Looking for any information on my father's maternal grandfather, Newton S. Shelnutt who lived in Welch, Ala. during the 1800's after (and probably during) the Civil War.His occupation was listed as planter.I know that he had a cotton farm in Welch, Ala. at one time.After the Civil War he had a general store in Welch, Ala. He married Nancy Elizabeth ("Betty"), my fahter's maternal grandmother.I do not know her maiden name.(I wish I did.)One of their 5 (?) children was Erma Undine Shelnutt Gordy, my great-grandmother.
