Since the sources seem to be combining the 2 Thomas Shelton's here is the other Major Thomas Shelton DIED 1824 Louisa County Virginia birth before 1760???
The sited book "History and genealogies" By W.H. Miller" page 270 "The Children of Lucy Harris & William Shelton #8-- "Thomas Shelton, sold out 1817, to Francis McGee, at the time was living in Augusta County."
He is said to have been killed by Indians, 1793, so how could he have "sold out i 1812"? So are these the wrong parents for this Thomas Shelton?
"THOMAS SHELTON was an early emigrant from Virginia to Madison county, Ky. Here he became a member of Tates Creek church of Separate Baptists, which was gathered by Andrew Tribble, in 1786. Mr. Shelton was a licensed preacher, in this church, as early as 1790. He was a minister in South Kentucky Association, till 1793, when he, with others, seceded from that fraternity, and went into the constitution of Tates Creek Association.
The same year, he was appointed by the latter fraternity, to bear a letter of correspondence to the General Committee of Virginia Baptists, which met that year, at Muddy Creek meeting-house, in Powhatan county, Va. He started on his journey, to perform this duty, but did not reach his proposed destination. As he was traveling on horseback, through the mountains, he was attacked by Indians, and massacred. He left a family, from whom have sprung a numerous posterity. Among the latter, are the venerable Dr. Thomas Shelton Moberly, of Richmond, Ky., a grandson, and Rev. R. M. Dudley, D. D., President of Georgetown College, and Rev. A. C. Capcrton, D. D., Editor of the Western Recorder, great grandsons."
