  • Notes 
    • HONEY GROVE, TEXAS Other Early Settlers - Published in the Honey Grove Signal-Citizen about 1938 Written by H. P. Allen, assisted by W. J. Erwin
      "«b»E. G. B. Shelton«/b», born in Lincoln County, Tenn., Dec. 8, 1837, came to Texas in 1873. First he rented land northwest of Honey Grove a few years, then east of Honey Grove and farmed a few years, then bought a farm a few miles south of town and settled permanently. He was an excellent farmer and a man of good judgment and good habits. He specialized in growing cotton, and was quite successful at it. He reared rather a large family. His sons, grandsons and great grandchildren compose the large connection of Sheltons living a few miles south of town, and they are all good citizens and good farmers. Mr. Shelton once lived a neighbor to me and I had dealings with him and I believe he was one of the best men I ever knew. He was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church. He lived to a ripe old age."
