William Thomas Shanklin and Laura Melissa Hollis- Hickman KY

Looking for information on William Thomas Shanklin's parents. He was born around 1847 in Tennessee and married Laura Melissa Hollis on November 16, 1879 in Cannon Co TN. His children were Emma, William Thomas, Laura Melissa, and James Lawson.

My grandfather told me a story about a blacksmith (whom I believe was William Thomas Shanklin Sr.) who was aquitted of murder in Hickman KY, this is the only history that I know of him. It is an interesting story if anyone is interested.

I am looking for information about his parents, brothers and sisters, anything... I'm trying to trace past his generation and am not having any luck.
