    BEELER, SHELTON,McBEE 7/28/99 8:09:05 AM Eastern Daylight Time
    Hello, I am new to the group. I would like to explain who I am and why I subscribed.
    My name I Duane Mills. I was born and raised in Pawhuska, OK but have lived and worked the last 30 years or so in the North Sea offshore Norway. I am now retired here in Norway.
    I am the gggrandson of Penelope Shelton who married Robert Beeler in 1861in Grainger County, TN. I have an US Govt, official record where Penelope applied to the Cherokee Rolls as Cherokee Indian because her father Ralph Shelton was a halfbreed.
    This all started as a half hearted search because of a handwritten note I found after my mothers death. She and my grandmother had always maintained we were Cherokee but it was almost impossible to get on the official rolls. I never paid much attention and now wish I had.
    Moms handwritten comments:      "The last but just as important, is that I am a Cherokee Indian. My mothers grandmother was a half breed indian and her father was brought to Indian Territory on the removal of the Cherokees from Tennessee. His name was Ralph Shelton. On removal of the indians from Tennessee, some became ill on the way to Indian Territory and died on the way here. Ralph Shelton died in Indian Territory from pneumonia and was buried in I.T."
    "My great grandmother was named Penelope Beeler  who was the great grandmother of Joe Beeler whose sculpture and paintings are in the museum at Woolarock, which is between Bartlesville and Barnsdall, Oklahoma."
    I have been in contact with Joe Beeler, the native american artist. He confirms he is the grandson or Robert and Penelope Beeler. He says only that Penelope was Cherokee, but I am waiting on more correspondence about verification.
    As to the Sheltons, Ralph is supposed to be the son of Azariah Shelton and Sarah Holt according to WFT 4864 via FTM. He is not listed as their son however on file H6794.
    I inquired through various Shelton geneological groups  about indian ancestry for Penelope Shelton, daughter of Ralph and Anna Taylor, Ralph´s second wife.
    I got a few e-mails mostly explaining that Ralph could not possibly be indian and that he died prosporous on the Clinch River in TN. Some politely pointed out that there was a lot of wishful thinking in families and that there was no indian blood in the Shelton line and I should look elsewhere, maybe the Holts, etc, etc--Sheltons descended from England.
    I do not do Shelton research, nor do i want to. I only want to know  where the indian blood came from. All my info comes directly down from Penelope when she applied in 1897 to be enrolled on the Cherokee "Guion Miller" role.
    I do not intend to include all the info I have accumulated here, but a short summary of her sworn testimony is listed below
    Attached to her application was the following typed statement.  Penelope J. Beeler being first duly sworn deposes and says.
    "My name is Penelope J. Beeler. I live at Neosho, Mo. I am 61 years old. I was born in Eastern Tenn. In Clayborn Co. I claim through my father, Ralph Shelton, who was a half Cherokee. My father was an old man when he died and he died when I was about 6 years old. I think he was in the seventies when he died. My father lived with the white people in his latter days. When he was younr he lived with the indians. I guess he was about 40 years old when he began living with the white people.  He was around where the indians were in 1835, and I guess he lived with them. I don´t know whether he was a recognized member of the tribe or not.  My father never received any money or land from the government on account of his indian blood. I hearn my mother speak of the treaty of 1835. She told about my father going off with the indians and staying with them so much. My father died in Tenn. I could not say whether he was ever enrolled or not. I heard my mother speak about an enrollment, but I don´t know whether my father was enrolled or not. The only name I know of that my father had was Ralph Shelton. My father had brothers:  Jim, Bill. Sisters: Jennie  I have heard of Spencer Shelton, but I don´t know what relation he is to me. Most of my relatives moved from Tenn. to Cherokee Nation, Okla. Nancy Shelton and Annie Shelton was my fathers kin folks. I don´t remember what relation though. it seems to me that Annie Shelton was my fathers´s oldest sister. We applied for citizenship but we never heard from it.
     Witness to mark. Penelope J. Beeler
    Just from her application, I know her brothers and sisters, and also her chlidren by Robert Beeler. 3 of the Beeler girls married McBee.
    What I want from the group is any info that might lead me to indian ancestry for Ralph Shelton.
    Penelope says he was born in VA. A Spencer Shelton was admitted to the Cherokee Rolls but he was born in Indian Territory in 1848 although his father was named James and could possibly be the brother of Ralph.
    I would be glad to exchange info or tosend anyone interested either a gedcom, or an Adobe Acrobat .pdf file with my sources and infomation. The .pdf file can be opened with Adobe Acrobat reader which is free from
    Best regards,

    McDowell in Lawrence Co., KY, in 1853. She died having twins later
    that year.  Does anyone know about the DOOLEY family?  If you do, I
    would love to hear from you.  Thanks   Brenda
