Shelton - Sams are definitely Madison names.One of my east Tennessee Confederate relatives was James Jefferson Land, (3 x 1st cousin). He migrated to east Tennessee with his widowed mother and two sisters from Wilkes County, NC in the mid-1850's. He served in Company D 63rd Tn Infantry and surrendered at Appomattox. His son, Thomas A. Land (1875-1934) married Tryphena ( Triphonia) Shelton (1875-1931) on Dec. 22, 1896 in Greene County, Tennessee. She was reportedly the 2nd child of Shadrach "Shad" Shelton and Margaret Sams. I believe they were from the Laurel ? I believe Shad's brother, Andrew was one of Kirk's men ?
Reportedly a photo of Margaret Sams Shelton
