Stephen Smith Kelton was married 3 times. He and the 3rd wife Catherine Beech Sexton were married December 1, 1864, and had several children...the oldest, Smith Alexander (b. 1868) and Thomas (b. 1869) were born in Tennessee, and the last 3, Maggie Jane, Benjamin Mayfield and Oliver Andrew were born in Benton County, Arkansas.

Oliver Andrew was my grandmother's father. He was born 3/4/1881. His father, Steven died the same year (in June) at the age of 76! Oliver's mother, Catherine continued to live there, and bought some land in 1884. Oliver Andrew married Janie Holmes on September 6, 1902 in Fort Smith, Sebastian County, Arkansas. He was 21 and she was 18. Janie was born in 1884 in Texas. Oliver Andrew and Janie had two children Pearly Mae and Roy. Pearly Mae is my Grandmother.
