Am looking for information on or connections to the following:

Lewis W. Shelton (b. ca 1837, Carroll Co., MS) m. on 12/26/1858 in Pine Bluff, Jefferson Co., AR, Harriet Pritchett Henry (b. ca 12/1841, GA; d. 12/28/1922, Creek Co., OK)---Harriet supposed to be Creek Indian

John Marion Shelton (b. 8/25/1859, Pine Bluff, AR; d. 8/18/1925, Ranger, TX) m. on 9/25/1887 in Limestone Co., TX, Nancy Abagail Fleming (b. 3/26/1872, Monroe Co., AL; d. 3/19/1918, Bremond, TX)

Also descendents of William Blaine Corbin (b. ca 1798, poss. GA; d. Carroll Co., MS) m. Jane Sanders (b. ca 1802, GA; d. Lampassas Co., TX)----at least one of William's and Jane's children were reported to have been living in Jefferson Co., AR ca 1855 and Jane may have been there with the child

Would love to hear from anyone with connections to any of these families.

P.S. Lewis W. Shelton disappeared at the end of the Civil War and some family members believe he may have returned to AR (was living in TX at time) and possibly married again. He left a wife and 3 young children in TX.
