Dorothy Ratigan My great grandfather was John Wesley Shelton. He fought in the Civil War area of Little Rock, AR. He was a CSA, Co H, 26th AR Inf, enrolled from 13 June 1862, from Johnson County, AR. He married Mary Elizabeth Jordan in 1867 in AR. She lists herself as being born in AR. The next account of them is in Indian Territory (OK). The story is that they came thru TX to OK. John W. Shelton died around Ardmore, OK in 1899, at the age of 56. He left behind Mary & 7 children, ages ranging from 20 to 4. No relatives ever came around during all those years. Does anybody know anything about their lineage? I have all the info up-to-date but nothing from 1899 back.
