Gen. Blancett Shacklett was a great bear hunter.  In later years the old general's fondness for bear was the cause of a painful accident to his little daughter, Sophia.  He had captured a cub which he kept chained to a post in the yard.   After the bear was full grown it broke loose one day. Sophia was playing about the house.  The bear attacked the little girl.  Nearly all the skin was torn from her head and she received other painful injuries before her father killed the bear.   The child suffered for many weeks but she finally recovered.  In later life she and her husband, William Saunders, lived near Brandenburg.  From Early Times in Meade County.
