Notes for PRESTON COLUMBUS SHELTON:

Death certificate states Preston C. Shelton died June 18,1910 at 4 am of "Cholera Morbus (or Acute Dysentery) complicated by"Chronic Disease of the Heart". He was born in Kentucky and lived in Illinois for 50 years. He was buried at Brown Cemetery on June 19, 1910 at 11 am. Dr. Edwin Roberts signed the certificate on June 30, 1910. His widow's pension application state he was enlisted as a private on Nov. 17, 1867 at Shawneetown, Ill in the 87th Illinois Voluntary Infantry, then transferred to the 18th Illinois Vol. Infantry and honorably discharged Nov 20, 1868. He fought for the Union. He and Ellen Marvel, born in Mt. Erie, Ill were married on Nov. 14, 1867 by David Holmes, JP. Ellen hired W.F. Walters to prosecute the claim on the pension. Her signature was an "X" so I think that she probably could not read or write. Let me know if this information proves or disproves that our Ellens are the same.

Notes for ULYSSES S. GRANT MARVEL: U.S. Grant Marvel ran awayfrom home at age 14 after the death of his mother, Ellen. He was a railroad man.They had 12 children.

He was a railroad man, restless and always on the move, whichseems very American to me. Family legend has it that his father served underGrant in the Civil War and named his firstborn in honor of his old commander.After the war, he homesteaded on the Blue River in Kansas, where Grant grewup.Grant was 13 or 14 when his mother died and he fought bitterly -- familylegend, again -- with his stepmother. He is said to have run away at age 14,somehow finding his way to Springfield, Missouri, where he was hired by therailroad (probably the St. Louis & Iron Mountain).

His railroad career lasted until retirement in 1933. Its mostdramatic moments came, It was told, when he was conductor on one of the trainsthat took the Colorado State Militia down to Ludlow, an event that culimnated inthe infamous Ludlow Massacre. U.S. Grant Marvel had been a staunch union man andhis participation in that event cast a deep shadow over his life.
