My father is a decsendent of General Jackson Melton, brother to Decalb Melton. I have info on that part of the family. Decalb's father was David Melton b. 1801 in either N.C. or S.C. he married Eleanor(Elendor, Elinor)Hess/Clark. Their children were David N.b. 1833 in Bradley Co., Tn., Elizabeth b. 1833 in Bradley Co., Tn., Sarah b. 1837 in Bradley Co., Tn., Decalb b. Sept. 1846 in Polk Co., Tn., General Jackson b. Aug. 23, 1850 in Polk Co., Tn. Do you have any info on George Washington Melton(Joseph Robert Darrah), I have that they may have been the same person but have no idea why.
