Nelia Frances Napier's family was from Pittsylvania County, Virginia. She was the daughter of William Alexander Napier and Demaras B Reynolds. The family decided to head west and settle in Missouri. Both Nelia and her sister, Demaras, were born in Missouri. After a short time there, the family moved back to Virginia.
Nelia married Charles Shelton and her sister, Demaras, married Charles' brother, Peter T Shelton. They lived in Patrick County, Virginia.
Nelia and Charles "Maddy" had several children. Sadly, she died giving birth to my grandfather, George Madison Shelton, July 8 1881.
