Music historian wishes to contact descendants of Benjamin Frank Shelton (1901-63) of Knox and Whitley Counties. Mr Shelton sang old-time songs and ballads, played banjo, and made recordings in Bristol and Johnson City, TN, in 1927-28. At that time, he was working as a barber at the City Barber Shop in Corbin, KY. If you knew Mr Shelton, or can put me in touch with his descendants, I shall be very pleased to hear from you. Please email me at: <tonyrussell@bluetone.demon .co.uk>. Thank you.
