    There are a lot of Sheltons living in that area.
    I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.

    I would have said that it was the NC area, but apparently not!

    FWIW, those were Union soldiers who had come home on leave and were ambushed by Confederates as they prepared to return to their regiments.

    the Shelton graves are not directly related to the Shelton Laurel massacre.
