Mr. Pankow, I have been following your posts on you family and alot of surnames are the same as mine. I am particulary interested in the Shelton/Deweese line. I recently discovered that I have the surname Deweese associated with my Nelson/Shelton line from Rowan Co.,N.C. around 1850 through my Nelson dna testing. I also have Davis,Taylor,Thompson,Hughes,Shelton,Irby,Irvin lines. The Deweese line I am looking at is from Henry W. Deweese 1800 Buncombe Co.,N.C. moved to Madison Co.,Ga. It list his father as a John Garrett Deweese & Susanna Palmer. John Garrett's parents were a Henry Deweese & Elizabeth Hughes who md. in 1768 in Pa. The Shelton I am looking for is a Julia Ann Shelton born 1823 in Rowan Co.,N.C. I do not know her parents but the only Sheltons in Rowan Co.,N.C. belong to the brother's family of Beverly Shelton.Maybe we could help each other out. Who were the children of Beverly & Ann Coleman Shelton. I believe that the Nancy Clark Shelton d/o Henry R. Shelton was a nephew of Beverly's .This Nancy Clark Shelton md. Beverly's g.sonLemuel Wyatt Shelton. I also think that my Julia Ann Shelton was a sister of this Nancy Clark Shelton. Julia Ann married a John Nelson. This would make my Julia a g.niece to Beverly Shelton. I believe this John Nelson was the son of a James Nelson who married a Nancy Reynolds and lived in Lincoln Co.,N.C.. James Nelson was born in Buncombe Co.,N.C. Everything I have has not been proven,but from DNA testing everything I have found leads me to this conclusion.Any thing you have that you would share would be greatly appreciated.
