Early Wilabee Shellnutt was the oldest son of Judge Thomas Shellnutt (James Thomas,Joseph S.). He was born about 1892, and died July 11, 1955. E.W. and Nettie had two children, Howard and Horace. E.W. had a second wife, Jewell Williams, and two children by her, Wallace and Eugene. E.W. was my uncle, although I never knew him either.
We are descended from the Habersham/White County Shelnut clan.
