No I don't know personally of Ronald but wonder if he is the Ronald Lawrence Sheally noted in the material I have as the grandson of John Blackstone and Leila Beckham Sheally and son of William Thornton Sheally. If this is the case, he is probably the compiler of the information I have.
I would love to receive information on the Sheallys though. My greatgrandfather, Leroy Sheally, moved his family to VA right before WWI and we have been here ever since.
Following is the information I have on the Sheallys: Michael and Katharina Haackh Schule (16__-1711)
Hans Jorg and Anna Maria Hebin Schule (1649-1729)
Johannes and Anna Katharina Weber Schule (1685-1712)
Johannes and Maria Margareta Hermann (nee Haussler) Schule arrived in America in October 1752 and last name became Shele or Shely (1711-1768); they had 7 children
Johann Wendelin and Anna Mary Epting Shealy (1744-1820)
David T. Sr. and Mary Elizabeth Werts Shealy (1783-18__)
David T. Jr. and Lucinda Brown Shealy (1806-1885)
John Wesley and Evaline Goolsby Sheally (1834-1908), Eufala, AL; 8 children: Mary (Mollie), Charles A., W
