James Pelton was the son of Phoebe and William Pelton. Pheobe, with her second husband, Abner Harrell, were early settlers in Saline County, Arkansas. I have substantial information on the Pelton family. James and Aurilla are my great-great-great-grandparents.
There is a Pelton Family Reunion in Benton, AR on Saturday, June 24th if you are interested.
