I have obtained her obit of 1981 and she list she lived in Nebo, Ky and was a member of the Nebo Methodist Church. Does anyone remember her? She moved to Jacksonville Florida and died there. She was the mother of the "Shelton Gang " of Illinois.
Does any one remember her living in Nebo???

I'm confused about when Agnes died. According to the 1880 Wayne County, Illinois Census, she was born in 1862. I know the family went to Florida abt. 1950. If Agnes didn't die until 1981, she would have been 119 yrs. old. I'd appreciate it if you could clear this up for me.
Thanks so much,

I'm not sure if this is the same Agnes Shelton I have been researching, but if so then she married Ervin Shelton. She was born March 29, 1907. If this is not her please let me know, thanks.

No, Cathy, this wouldn't be your Agnes. I'm sorry. This Agnes was Agnes Gaither. She married Benjamin Shelton.
(By the way, I'm not related to the above line.) I do have another Agnes Shelton in my file, but she doesn't fit your info either. She was b. 1766 in VA, married Joseph B. Arnett, and died in 1855 in Kentucky. (She's not my line of Shelton's either.)
Best Wishes in your continued search.

Agnes Gaither Shelton was the mother of the Illinois Shelton Gang in the 1920-30-40 era. Her husband was Benjamin Marsh Shelton and they lived in Illinois. But, her obit said she was a member of the Nebo church and I wondered what the connection was here in hopkins county? I am of the William Shelton and Hannah Yates line and so is the Shelton gang.
They are about 5th cousins, I think.

Thanks for the reply.

It's interesting that I have a Benjamin Franklin Shelton b: 1828 in Union Co., Ky. married a Sigler in 1846.

I realize that this is before your time frame. Benjamins father Elijah Franklin Shelton died in Webster Co. in 1866.

I have much more on this line if you care to pursue it.
