Shackelford later married on 13 October 1866 in Tallapoosa County to Thomas Jack Clayton, who was born about 1844, the son of Alexander and Jensie Canada Clayton.

Peggy shows Mary Ann to be the daughter of Jesse and Sarah Jones Canada, thus making her a sister of Edward Canada and Sallie Canada Umphries.
