Jacquelin Shelton (Sheryl Knotts) Home Page

Jacquelin Sue Shelton

711 Seamaster

Houston, Texas 77062


My primary research is on the line of Thomas Shelton (b ca 1791) of North Carolina and Mary Tarver. Thomas's father was also Thomas Shelton, believed to be married to Rebecca Best. I am also searching on the following names: Roberson, Seales, Knotts, Scroggins, and Dunaway. I have also run across the name Doctor Greenlee (or Greenlief) in the family; Doctor is not a title, it is the first name. I would like to find the origin of this name. Thomas Shelton moved from NC to GA, AL and MS. Several of his sons moved from MS to Texas.
My grandfaher was Claud Shelton, son of Columbus Patrick Shelton, a grandson of Thomas (1791), of Madisonville, Texas. My birth mother was Mamie Shelton, of Houston, Texas; my birth name is Jacquelin Sue Shelton. I was adopted by Pearl and Emmett Summers and renamed Sheryl Louise Summers. Knotts is my married name.

I would appreciate information on any of these names and will be glad to provide any information I have. I have some fairly extensive records of Sheltons (not restricted to my line) that were given to me.
