    SHELTON/CHILTON, CLOPTON. Per a graveyard monument in Brandon, Mississippi, THOMAS SHELTON (1742 - 1846) served in the Revolution from 1777 to 1781, completing service with the rank of 1st. Lieutenant. This service matches the record of a Thomas Shelton [not the Major] who was appointed as an ensign in the Louisa Co. militia on February 16, 1777 and ultimately was appointed 1st Lieutenant in the room of DAVID MERIWEATHER on November 12, 1781. Men who served under Lt. Thomas Shelton reported in pension applications that they fought at the Battle of Camden in a unit commanded by Capt. JOHN BYARS, with ANTHONY WINSTON as ensign and JAMES SHELTON as a Sergeant. Family lore (corroborated by descendants' names) says (i) his wife was a CLOPTON, possibly Jane as claimed in early DAR applications, though naming patterns in descendants suggest that her name was Susan, (ii) that the surname was originally Chilton, and (iii) he was a merchant with stores in Virginia and Tennessee. A son, Thomas Shelton, Jr. (1763 - 1857) who raised his family in Pittsylvania County, Va. is named on the same monument in Brandon, Miss. Thomas Shelton, Jr. married and survived four known wives and had sets of children by three of them, all believed to have been born and raised in Halifax/Pittsylvania Cos., Va. The known wives were SARAH BARKSDALE, [SARAH?] HEWLITT, PHEBE HATCHER MARSHALL (widow of PETER COUSINS), and SARAH CRUMP. Thomas Shelton, Sr. may have been a son of the Thomas Shelton who died in Pittsylvania Co. in 1808 who many researchers have erroneously claimed as the father of Thomas Shelton, Jr. d. 1857. I seek information concerning (i) others who served in the Revolution with Thomas Shelton, Sr. d. 1846, (ii) the name and parents of the Clopton girl believed to be his first wife, (iii) names and other data of any other children and wives of Thomas,Sr., (iv) places of residence of Thomas Shelton, Sr.
