My First Cousin, Twice Removed and his wife. This photo was provided by my third cousin - Vonette Curtis.
THANK YOU, VONETTE!
Dillian Shelton was born December 7th, 1885 to Winfield Scott Shelton and Annie Skudmore McMullin. His wife, Elizabeth M. Byers was born in 1893. Elizabeth was called "Lizzie". I do not have her parents. Dillian and Lizzie were married on the first day of the year in 1910 in Vincennes, Indiana.
I do not have a whole lot of information on this couple. They are closely related to my cousin, Vonette Curtis. She descends from the brother of Dillian - JZ. Shortly after they celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary, on January 18th, 1966, Lizzie lost her Dillian. Lizzie survived until 1985 when she passed away.
I do hope that with the little bit of information known about this couple that I have done them justice in this brief biography of their lives. May they rest in peace - side by side.
