Birth*19 October 1801Hulton was born on 19 October 1801 at Accomack Co, VA. Bible records show he was born 19 Oct 1802..3,4 
Land inherited*1819He inherited land in 1819 at Accomack Co, VA. Whitelaws says no record of the death of Richard Kellam III was noted, but in later years sales of adjacent lands gave the owner of this property as a John Kellam, who died in 1773 leaving a wife Bridget and a son George as heir-at-law. The latter died in 1819 and the next year his land was surveyed for a division among the numerous heirs; his holding totaled 384 acres, including a large part of the land north of the crossroad which had been acquired by him or his fahter. The home and 7 acres went to a Hulton Kellam, who bought up the interests of some of the other heirs. In 1858 a commissioner sold 300 acres of the late Hulton Kellam to Samuel K. Shield and because of his ownership the post office called Shield's later came into being, as well as Shield's Wharf on the creek, which ceased to exist following the demise of the steamboat traffic. After the death of Shield, his large holdings were divided amon his heirs, followed by some inter-family transactions, resulting in Alfred H. Shield becoming the owner of the home place of 115 acres.
