I am looking for any information on William Henry Sheffield. b 1821 in Lynchburg, VA, d. 1865 in Lovingston, VA.he married Martha Susan Harris.He was in the civil war, took sick and died at home in 1865. Later in life, Martha Susan applied for and received a Civil War Widows pension. She died in 1913.
They had children: Albert Sidney and Silas Davis b. 1861, Robert Franklin b. 1848, Lucien Judson b. 1850, Virginia b. 1859, Benjamin b. 1856 and William b. 1857.
William Henry's parents may have been a John Sheffield and Sarah (Sally) Ellis, but I have no info on this.Also, William Henry might have been a wagon builder??? His twin sons (Albert and Silas) both worked for the railroads.Albert was my g-grandfather
