George:You are the first person not a Sheldon with information about family. What is your connection to the Ulrich name?Are we related?Are you a Lawyer, a Bill collector, a Genealogist or someone like me just looking for ties to the past?Whatever, thanks for getting back to me.
John S Ulrich b:24Jan1839 d:16Sep1910 married Phoebe M Bly b:Jan 1840 d:03Mar1906.
Their son, Joseph Hollopeter Ulrich b:08Jun1864 d:05Jan1938 Married 1887 Ella Gertrude Ungnast b:24Aug1864 d;22Dec1941
Their daughter Ruth Pauline Ulrich b:Sep1894 d:1980 married21Jun1917 Everett Lee Sheldon b:07Dec1891 d:Mar 1978
Everett and Ruth were my grandparents.I have got the Sheldon's back to John Sheldon (b:1630 d:????) lived in South Kings Towne Rhode Island.

Thanks for your very quick response.
Your note was VERY helpful.You provided me with the maiden name of the wife of John S. Ulrich, "M. Phoebe BLY," something I did not have. This will enable me to look for her, her parents and siblings in the 1850 and 1860 US Census, prior to her marriage.That will give me her roots. BLY is an uncommon name, and I ought to be able to find her easily.
You asked how I am related to the ULRICH family.I am not related, but one of our close family friends and neighbors since about 1974, here in Fort Washington Maryland, is a Great Grandson of the Union Soldier and Civil War Veteran, John S. Ulrich.I am not a professional genealogist, but my degrees are in history and I have worked in professional research for DoD/J2 and the Army Reserve, from both of which I am now retired. Genealogy is thus a hobby of mine and I sometimes will research the families of good friends, just for fun, which is how I happened to look into your Ulrich Family up in Watsontown, Northumberland County, PA.So there you have it.It's kind of like a crossword, sudoku, or chess problem.
I would like to work further with you on your family, and I still have more data that might be of interest to your children and grandchildren.More soon!
