1829-1887

1829, New York. She is said to have been from Mount Morris.

January 8, 1887, Cresco, Iowa.

Oak Lawn Cemetery, Cresco, Iowa.

The 1880 census lists Caroline, age 51, and her husband Joseph in La Porte, Indiana. This age would give her a computed birth year of 1829. However, her obituary in the Iowa Plain Dealer, January 13, 1887, gave her age as 55, which would yield a birth year of 1832. Research in New York, her reported birth place, will probably be required to resolve the discrepancy.

Smith reports more than 400 of Shacklock’s songs were published.
