My Relationship : 6th Great Grandfather
Father: Crispen SHELTON
Birth: 1743, Amelia County, Virginia
Spencer (b 1743) married his first cousin, Clary Shelton (dau of Daniel) in
1770-71. No birth or marriage record has been found on either and Spencer
left no will.
Appointed Lt. in 1777, Capt in 1778, served in Rev. War. On 1767 Tax list in
Pitts. County sold several tracts of land in this county in 1780's and 90's,
wife signed as "Clary." Bought land in Lincoln Co, NC on Killian Creek
6-18-1799. Listed in 1800 census, wife Clary does not appear. Neither of
them appear in census of 1810 in Lincoln Co, NC or Pitts Co, VA. All children
evidently born in Pitts.Co, VA. Was living in Lincoln Co, NC before 1795 when
the gr-son Spencerborn 1795 was brought there to be cared for by relatives and
grew up as abro to Meacon born 1792.
Spencer and Clary may have had more children than ae given in these records,
and may have had a dau married and living in Lincoln Co. in 1795 and that
Spencer did not move there until after his dau. Anyway some ofhis family was
living there in 1795.
