Just a note of interest, and on second thought regarding your WHITE family research:
Benjamin Sheldon, Jr., b. 6 Dec 1821 in NY, d. 3 Apr 1897 in LaGrange, Lorain County Ohio married to Lucy C. WHITE, who was b. September 1823 in NY, and d. 4 April 1906 in Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio.
This Benjamin is an elder sibling to my gg-grandfather, who was David F. Sheldon.
If you happen to come across this Lucy C. White in your research of the White family, please let me know.I would appreciate any White family (parents, etc.) information for her.
Their children were Hiram Dexter (1848 - ?), Susan (about 1853 - 1865), James Benjamin (about 1853 - 1921), Sylvina (1856 - 1929) (married Charles Obitts and then Bloomfield), and then Lucy A. (1863 - 1921), (married Hiram Forbes).I have a good amount of information for the children.
Thank you.Best regards.
