Sarah Ann (also known as Sarianne) Spikes Shelton is a great-great-grandmother on my mother's side.  She was born September 28, 1871, in Sardis, Winn Parish, Louisiana, the third of four children and only daughter of Levi Lewis Spikes (1805-1881) and his second wife, Leah Lucy Pickering (or Pickens) Barton (1835-1903).  She married Levi Marion Shelton (1863-1941) on December 30, 1884.  They had twelve children, although only nine survived to adulthood.  My great-grandmother, Addilee Tennessee Shelton Wolfe Odom Harris (1890-1977), was third-born, but is the oldest of the six girls and three boys who survived.  Sarah Shelton died April 9, 1935, in Montgomery, Grant Parish, Louisiana.  She is buried next to her husband in the Brown Cemetery (aka Brown-Swindle Cemetery) in Sardis, Winn Parish, Louisiana.
