Re: William G. Sheldon b. 09 October 1859 Illinois
Greetings Rose Sheldon Newton:
I thought I would follow up on my own follow up---as it is clear life is happening much faster than it was when I was a child--and much faster than is normal.
As far as my research goes--and this is not voodoo stuff, I am not conjuring the dead here--William G. (Or "C.") Sheldon was born 09 October, 1860--according to happy people above ground--in Illinois in these United States of America.
My beloved Great Great Grandfather married one Carrie Luella Fox, of impeccable family reputation----going back to the 1600's in Boston, MA.
These Sheldons gave birth to at least four children, as is evident in the 1900 U.S. Census in Newman, California---they are listed as Cora L. Sheldon (B. April 1887), Eva May Sheldon (My Great Grandmother b. 20 October 1888), Etta J. Sheldon (B. June 1890), and Orra Hastings Sheldon (B. 14 May 1893).
There are currently five Grandchildren above ground, that would love to speak with you about their Grandfather, William Sheldon of Illinois.But, most of them are gettingolder by the day--so time is of the essence.If you are interested in hearing their stories, please respond to this email.
I hope you are well.
