SHELTON FAMILY:

(I have added some corrections I received from Shelton researchers in red. K.V.)

These Shelton Families, like many other Miller county pioneers, settled first in North Carolina. Then they started migrating through Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois and then into Missouri.
I am not researching the Sheltons, I have just gathered information that is available for those who are. There seems to be three different lines of Sheltons. Two, I believe are related because they named their children the same. I have seperated them into the townships they lived in.
The Sheltons have married into my family and have been associated with all my lines. Every fourth Thursday of the month, I eat dinner with three of Allen Shelton's daughters. Allen is George "Wash" Shelton's son. He is buried at the church where we eat dinner and where a good number of Sheltons settled.
There are several Sheltons who are members of this LIST and that have done extensive research on their particular family. They have always been very generous with information. If I had a specific question, I would send it to this LIST (the MOMILLER List, KV) as an e-mail.

1840 census:
There were four families of Sheltons living in Miller County in the 1840 census:

1840 census:------------------------------
David Shelton in a family of nine, four males and five females.

1840 census:
John Shelton in a family of two, him & his wife Elizabeth. John was born in North Carolina about 1778 and died 7/31/1855 in Missouri. Elizabeth was born in Tennessee about 1790. She died after the year 1855.
In the 1840 census they were listed as:
John age between 60-70
Elizabeth (Smith) age between 50-60
(The family tradition holds that her name was Holland, there is no solid evidence of the John Shelton who married Elizabeth Smith in Grainger Co. Tenn. in 1800 is the same John living in Miller co. in 1840 and Pulaski in 1850. )

Their children are believe to be: William, Mary/Polly married Jonathan
Hale,

William Henderson.
