To my son John Shelton five pounds sterling to cut him off from his heirship.
My four last children namely Easop Shelton, Abbegal Shelton, Mary Shelton, Liberty Shelton, shall by resid (sic) of my estate. The remainder part of my estate, lands and moveables to be equally divided between Ralph Shelton, Palitiah Shelton,Eliphaz Shelton, James Shelton, Ezekiah Shelton, Jerimiah Shelton, Azariah Shelton, Roger Shelton, Easop Shelton, Abbegal Shelton, Mary Shelton, Liberty Shelton, Katherine Rutherford, Sarah Robertson, Elizabeth

signed: Ralph Shelton
Wit: John Fletcher, Henry Holt, John Branham

30 march 1789. Proved by witnesses. Exhibited in court by Eliphaz Shelton who gave bond with Steven Lyon and John
Parr,Jr., securities.

Per Janice Mauldin Castleman: "In 1745 Ralph Shelton, Jr. owned 400 acres in Armelia Co, VA, the records spelled his surename SKELTON. Ken Shelton, who wrote The Shelton Trek Across Kentucky, The Jistory of the Jeremiah Shelton Family of Kentucky and Missouri said that Ralph was mentioned in his mother's will in Amelia Co, VA., and he probably lived near her at this time."..."Ralph Shelton, Jr. had moved to Halifax Co, VA and he was in Henry Co, Va when it was formed in 1776/77. Ralph and his son Eliphaz are buried in the same cemetery. Ken wrote that Ralph listed 17 children in his will. There is also a belief that there was an Ebenezer Shelton who was Ralph's son. There is an Ebenezer on the 1800 Tax rolls of Kentucky, and he is in Butler Co, KY alon with Jeremiah Shelton, but no other records were found on him."

little is known), is mentioned in a deed shortly before his death which names
his last four children, Eason, Abigail, Mary, and Liberty Shelton to share
equally in his estate with his elder children. Other children named in the will
are sons Ralph, Palitiah, Eliphas, James, Hezekiah, Jeremiah, Azariah (who
married Sarah Holt and moved to TN), Roger, and John, his son whom he
cut off with a bequest of 25 pounds so that he could not claim kinship. The
