I am looking for any infomation on Benjamin Shelton who was my g-grandfather and lived in Buchanan Co. He was born in abt. 1858, died abt 1913? In the 1880 census, he was 22 yrs old, living with a James Helton who was a constable. The census indicated he was born in VA. He married "Wady" Ratliff sometime in the 1880's. He had several children of which one was my grandfather, Arthur C. (Snake) Shelton. Another was Willie.

I cannot find anything about hime as far as where he was born, when/where/how he died, where he is buried, his parents, etc. I would think he is buried somewhere in Buchanan Co.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
