Shelton Family
1886 Tintype Photograph

This photograph belonged to Nellie Grace Taylor (1900-1984), who was born and  married in Todd County. Her father, George Milton "Milt" Taylor, was born and died in Todd County. (A violent death according to family stories) Nellie married Finis Oliver Shelton , born in 1894 Todd; his father William Taylor Shelton, known as Blacksmith Bill, in Clifty, in Todd.
Checking dates for the fathers of Nellie Grace Taylor and Finis Oliver  Shelton leads to strong possiblitly that the man pictured on the right is father of Finis Shelton- William Taylor Shelton, known as Bill the blacksmith.  Born in 1866 and would have been 20 years old at time of picture.  Checking for siblings of William Taylor Shelton and the person pictured on the left is possibly William's brother Albert S. Shelton ,
born 1869, and would have been 17 years old at time of picture.

This photograph was submitted by Jan Shelton Nixon..researching Shelton, Taylor, Higgins
Jan is anxious to see if anyone can identify this photo or knows more on the SHELTON  family.
