Thank you for your information, Mike.... I wouldn't doubt that Abraham Montague Shelton has some connection with my George Abraham Shelton and his connection to the Montegues and Paces.Here are some more Pace-Shelton connections.
I have not researched the information below, personally.But I have read about these Sheltons in an online book and the following is from other researchers information on Roots Web.I believe the Sheltons in Jackson County, Alabama are possibly related to my Shelton line, who lived in Fayette Co. Alabama.They are not that far apart and Noah Shelton, Jr. lived and is buried in the same cemetery as my great grandmother's sister in Logan County, Arkansas.Maybe just a coincidence.
Martha Pace and Catherine Pace were sisters who married Shelton brothers.Martha and Catherine were the daughters ofWilliam Pace Jr.(b. 1790 in Va)and Elizabeth Wininger.William Pace Jr. died in Jackson County, Alabama after June 23, 1870.
Martha Patsy Pace was born 1817 in Scott County, Virginia and died 1902 inJackson County, Alabama.She married William Shelton, born27 Dec., 1811in Washington Co., Virginia.He died 7 Feb., 1864 in Jackson Co. Al.He was the son of John Shelton and Catherine Messer.
Catherine Pace (Hall) was born 26 Aug 1826 in Jackson County Alabamanear Scottsboro. She died9 SEP 1890 in Jackson Co. Alabama and is buried there in the Shelton Cemetery.She married 1st Manoah Hall.Her second marriage was to Noah Shelton, b. 15 Jan., 1815 in Virginia. He died 24 May, 1886 in Jackson County, Alabama.She was his 2nd wife.
