Tom Shelton, born on May 26, 1872, in Copiah County, attended Kent's College of Law, Chicago, and received a degree there in 1897, which was supplemented by another from the University of Mississippi in 1898. He began practice in Fayette, Mississippi, in 1899, and served as state senator from Jefferson and Claiborne counties. In 1908, he made the race for Congress but was defeated; again in 1910, he was defeated by only two hundred votes. Subsequently, he moved to Lambert and built up a lucrative practice there, but is inactive now on account of failing health.
