I have been looking for any members of my grandmother's Shelton side of the family for a long time, with no luck. She was born June 1,(1898-1900?) in the Devil's Fork section of Flag Pond Tn. in Unicoi County. She told us that her mother died when she was very young and that a family named Briggs raised her. Some of our family members say that her parents were not married and some say that they were married. She married under the name Martha Elizabeth Hensley to Pierce Leander Wykle in 1918. She said that she sometimes went by Shelton and sometimes she went by Hensley. We don't know which one of her parents was the Shelton and which one was the Hensley. She had a brother named Garfield and a brother named Harrison and maybe another brother. She also had a sister named Maude and a sister named Pearl or Parlee and maybe another sister. She said that her uncle, Henry Shelton, helped her catch a train from Greeneville Tn. to Greenville S.C. when she ran away. One family member said that Henry Shelton was Martha's mother's brother. She also mentioned that she was related to the Millers and Guinns or Quinns. Thanks for any information.
