David Taylor's (Temperance's presumed father) 1843 Will and Estate Sale. He only names his sons by name in the will (David, Jesse, Mills, Martin, etc). No naming of Temperance or the other daughter. However....the estate sale was administered by Mills Taylor and Richard B. Rose (Rose is a close neighbor of John Shelton in1840 census as well), and the estate sale features the Taylor sons, R.B. Rose, and JOHN SHELTON (along with a few others).

John Shelton is featured getting David Taylor's best Colt, a Yoke Oxen, dishes, a pitcher, set of plates, pitcher, tea kettle & cups, table, ??? furniture, clock, books, side of bacon, etc. There are only about 10-15 "buyers", most of whom are family members (Taylors), R.B. Rose, Elizabeth Mason (other daughter maybe?), and a couple others.

That she is the widow of John Shelton who was enrolled in the 4th day of July 1862 in Company A of the 8th Regiment Missouri Cavalry Vol. in the War of Rebellion and who was honorably discharged at St/ Louis MO on the 21st day of July 1863 by recommendation of the Invalid Board that said John Shelton while in the line of duty at Rolla MO on or about the 1st of April 1863 contracted Disease of Lungs, Rhumatisms, General debility, from which he died in the County of Greene in the State of MO on the 25th day of April 1883.

That she was married under the name of Temperance Taylor to said John Shelton on the 22nd day of December, 1835 by Squire Robt Green at Springfield, Robertson County, in the State of Tennessee there being no legal barrier to such marriage, that she nor her husband had previously married, that she has to the present date remained his widow, that she had no children under the age 16 years at the death of her husband, that she has not in any manner engaged in or aided or abetted, the rebellion in the United States, that her husband during his lifetime made application for Pension but his claim got mixed up with a Pension claim of another John Shelton of the State of Illinois and was finally lost but not rejected, that her Post Office address is Pembina, Christian County, MO.
