Almost all of the surnames Shatley came from Wilkes County, NC. Andrew Shatterly, born about 1752, who died between April and August of 1817 in Wilkes County, married Catarina, born about 1860, who was living in 1842. He had a daughter Mary who is estimated to have been born about 1802.
The name Shatterly changed to Shatley when the family moved from Guilford County, NC to Wilkes County, NC soon after 1800.
Mary Shatterley married Joel Sparks in Yadkin County, NC (next to Wilkes County) on 23 Nov 1846. This Joel Sparks was born in 1784 in Yadkin County, and was probably the son of Matthew Sparks born about 1752 in Frederick County, MD.
The name Solomon was used several times in the Shatterly family in Guilford County, NC, which adds a bit of credence to this story. The Shatterly family was German and most of the children married into other German lines.
Andrew had a son Solomon Shatterly, born about 1792 in Guilford County, who married on 13 Dec 1813 in Wilkes County, Susan Shore. They were listed in the 1820 Wilkes county census with no children, and in the 1840 census they were in Smith TWP, Barry County, MO. The 1850 census listed Susan Shatterly living alone. Perhaps Mary and Solomon moved together to MO. Maybe you can tell me more about that. The 1840 census there spelled the name Shatterby.
