Hello. I have looked over your information and have a couple of comments....
All of the children you list as being children of Eliphaz are correct except for Haman. There was no Haman....but Claiborne had a son named Haman and he is my ggggrandfather.

I guess the confusion is that there either is a Nancy Elizabeth Shelton or an Elizabeth Nancy Shelton or a Nancy Shelton or an Elizabeth Shelton or both. One source says that according to the Patrick county records Elizabeth married Elam Newman on 2/16/1804. Then Nancy married Elam Newman on 9/20/1813. Then the 1860 census shows that there is a Nancy and James Fitzgerald living with Hannah Shelton--Eliphaz' unmarried daughter.

This is very confusing and somehow I hope we figure this one out.
