Norton, Jesse 36 , Elizabeth 23 , Rachel 7 , Isaac 2 , Martin
Jesse Norton married Elizabeth Shelton on 2 Dec 1865 in Madison Co NC; so their first child would have been born in 1867.Rachel SHELTON (b.1863) must have been a daughter of Elizabeth Shelton (unmarried).
Jesse & Elizabeth Norton are listed in 1880 Madison Co NC with 5 children (but not Rachel)
In 1900 Madison Co NC, Elizabeth Shelton Norton claimed that she had given birth to 11 children & 8 were still alive.
Census records seem to indicate that their were only two Ephraim Shelton's in North Carolina in the 1880's. 1)Ephraim Shelton (b.1830-living 1880)-lived Haywood Co NC
2)Ephraim Shelton (b.1856-d.1938)-lived Madison Co NC.He married Rhoda Hensley in 1886 Unicoi Co TN.Seems to be the more likely candidate.
