HAZELWOOD, sometimes spelled Hazlewood is a Virginia Surname that has my interest because more than one of my Southwestern Va families married into this family; mainly in Patrick County, Virginia.
 
 

My g-grandfather was Charles Madison Shelton "Maddy" son of Thomas and Elizabeth Shelton.  Maddy had two brothers who married Hazelwood women.

Peter T  Shelton, first married a sister to Maddy's wife. Peter's first wife was Demaras "Mary" Napier.  She died young and Peter remarried to Teresa "Tinsa" Hazelwood, daughter of Si (Josiah) and Ruth Rogers Hazelwood.  Although they divorced later, they had two daughters that I know of; Alverta M Shelton born 1895 and Capitola "Cappy" T Shelton born 1897.

 

Peter and Maddy Shelton's younger brother, Samuel E Shelton, married a daughter of John R and Elizabeth Hazelwood in 1876, Patrick Co VA.

Sarah A "Sis" Hazelwood and Sam Shelton had only one child that I know about. She was Mary Elizabeth Shelton, born 1878. She married Robert Hardin Martin in 1899.  They had eight children.

Maddy, Peter and Sam's sister, Mary Jane Shelton Blackard, had a son, Robert Lee Blackard who married Margaret Hazelwood circa 1910.  Mary Jane's sister-in-law, Mary Nancy Blackard,(married Alex. Shelton)  had a son, Haymon Critz Shelton born 1860 who married Ruth Starr Hazelwood....and my Reynolds and Sutphin families married into the Hazelwood families as well.....well you get the idea.
