Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 26, 1794
Death: Nov. 2, 1874

Barbara is a daughter of Benjamin W. Shacklett and Elizabeth Ashcraft who are buried in nearby Meadville Cemetery.

Barbara Shacklett was married to James Board Dowell on February 11, 1813 in Hardin County, Kentucky by minister Joseph Smith. They were the parents of 12 children. The place of burial for their son, Nehemiah Dowell, and daughter, Mary Susan Dowell (she married Edmund Stith), are presently unknown. Further details about them are shown here.

Barbara and James had a son, Nehemiah "Nim" Dowell, who died during the Civil War. Nim, who had chosen the Union side, had been killed by Confederates while attempting to leave Texas.

James and Barbara had a daughter, Mary Susan Dowell, born 1825-26, who was the 2nd wife of Edmund J. Stith, born 1814, died 1860 in Hardin County, Kentucky. Stith researchers state that Mary died in Texas, further details unknown at this time. However, it is known that 2 of Mary's children, James Richard Stith (1846-1937) and Sarah "Sallie" (Stith) Doshier (1857-1933), are buried in Nocona Cemetery in Nocona, Montague County, Texas.

Barbara Dowell's granddaughter, Dr. Cinderella Dowell (1862-1961) of Bowling Green, Kentucky, wrote that she became a doctor because her maternal grandmother was a practicing physician.
