In "A History of the Methodist Episcopal church", Vol. IV, a list of preachers' names reports Shadrack Chaney - Received 1821(24 yrs.), Located 1829.
In "The Monongalia Story, A Bicentennial History" by Earl Core he reports that in 1822 (&1823 by Preston County, WV history) Shadrick Cheney (26 years old) was a Circuit rider in the Redstone Circuit, Monongalia District which began in 1813 and ended in 1824 when the county churches of the M.E. faith went under the Monongalia Circuit, Pittsburgh Conference.The Monongalia Circuit extended from the Pennsylvania line southward into West Virginia. In 1827 & 1828 he was a rider in that Circuit. In 1838 & 1839 Shadrack traveled the Kingwood Circuit which included Morgantown, W. VA. As the population increased the district boundaries changed and were renamed while remaining in the general area of the District of West Augusta running from SW Pennsylvania through central West Virginia.
When Shadrach was 28 years old he married Mary Squires who was 20 years old. They had 12 children in the next 23 years, including a set of twins.
In the 1850 Census record of Harrison County, Ohio, Shadrach's occupation is that of a M.E. Clergyman.
According to his daughter Sarah's obituary, he was a minister at Mt. Hope M.E. Church.
By 1860 Shadrach had moved his family to Christian Co., Illinois where he became a farmer. The value of his Personal Estate is $500.00 with the value of his Real Estate being $1,600.00. In the Christian County Marriage Books, Shadrack performed two weddings in 1862 and a third and final wedding on February 14, 1864 at the age of 67.

Assault Fatal To Greenbrier Lady
LEWISBURG, April 30 - Mrs. Maxie Jane Kelly, of Muddy Creek Mountain, widow of the late Sam Kelly, died at a Ronceverte hospital this afternoon at 1:45 of a compound skull fracture.
The woman's injury allegedly was the result of an attack made on her last Wednesday night between 8:30 and 9 o'clock by Fred Lewis and his sister, Edith Young, Negroes, of Leslie.
Mrs. Kelly was taken to the hospital last Wednesday night in an unconscious condition. She never regained consciousness to give an account of the assault made on her.
Her daughter, Mrs. Margaret Kelly, who made her home with her mother, went to the office of Prosecuting Attorney Nickell Kramer here the next morning and swore out a warrant for Lewis and his sister for an assault and battery charge. She told the prosecuting attorney that the Negroes has come to the home Wednesday night. Mrs. Young, she said, knocked at the door and asked for some liniment, and that while her mother was standing in the doorway Lewis struck her over the head.
The pair was arrested and placed in jail, and when Mrs. Kelly's condition became worse her daughter obtained warrants against the pair for assault with intent to kill. They are being held in the county jail to await grand jury action.
Prosecuting Attorney Kramer and State Troopers Shirley Clinton and W. M. Shanklin are investigating the case to determine if the alleged assault resulted in Mrs. Kelly's death.
She was born at Lewisburg on September 22, 1894.
Surviving are two daughters, Margaret and Cora, at home; two sons, Colie, of Muddy Creek Mountain, and Sam, of White Sulphur Springs; five brothers, John Hunter, Lewisburg; George and Hubert, Dawson; Renick, Goshen, Va., and Charles, White Sulphur Springs; three sisters, Mrs. Lilly Walton, White Sulphur Springs; Mrs. Harvey Arbaugh, Lewisburg; and Mrs. Lula Jones, Lawton.
Funeral arrangements were incomplete tonight.
