Note
Served as Captain in the Revolutionary War.
Note
Andrew Scott Dennison gives his death date as 1830. This seems more credible than the unsourced 13 JUN 1847 date listed here previously, since that would involve him living to the ripe old age of 97. Dennison also lists the cemetery: Pine Creek Church Cemetery, Floyd County, Virginia http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/floyd/bios/scott2.txt He did live to the ripe old age of 97.
Note
Another Revolutionary Soldier gone Capt. Daniel Shelor breathed his last at the residence of George Shelor, Esq., in the County of Floyd, on the 12th day of February, 1847, in the 97th year of his age. He served in the struggle for American Independence, first as a Lieutenant, and secondly as a Captain. His spirit has gone (it is believed,) where the bollowing of thecannons, the clamor of the drum, and the shrill voice of the fife are known and heard no more—but, "Where anthems of rapture unceasingly roll, And the smile of the Lord is the feast of the soul." The Lynchburg Virginian, April 12, 1847

Inscription: Daniel Shelor 1750 - 1847 Maryland Captain Continental Line Revolutionary War Captain Daniel Shelor was the son of Lawrence Shelor and the husband of Mary Wickham Shelor (1756-1834). They were married in 1784. Captain Daniel Shelor, from Maryland, came to the banks of Furnace Stack Creek in Floyd County and opened an iron mine and smelter in the early 1790's. He mined the ore, refined it and made cooking utensils which he then hauled by wagon to Lynchburg, the closest town, to sell. It is said that when he hauled his first load of pots and pans into Lynchburg, he could not find buyers and out of sheer frustration, or perhaps good salesmanship, he threw one of his pots against a rock in the unpaved street. To the dismay of those who witnessed his act, the pot didn't break as most of the brittle iron of the day would have normally done. It seems that the ore that Captain Shelor was mining contained just enough copper to create an alloy which made his wares more durable than others available. After seeing Captain Shelor's pot didn't shatter when thrown against a rock, he quickly sold the entire load to the merchants and townspeople of Lynchburg. He then returned to Floyd County where he continued to operate the smelter and mine until once again, the nation he had fought to help create needed volunteers and Captain Shelor, already in his sixties, walked to Norfolk, Virginia to offer his assistance in the War of 1812. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=24193049
Note
Daniel was either born in Bavaria or Maryland. Several online trees list Bavaria; a genealogical index lists Maryland. If he was born in Bavaria, he came to the New World at a very young age. According to A.S. Dennison, Daniel's father "came to America some twenty-five years before the revolutionary war", which would have been right around Daniel's birth date.
