Edmund Shelton

I stopped in Pulaski TN and visited the courthouse seeking info on my Shelton/Hammond(s) relatives. Turns out, there are no marriage records except the late 1800s due to a fire. I did, however, find a will for an EDMUND SHELTON (there is an Edmund Shelton Cemetery there, but I didn't have time to go looking.)

The will is dated June 26th, 1846 and bequeaths legacies to his daughter Sarah Shelton Whitmore's 3 children George, Mary and Susan Whitmore. The executors and also heir's are his three sons Thomas P. Shelton, James N. (M?) Shelton, and Robert P. Shelton. This is not my line, and I will gladly share this document with researchers looking for old Edmund.
