Anna, the daughter of Jacob and Rebecca Hays, was born January 7, 1826, in Pickaway County, OH. She married James Lovejoy (yr. unknown) and moved to MN in 1854. James died in 1857. It is not known if there were any children from this marriage.
Anna then married William A. Sheldon March 11, 1860, at the home of L D Lovejoy, with L D and Aurelia Lovejoy as witnesses, in Amador Township, MN.
It is believed there were no children from this marriage as William's will only mentions his half-sister, Mary Ann Willoughby; his niece Mrs. Julia (Lyon?) Pickle; and nephews Carl (H.?) Lyon, William H. Delisle, Hinsel Delisle, and W W Willoughby.
Anna died [it is believed] June 24, 1896, burial unknown.
William died January 8, 1914 and is buried in Sunrise Cemetery, Sunrise, Chisago Cnty, MN.
