In Reply to: Robert Mac Melton- Luther Melton an Pink Melton by Jimmie lee of 4151

This is not my Melton family - but I can be of some help to you I believe....

Robert M. Melton is buried at Kohlerlawn, Nampa, Idaho. If you look at this website, it has a picture of his headstone which says he was born 12/10/1897 and died 9/9/1961.

WWI Draft cards;
Robert Melton, born Dec 10, 1898, farming, living Mill Spring, Polk Co NC, wife Lillie, medium height and build, brown eyes, dark hair.
Pink Melton, born Oct 14, 1891, Polk Co NC. working at sawmill. has wife and 2 children (unnamed), medium height and build, grey eyes and brown hair.

1900 census: Green Hill twp, Rutherford Co NC: sheet 26B:
303-304: Joseph Melton, born Nov 1845, 54, married 37 years, NC, NC, NC, farmer
Elizabeth A., wife, born June 1839, 60, married 37 years, 4 children, 3 living, NC, NC, NC
John A., son, born Oct 1873, 26, married 4 years, farmer, NC, NC, NC
Mary S., dau in law, born Oct 1880, 19, married 4 years, 2 children, 2 living
Ada W., grandau, born Aug 1894, 5, NC, NC, NC
Furman L., grandson, born July 1898, 1, NC, NC, NC
304-305: Robert Melton, born June 1866, 33, married 6 years, farmer, NC, NC, NC
Sarah, wife, born Nov 1874, 25, married 6 years, 2 children, 2 living, NC, NC, NC
James M., son, born Dec 1885, 14, NC, NC, NC
Margaret, dau, born Apr 1889, 11, NC, NC< NC
Pinkney, son, born Oct 1891, 8, NC, NC, NC
Robert M., son, born Dec 1894, 5, NC, NC, NC
Laura J., dau, born Apr 1898, 2, NC, NC, NC

now 10 years later, in 1910, we find this jumbled fammily - some of the relationships here are not correct....and it is very faint. But for certain this is correct as Laura J is the correct age - and there is Luther finally.
1910 census: Rutherford Co NC:
Romeo Melton, 50, NC, NC, NC
Sallie, 31, NC, NC, NC
Robert, 15, son, NC, NC, NC
Laura J., 13, dau, NC, NC, NC
Willie, son, 10, NC, NC, NC
Luther, son, 6, NC, NC, NC
Della M., 2, dau, NC, NC, NC
Lillie B., 1 2/12, NC, NC, NC

1920 census: Rutherford Co NC: This is clearly the correct family
23-23: Robert R. Melton, 59, NC, NC, NC, farmer
Sallie, wife, 45, NC, NC, NC
Luther, 14, son, NC, NC, NC
Della May, daughter, 13, NC, NC, NC
Lillie Bell, daughter, 11, NC, NC, NC
Hattie, 10, NC, NC, NC
Vanna, daughter, 6 2/12, NC, NC, NC

According to NC birth records:
Vannie Lee Melton, born 7 Sept 1918, Polk Co NC, dau of Robert R. Melton and Sallie Pack.
Hattie Melton, born 4 Jan 1911, Polk Co NC, dau of R R Melton and Sallie Pack.
I do see Pink Melton as father to an unnamed child in 1915, mother was Eva Hensley
Lillie Belle Melton, 13 Jan 1909, Rutherford Co NC, dau of Robert Romeo Melton and Sallie Belle Pack. AHHH here is the Romeo!

Deaths from family search pilot:
K. Willie Melton, died Nov 13, 1926, Polk Co NC, age 24, born Polk Co NC. Died of Leukemia. married. Parents: R. R. Melton (born Polk Co NC) and Sallie Pack (born Polk Co NC), informant: R. R. Melton.
