    • in 1860, his son Amos (1846) age 14, is living with Amos Clinton, older brother.
    Notes 
    • "Annie Payne Shelton settled in Murry Co, Tenn. Shelton is Scotch. Payne is Irish and Wilson Welch. I presume that is the Great Grand parents. Grandfather Shelton settled in Tenn. had born to them 8 children in all they were all reared in at state. Two of the daughters married and remained there. Aunt Kiziah and Aunt Polly. My Grandmother Susan came to Texas with the family also Uncle Washington. Father of Tom, Amos, George, and others. Uncle Amos your father. Aunt Maria Carraway, aunt Tibitha Jones mother of Barton, Lura, Annie and Irene. Aunt Martha who married a Wallis reared 3 sons. Dan, Frank, and Robert. Then a Mr. Hartwell reared 2 sons and one daughter. Will, Albert, Roxie.
      "The Sheltons first settled in San Augustine lived there about 3 years moved to Nacogdoches. Was there at the time of the Battle of San Jacinto, remained there 3 or 4 years and moved to Chambers Co. All but my Granmother first married a John Kirk. He was killed at the Battle of San Jacinto. She was left with 2 babies one just an infant, died at 2 or 3 months of age. Kirk was Aunt Mary Sherman's father.
      "Aunt Mariah Carraway and her husband settled at Neches. Reared 2 sons and one daughter. Jeff is the only name I know. He died and she married a Mr. Nelson, they reared 8 boys and 2 girls but I don't know but 2 names among them. Dwight wan Houston two years ago. Cousin Robert Willis told the other name. Clinton a Doctor. That was in 1910. Cousin Robert told me if I could get in touch with you I could add something to what he told me, and also referred me to Uncle Washington's older daughter Mrs. C.F. Jones who he said lived near Stephenville, Erath, Co. But he could not give her rural no. so I never did write to her. He said she was older than he so I don't suppose there is any use trying now. I have Cousin Roberts old letter here by me copying what I can from it. And I did the same for him. He has forgotten all he wrote to me. He also referred me to Irene Fulks, but she is another one I never did get in touch with as well as your own dear self. So now dear, I hope you get something out of this anyway. Now I am going to take a clear sheet of paper and write your Father's war record on a clean page.
      "So bye."

      hello out there.

      Is anyone searching for JOHN SHELTON THE TAILOR, born in King William Co. Va., who lived in Richmond Va, and Knox Co TN for a while, finally setling down in Maury Co. TN.? He died in 1835. I know he had parents and siblings and cousins.
      Is anyone looking for him?

      His wife was Elizabeth, (last name unknown.)

      Sincerely, Alex Ko

      Hi 'Lumoto"

      I have a family which has such similarity to yours I thought I would send it on to you.

      George Shelton b, abt 1809 VA md Dolly b. abt 1815 TN Children:

      Mary E. b abt 1834,
      Nancy W. b abt 1836,
      James J. b. abt 1838,
      Kisiah P. b. abt 1843
      Geo. W. b. abt 1846
      Tabitha J. b. abt 1848

      Source: 1850 US Census, Dickson Co. TEnn, #655, p.270

      Don't know if this will help but it certainly has four children who have names very similar to your George Washington and Annie Payne family.

      _____________________
      to Shelton List 4/7/99
      My 3rd Great-Grandfather was George Wilson SHELTON, b. 1822 TN, m. Nancy Vincent RICE, ended up in Johnson Co. IL; I show George's parents as:
      William SHELTON Jr. b. 1796 and Martha "Patsy" Payne.
      His parents William Shelton, m. 1786 in Pittsylvania Co. VA to Martisha Taylor.

      Sounds like we're "family".

      It's been quite a few years since I've posted a query for this line, so hopefully somebody is out there now who knows the previous generation for them. There seem to be a lot of GW Sheltons and even Shelton/Payne marriages. I'm looking for the ones who setted in Chambers Co, TX 1840-41. My line extends thru their dau Susan Shelton and her 1st husb, John Kirk.
      Thanks

I'm still looking for this family; however I have just made a connection with these Sheltons in Chambers county, TX with the Sheltons in Tennessee Colony, Anderson county, Texas, connected with the Faires/Farris family, though at present not all the questions are answered. if you're interested in this family, contact me.
