In your research of queries, don't forget to check out the queries that were posted during the previous months. Links to them are at the bottom of this query page. Queries start with January 1999.

Note: Query pages within the TNGenWeb project are for those researchers requesting or offering assistance in tracing their lineage. The TNGenWeb volunteers are dedicated to providing this FREE online Internet genealogical Web Site for the general public. It is NOT the policy of TNGenWeb to charge you.

It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a query, have been asking to be paid for research. We do recognize that it would be fair to be asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs. However, charging research fees for information pertaining to the original query would be questionable at best.

If anyone is asked to pay for any information, other than to cover the cost of postage and copying, please let the State Coordinator know.

My GGgrandfather was Edward Shelton. According to his obit he was born June 1805 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. I find him in the 1835 Tax Rolls of Williamson Co, Rock Hill-Trinty area, TN. He is with Samuel Shelton b. abt 1807 also VA (believed brothers). By 1837 they had moved over to the next District in Triune, WI Co., TN. Samuel left TN about 1839/40. Edward had married Zilpha (Magness) Glenn on 1-1-1837 who was the widow of William Glenn (she had child John Glenn b. 1834). Edward and Zilpha remained here (on Abram Glenn's land)until about 1847. In Triune they birthed at least: Nancy 1837, Samuel 1838, Benj. Franklin abt 1842, George Washington 1846, Robert Morgan 1845, and Richard Manoah 1846/47. Then the family with 7 children moved to MS. Now ... were Edward and/or Samuel married before 1835?? What brought them to Rock Hill/ Trinity? Who was their family?? After fifteen years of research ... no answers. How can I find out any more info besides Tax Rolls in Rock Hill/ Trinity, WI Co., T
