SHELTON's of Todd and Muhlenberg (c0nt)


            This cemetery is located near Clifty in Todd Co. Ky. Turn off highway 107 at lane across from Holiness Church to the farm.  It was owned in 1964 by Clara Rager, Youngest dau of Wm.W.Shelton, who was the 8th child of Gabriel Shelton.

            The original house burned a number of years ago.  The cemetery is well behind the house through a pasture.  In the central part stand very old cedar trees which, according to members of older generations, mark the graves of Abraham Monticue Shelton and his first wife, Jane Latham Shelton.  Two graves, boxed in by field stones, can still be seen there. Jane Latham Shelton was born about 1803 and died Sept. 29, 1852 (from Perrin's History of Todd Co. & Ky. Vital Statistics Death Record)  A.M. Shelton bought land on Clifty Creek in 1829 (this place), added to it in 1842 and owned it when Jane died in 1852.  She was probably one of the first persons buried here - the first marked graves have 1858 death dates.  A.M. Shelton and his 2nd wife, Sarah (dau of Asher Shelton) sold the farm to Gabriel in 1960 (Todd Deeds) and moved to Kedron in Logan Co.

            This cemetery was visited 24 Aug. 1964 and again 5 Jun 1964 by Mrs. Henry C. Alford, Jr.( g-g-grdau of A.M. Shelton) and her mother, Mrs. Royce E. Simons (nee Daisy Shelton).  Every remaining marker was copied for some noted in 1954 were missing in 1964.  They are here arranged in family groups with ID from Bible records, Court, Census, etc. (Id by MSA)
