It is a mystery, but my guess is that he is descended from a Shockley who married a Simpkins. I've looked at the Simpkins marriages in Carroll but don't find a connection. I also checked the latter half of the 19th century in Surry Co, NC.
His apparent namesake, Legrand Shockley, (1819 - 1864)was a son of John Shockley and Phoebe Scudders and married Rachel Harriett Stone in 1847. This may give other researchers a lead to go on. I'm coming up dry.
