I am searching for a SHELTON family and have very little information and no dates...Just a name of MOLLIE SHELTON.

MOLLIE married JAMES STEPHEN ELLIXSON aka JOHN L. ELLISON and they lived in Pittsylvania Co., VA.

I received documentation from the pension papers for JAMES and found that he married second to MOLLIE SHELTON and that she divorced him...MOLLIE was still alive in June of 1914 when JAMES passed away.
James's first wife died after the June 1900 census and before May 1901.

In 1910 census JAMES was living with a HOGAN family and was listed as a boarder. I'm assuming they married about 1901 and she divorced him before 1910.

I would be grateful for any help you can give me and if you can suggest anyone else I can contact I would appreciate it.
Many Thanks,

I have a Mollie Shelton. She was the sister of my great grandmother and the daughter of Harriet Hines Shelton & Andrew Jackson F. Shelton. If I am not mistaken she lived in Altavista, Va "Pittsylvania Co."

I have a marriage for John Ellison and Mollie B Shelton, d/o Andrew Jackson Shelton and Harriet Hines as Oct 3 1903. However, that said, the birth date for John Ellison looks like 1821 while she was born abt 1882..... which is a large difference. Did they divorce? Her grandparents (John Hines and Sarah Mayhew) had married in Dec 1834 and divorced in 1875. With that much of an age difference, if I have it right, did he just die and James is a different fellow or did she divorce him because of such a huge age difference? Perhaps I just have their age incorrect?
