I'm not a Felty researcher, but I think I can add a bit of information for one of the people in this posting. An A.G. Felty married Flora L. England on 22 Oct 1921, probably in Loudon County, Tennessee. He was enumerated in the 1920 census in Loudon County, single, age 37, boarder, born in Virginia, name Melvin Felty. He and Flora were enumrated in the 1930 census in Loudon County. He was married, age 46, head, married at 37, born in Virginia, name Melvin Felty. She was Flora, married, age 30, wife, married at 21, born in Tennessee, name Flora. She was the daughter of James Wesley England and Eliza Jane Purkey. The 1930 census listed children Hastel son age 6, Ora son age 3 5/12, Billie son age 9/12.

There was a 1900 census entry for Wythe County, Virginia in the message to which I am responding. It listed M.A.G. Felty son born Sep 1883. So I'm sure his name must have been Melvin A.G. Felty. Furthermmore, there was an 1870 census entry for Wythe County, Virginia in the message to which I'm responding. It listed Melvin's father D.B. Felty (certainly, Denison B. Felty), and Denison had a brother listed in 1870 named Albert G. Felty. So it's not too much of a stretch to suspect that Flora England's husband was Melvin Albert G. Felty.
