Hi, welcome to my genealogy homepage...... The families whose heritage I hope to share with you are Shelton (my dad) and Wyatt (my mom) plus a few of the interesting folks connected to them over the years.

This genealogy is not intended to be a conclusive work, If you are into genealogy, then you know that many records are difficult to read, census lists vary somewhat, especially when it concerns the spelling of surnames. Dates often differ, or may not be legible. I have made every effort to verify facts where possible, and have listed sources and notes on each page in a footnote format. If errors are found, please bring them to my attention for correction.

Your comments are welcome
