In Reply to: looking for Leah Shelton, Stone, Pierah. family members by Sandra Beagles of 65481

I'm not related

WWI draft reg. Creek Co. OK

Raymond Keith b. 5/31/1923 d. 9/30/1923 bur. Janesville IL
Sarah J. b. @ 1925
Bonnie M. b. @ 1928

Leah Shelton married G. H. Stone on 29 Aug 1897 in Robertson Co. TX

In the 1900 census, Leah only has 2 children & indicates she is a widow. Many women said they were widows when they weren't to avoid the stigma of divorce, desertion, or separation.

I don't think the Geo. H. Stone that married Leah died until after 1930.

I believe this is him in 1900 with his mother
