I am searching for the parents of Lewis Thomas Shelton. I have
been told by family members his father's name was Joseph Lafayette
Shelton and that he was from Tennessee. Lewis/Louis Thomas Shelton
was born in 1865 in AR according to census records, but family members
say that he was born in TN. Has anyone run across either of these
two Sheltons in your research??

Hi my grandfather was Godfrey Steve Shelton born in Utica Ok to Steven and Ida Shelton. My grandfather was a twin to a sister Gertie. They were born 1/15/1917. They had two older brothers Ocie Cecil Shelton b 8/18/1909 and Oscar 3/22/1911. Oscar died in 1920-1921. Ocie, Godfrey and Gertie all went to school in Durant, Bryant Co Ok from 1921-1930. Is there any connection to the Shelton family you are looking for? Thanks Terri

Hi Pat,
I too am looking for a Joseph L Shelton, His first wife was a Rosetta Johns(t)on, his second was Minerva McKinney McCall.

He was rumored to have been born in Arkansas, and came to Texas Via Alabama, Louisiana. He has been found in a Kaufman County Census, and a Nacodoches County Texas Census with Minerva as his wife stating they were married in 1895. His Tomb Stone states that he was born August 22, 1861 and died in a buggy accident in Carthage Texas on January 30, 1917. I am unsure if he is the Joseph you are looking For as many of the kids at (my great Aunts and Uncles)have him listed as Joe/Joseph/J. L./Louis/Lewis/some even say his middle name was Lafayette. I can find a Birthcertificate but I am not able to purchase it for my Great Aunt Lizzie (Emma Elizabeth Shelton) Born in Kaufman, Kaufman County, Texas, USA.

If we are related, please contact me at

Hello, I saw your poting on the sheltons and my Grand Mothers mother was Mary Elizabeth Shelton. I don't know where she is from or any kin. I do know she was married to William F. Stovall and they lived in the Ft. Worth Texas area. My Grand mother was born some where in Mississippi. Lots of unknown questions. I would appreciate your help. Thanks Jimmie

He also used the initials J L and J S L he died January 30, 1917(or that is when they buried him). I have a tentative father for him but I am not sure of and may not be correct:
