping with the Shockey Family Fellowship Inc. website and hoping to one day be on the board. I'm also helping with the Dyess Family website and starting an incorporation for that family group. 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. While I fully intend to be around to manage all my profiles for the next 50 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of my family members or to any of the other wonderful WikiTreers who have collaborated with me. 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,

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
