In Reply to: Victoria Melton/Daniel C. Claywell Marriage 1898 KY by Marilyn R Monson of 4152

According to the website: under Kentucky marriages it shows Victoria Melton, daughter of J.A. Melton and Melton (no mothers given name) marrying to Daniel Claywell on 30 Nov 1898, Cumberland Co KY as you mentioned.

1900 census, Cumberland Co KY: I see on the same page that Daniel Clawell with wife Victoria and son John Clawell are shown on (as well as the same page that Daniel's parents are shown) are:
57-58 John A. Melton, born May 1820, 80, married 25 years, KY,KY,KY, farm laborer
Mary A., wife, born Apr 1863, 37, married 25 years, KY,KY,KY
William A., son, born July 1879, 20, KY,KY,KY
Tom B., son, born July 1885, 14, KY,KY,KY
Marvin, son, born Sept 1888, 11, KY,KY,KY
Minnie L., dau, born Jan 1893, 7, KY,KY,KY

John's birth is shown incorrectly however - see the 1910 census:
1910 census: Whetstone, Cumberland, KY:
John A. Melton, 52, married 1 time, 34 years, KY,KY,KY, farmer
Mary A., wife, 50, married 1 time, 34 years, 6 children, 5 living, KY,KY,KY
Thomas B., son, 24, KY,KY,KY
Alexander M., son 22, KY,KY,KY
Minnie L., dau, 16, KY,KY,KY

1920 census: Burkesville, cumberland Co KY:
John A. Melton, head, 62, KY,KY,KY, farmer
Mary A., wife 55, KY,KY,KY
Thomas B., son, 33, widowed, KY,KY,KY, farm laborer
Alexander M., son, 29, divorced, KY,KY,KY, farm laborer
Fred Melton, grandson, 4 9/12, KY,KY,KY
Stella, granddau, 3 11/12, KY,KY,KY

KY death record:
John Allen melton, died 8 Apr 1927, Cumberland Co KY. Born 12 Oct 1861, KY, son of Simon and Rachel Melton.

1860 census: Clinton, KY:
Simon Melton, 31, KY
Rachael, 31, KY
Andrew J., 12, KY
Wm J., 9, KY
Franklin P, 7 KY
John A., 4, KY

1870 census: Cumberland KY
Simon Melton, 43, farmer, KY
Rachel, 42, KY
William, 20, KY
Franklin, 17, KY
James, 15, KY (this must be John)
Sarah, 2, KY

This is not my Melton family - mine are from GA and SC. Trish in TN
