Shelton Family

Looking for information on Hezakiah (aka H.K., Hesakiah, Hezra Kiah, Hezra K.) Shelton family who migrated from Giles Co. TN to TX in 1880's.

H.K. Shelton & 1st wife Mary Catherine Cole had 3 children: William G(Green?), Jennie Ann, and Oliver all born in TN. Found widower Hesakiah with these children on 1880 Giles Co., TN census.

H.K. Shelton & 2nd wife Emma Ashley had following children: Minnie (b. TN); Walter C.(b. TX), Claudie (b & d Ellis Co.), Arthur, Grady, Clyde, & Oliver (all b. TX).

Shelton family passed through Ellis & Navarro Counties on way to Coleman Co. H.K. found on tax records in both counties. Claudie is buried in Alma, Ellis Co.

William married Virgie L. ? Nettie married Millard/Willard Richardson, Arthur married Maye Taylor, Grady moved to AZ.

H.K. Shelton died in 1915 and is buried in Santa Anna Cem next to Emma who died in 1909.

In 1893 in Navarro Co. Jennie Shelton married Lee E. Hawkins. They were my gr-grandparents. Jennie Shelton Hawkins' first son was listed as Hezekiah on the 1910 Navarro Co. census, but was always known as Hezra. I'm looking for information that will prove that my gr-grandmother was H.K.'s daughter.
