General Notes:

Descendents of Joseph Shelton Reporting..


Joseph Shelton, an early settler near Dahlgren, was born in 1793, some say in the eastern part of the United States, though most of the descendents feel that he was born in Kentucky.

Joseph Shelton was a private in the War of 1812. He fought in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, and the Shelton heirs have an old watch he found on the battlefield at New Orleans. He served, probably as a captain, in the Indian Wars in Illinois in 1816 or 1817. The Shelton heirs have his old rifle and powder horn that he carried in the Indian War. When this period of service was ended, he was discharged near where Chicago now stands. His horse was lame, so he turned it loose and walked to Southern Illinois. The captains in the Indian War furnished their own horses, and the pay was $8.00 per month.

Joseph Shelton was married somewhere in the East in about the year 1817, and about 1820 he and his wife settled a mile north and a mile east of what is now Dahlgren.

Their first baby was born and died at the home northeast of Dahlgren. When Mr. Shelton was gone into the woods to make a coffin in which to bury the baby, a panther came to the door of their cabin. Mrs. Shelton drove the hungry animal away with a stick with fire on one end of it that she had grabbed from the fireplace.

One summer a long, hard rain had put out the fire which they always tried to keep near their cabin in order to have fire with which to cook. Mrs. Shelton rode a horse twelve or fifteen miles east to the nearest neighbor to get some fire in an iron pot. She covered the glowing coals with ashes so it would not go out during the long journey back home.

The children of Joseph and Mrs. Shelton included: Sopha, who married Nathan Garrison, the grandmother of David M. and Roman Garrison; Pernecie, who married a man named Rawls; Nan, who married a Mr. Richardson; Julie Ann, who married a Mr. Atchinson; Sylvester, who was the grandfather of Lawrence and Frank Shelton [sons of Columbus] who live near Dahlgren; and Wilson Albert Shelton who was the grandfather of Carl, Bernie and Earl Shelton. Wilson Albert was the son of Josiah Shelton who was a Uncle to Joseph C. Shelton.

Joseph Shelton again served his country as a major in the Black Hawk War in 1832.

He was a very dignified man, and relied greatly on ceremony. It is often told that when he was coming home if his wife did not come out and meet him and say, "alight, Mr. Shelton, and come in," he would ride right on by!

David M. Garrison, one of the grandsons of Joseph Shelton, has an old kettle about four and a half feet in diameter which has been in the family a long time. This kettle was originally used near Shawneetown, Illinois, to "boil down" salt water for salt in the early 1800s.

Joseph Shelton is buried on the old Shelton homestead northeast of Dahlgren. His heirs held a Shelton Reunion every year from 1915 to 1925.

Joseph C. Shelton was born March 1, 1793 in Pittsylvania Co., VA. As a small child his family moved to Kentucky where he grew up and married Nancy Fagin Chaffin January 15, 1850? in Christian Co., KY. This may be why some thought he was born in Kentucky.
