father - Daniel Newton "Dan" Sheffield (b.1832, GA-d.1898, Milam Co., TX)
mother - Margaret "Peggie" Holland (b.1830, GA - d. 1920, Milam Co., TX)
I THINK Daniel's brother is my ancestor James S. Shuffield (b. 1824, GA - d. 1907, Milam Co. TX) (Sheffield) buried in the same cemetery.
Or, they might be cousins ... I am attempting to undertake a Shuffield/Sheffield DNA Reconstruction Project and need MALE DESCENDANT OF ELIJAH who has SHEFFIELD SURNAME ... test will track Y-male gene and is only tracking common ancestor's gene ... We have males on James' side, needing males on Daniel's side ...
