Fenton's parents were Ernest Shapley and Edna Wood. They were divorced sometime before 1945 when he married Elizabeth Clark. Ernest was born 6/24/1894 and died 8/62.
Edna was born in 1896 but I have no death info on her.
Fenton was the second of 9 children and was born around 1920.

The other children are Kermit 10/23/1915, Payson (1922), Elizabeth 5/29/46, Francis 5/5/47, Ernest, 11/12/48 Carolyn 9/19/50, Charles 3/18/52 and Permilia 9/7/54.

It is interesting that the first three were with his first wife and there were no more children between 1922 and 1946 and then he and Elizabeth, who was 45 when she married him and he was 49 had 6 more children the last of which when she was 54.

I have some other info on the children if you need it and all of Fenton's lineage back to 1650.

Let me know if you have any interest.
