I too am a descendant of Arnet Shields. My great grandmother was Adelia Ann Shields. My internet crashed and I am at library right now. I will try to get info to you ASAP. I have a Lot of info for you on Tipton, Shields and Guthrie families. Where are you located now? I am down just north of Indianapolis. I would love to see the documents you found and possibly photocopy or photograph them.
