Hello again Deborah!

How wonderful that you have that connection and know about it!!
My interest in the Claiborne-Elizabeth Shelton family is that while seeking records that would indicate who my gg-grandfather's parents were; I had received several responses. One of the responses said that my Thomas Shelton was from the Claiborne-Elizabeth marriage.
I realize that has no basis in fact that I know of, but I continue to look for records.
We now believe that my Thomas 1813 was probably of the Josiah Shelton-Frances Ford marriage but that still remains unproved. There is circumstantial evidence for that, including land transactions, naming patterns, etc. I won't feel sure until I learn more. Another part of the puzzle is that Levi (Lee) Shelton seems to be Thomas' brother.

You must be very proud to have the Oregon Trail heritage!
Thanks for your response!
My Thomas married Elisabeth Allen of NC in 1835 in Patrick Co VA.
