MELTON ?: Richard Smith Melton m. Lettice Melton
Posted by: Jim Bowman Date: March 05, 2002 at 16:44:08
  of 2349

R. Smith Melton died about 1853, leaving behind several children including a son George W. and a daughter Emaline Rollins, the wife of Amos D./B.?? ROLLINS. Amos sued the widow Letty in behalf of his wife's minor siblings. Testimony taken suggested Letty had a new boyfriend, Jack Hardin, and she was not providing adequately for the children and heirs of Smith MELTON.

Can anyone provide any info on family of origin of Smith MELTON, his wife Lettice MELTON or Amos ROLLINS? Any info on what became of Letty and the children? Anything on what became of Amos Rollins. In the 1860 Census he and Emaline are in Cleveland County with young sons Adam and Richard. In the 1870 Census she is alone with the two boys and a daughter.

The family moved into SC and R. Smith ROLLINS married Elmira (?) VAUGHN, dau. of Lewis Vaughn in Greenville Co. about 1882. This couple later moved to Anderson Co, then to Pickens County, settling near Liberty. Their daughter, Minnie married Alfred E. BOWMAN Sr. about 1902. Minnie and Alfred were my gparents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
