Back left to right,
Mary Elizabeth Brown Shelton, John Shelton, Bessie Laverne
Shelton, Adele O. Shelton, James Gibbons. James is Mary's son whose Dad
died when he was about 7 years old. They left Shirley, Van Buren Co.,
AR and went to Pauls Valley, OK as John had what is now called TB and
they hoped the drier air would help.
I am Joann Bradford and all the years growing up I had heard from my Grandmother that her dad died in OK and was buried at a Redhill Cemetery.
The company below is who took the picture, it took the
picture developed it and printed it, sorta like our Polaroid cameras did.
My GreatGrandma went back to Van Buren County, AR and use to do sewing
for my Grandma Bradford. It was said she had a fine hand for hand sewing.
She was 70 when she died. The other grandmother of mine was born in 1874
in KY and died in Clinton, AR at 107 years old. Thru her Daniel Boone's
granddad is my 8th greatgranddad. A John Webb married Mary Boone and my
grandmother came down thru them in Lawrence Co., KY.
