hi...Charlotte Helton Cunningham, born to Cosley Hill Helton and Lucy Finney Helton. Born in Roanoke VA 1959. When my father was preparing to retire from N&W Railroad, he found a document that had his name spelled as Helton, instead of Hylton, but we are all related-all u have to do is see a bunch of us together and the family rememblance is strong
let me also add that my father is Keith's dad's uncle lol
My father is rudulph a hylton from new haven Connecticut ....
Keith, in listing the extended family names, you had Page. As with Hilton,with a i ,y , and e, there is also Paige. Bent Mountain family is Paige. Your cuz Ron " Dujy " Paige and his wife and my BFF Carolyn Foster Paige would love to be added to the list. I have already told them about the web site.
Thanks Joyce. I will add "Paige" in about five minutes. My regards to my cousins Dujy and Carolyn Paige. KOH
I'm the daughter of Richard Crockett and Lillian Taylor Crockett, and the grandaughter of Selena Bell Hylton Crockett who was the daughter of Henry Harrison and Cynthia Hylton. She was Keith's great-aunt. I'm married to James with two grown children, Tanya and Daryl. I'm excited to know more and meet our relatives. Thanks Keith!
I also meant to add we are part of the Roanoke relatives, born and raised in Salem and attended G.W. Carver until integration moved us to Andrew Lewis.

Feel free to leave comments (even corrections) on any of these posts (old and current ones) at any time.If we don't record our family history, it gets lost. Your comments are important.I will do periodic posts, but this blog is really an open forum for visitors to this site.Although this website was created by moi (Keith Orlando Hilton), I prefer that it now be ran by a committee of relatives. Interested? Especially young computer savvy young people.
