Sally Johnson and Shadrick Moore married 27 September 1823 Maury County, Tennessee.[1]

Shadrick/Shedrick Moore and family had migrated to Western Kentucky by 1833, when Shadrick was listed on the Livingston County Tax List.[2]  That year he was listed with one white male only. He owned no land and had no horse. 

Shadrack appeared on the 1840 Livingston County census[3].  Crittenden County was created from Livingston County in 1842 and the Moore family next appears on the 1850 Crittenden County census.[4]

According to his death record, Shadrick Moore died 10 April 1874 of pneumonia at the age of 80.[5] His father and mother were listed as L. and S. Moore.
