The Shelton Family


For over 20 years I have been searching for my Greatgranddad's burial place.My Grandmother had this small dark picture and I took it and had it enlarged and the picture tells it's own story. My grandmother was only 7 years old when he died. They lived in Shirley, Van Buren Co., AR and my Greatgranddad John Shelton got sick and they left to go where air was drier is my understanding. My Grandmother always said he was buried at a Redhill Cemetery but she was only 7 years old. I found him working on a farm in 1910 in Atoka, OK. I recently discovered the Redden Cemetery in Atoka Co so I have no doubts but he is buried there. I am sending you a pic of them and the old covered wagon they traveled in. In the pic is John Shelton, Lizzie Brown Shelton, Bessie, (my grandmother) and Adele Shelton and Jim Gibbon's half brother to my grandmother. The pic tells a story it's self.
