I don't know her name. My Grandfather is listed as being the child of Henry and Mary Melton.  In letters he wrote, he referred to himself as a poor Orphan boy. In a later census, Henry melton is listed as being in My Grandfather's household as an Uncle. I found a John Melton listed as being his father, but no mention of his mother. She was supposed to be of Cherokee descent. He mentioned seeing the "old shack" in Watson, AR. where his mother died. Do you know more about her?
