Shelton Cemetery
[aka Auxier Cemetery]

Picture Donated by Kyle Shoultz

Shelton Cemetery is about 2 miles north of the Dahlgren Township building on the property of Lavern Peters. It is in a wooded area (pictured grove of trees) in the center of a bean field.. not very many stones still standing here...
It is also known as Auxier Cemetery, since the Auxier Creek runs right near this.

Large stone is of my 5th great grandfather Joseph Shelton. They also have an infant baby here but its grave is unmarked. There is a LARGE pile of stones in the center of the cemetery.. Most of these have the last name of GARRISON on them,
