I have always heard from family members that we are "related to the Shelnutts" but have not been able to discover the particulars. My Brooks family descends from William Brooks b.1782 in NC, d.Feb 1868, Walton County, GA and his wife Jane Weaver b.abt 1782 in GA, d.Feb 1870, Walton County, GA.
My Grandfather is a member of the Corinth Christian Church in Youth, Walton County, GA. I have a vague memory of the last name Shelnutt in a church directory or other such membership list.
I am grateful for any information.
