My copy of Mr. Pilson's book has this information:

ELIPHAZ SHELTON CEMETERY, located at the foot of Main Street in Stuart. Except for a few crude field stone markers with no inseciptions, there is nothing now left of this cemetery. According to Mr. W. R. Shelton, Jr. of Columbus, OHIO, a descendant, the following are buried here: Ralph & Susannah Shelton, parents of Capt. Eliphaz Shelton.
Captain Eliphaz Shelton, and wife, Ann
Hannah Shelton, oldest child of Eliphaz and Ann
Peany Shelton Sharp, Daughter of Eliphaz and Ann Shelton
Sally Shelton Nowlin, Daughter of Eliphaz and Ann Shelton
Frederick Shelton, Son of Eliphaz and Ann Shelton
There may be others.
The remaining undisturbed graves are probably those of the Shelton slaves.
