In Reply to: Re: Ephraim Shelton father to Melvin Shelton b 1882 & Solomon (Sollie) b 1884 NC by Becky Shelton of 7793

1870 Madison Co NC census

Norton, Jesse 36
, Elizabeth 23
, Rachel 7
, Isaac 2
, Martin

Jesse Norton married Elizabeth Shelton on 2 Dec 1865 in Madison Co NC; so their first child would have been born in 1867. Rachel SHELTON (b.1863) must have been a daughter of Elizabeth Shelton (unmarried).

Jesse & Elizabeth Norton are listed in 1880 Madison Co NC with 5 children (but not Rachel)

In 1900 Madison Co NC, Elizabeth Shelton Norton claimed that she had given birth to 11 children & 8 were still alive.

Census records seem to indicate that their were only two Ephraim Shelton's in North Carolina in the 1880's.
1)Ephraim Shelton (b.1830-living 1880)-lived Haywood Co NC

2)Ephraim Shelton (b.1856-d.1938)-lived Madison Co NC. He married Rhoda Hensley in 1886 Unicoi Co TN. Seems to be the more likely candidate.
