Jason, I have corresponded with you beforeconcerning your Irby family as a surname match to my Nelson dna. Eldon Irby's name was in there too. I was doing some research tonight and found a message from Eldon Irby number 987 that has a Jeptha Irby listed in it that may have been a descendent of your Jeptha or at least a relative. I think it has to be related to the John S. Shelton who md. Nancy Irby in 1825 in Pittsylvania Co.,Va.
