Hi Shelia,

It rather seems to me that we have been through this before but here is the chart for Sarah Shelton Henry's brothers. Specifically and, established by a lawsuit before the highest Court of Virginia in 1791, John Shelton and Eleanor Parks had only two sons, John Shelton, III, and William Parks Shelton. By his will, recorded in Goochland Will & Deed Book 12, p. 211., probated December 21, 1778, it is established that William Parks Shelton left his estate to his brother and friends, mentioning no wife or children; and it is established that he, too, became mentally ill and never married. So he had no children. The only male line of descent from John Shelton married Eleanor Parks was through John Shelton, III, (who was the "Captain" John Shelton of the Revolutionary War and was frequently called "Captain").

These are the descendants of John Shelton, III, son John Shelton m. Eleanor Parks, lived at "Rural Plains." Hanover County, Virginia, and John Shelton, III, is generation "1" below:
1 John Shelton III 1751 - 1798 (death estabalished from Tax Lists - birth date from Margaret Augusta Shelton which she cited to his Bible which was, but apparently no longer is, at "Rural Plains".)
.. +Ann Randolph - no children with her and she died several years after the marriage
*2nd Wife of John Shelton III:
.. +Nancy Williamson - d. 1780
........ 2 Robert Shelton 1774 - got land in Lunenburg and Lancaster Counties, VA

I don't see any mention of a Stephen b. 1809 NC m Abigail Harris/Nancy Brown nor much leeway for putting him on this tree but maybe you will see a connection that I don't.
