Yes, I do know the town. My gr grandfather had a saddle shop there during the Civil War. There is nothing there now. During the 1860 time period up until about twenty years ago, there was a small town there. During the Civil War time it was a pretty good size town but during the coming years, got smaller and smaller. My brother and his wife live in Starkville, MS and we were driving to go to Lodi again. A family named Patridge had the last store there. There were several buildings that were abandoned. I had been there a few years earlier and there were two stores then. It just happened that this was the last day that the Patridge store would be open. It closed the next day. This Patridge (Partridge) is related to me through the Casaday family. If you would like, I can find exactly where it was on the map-and let you know. I am sure that you have already looked at this but so far I have found only one Shelton listed in Choctaw in 1860. T. L. Shelton is listed in the slave census and there is a male child listed as one year old. Could this be your Miles? I will do some more looking. I was not notified that you had replyed to my message. If for some reason I do not answer, contact me at CMCFARL641@AOL.COM.
