Re: Shields-Bell of Rockbridge and Augusta Counties, VA
I believe that Evelina Shields is the daughter of Joseph Shields and Sarah "Sally" Camden.Joseph Shields appears to have been the brother of Sarah who married John F. Camden and John who married Pamela Camden.Joseph, Sarah, and John Shields were the children of James and Rachel Shields.
In the Rockbridge Chancery Records I found a document where Benjamin F. Camden (who married Joseph and Sarah's daughter Eliza A. Shields) sued Joseph Eskew and his wife Sarah, the widow of Joseph Shields; George W. Shields, Samuel W. Paxton-administrator for Alexander Paxton-deceased, John Kerr, John F. Camden-administrator for Joseph Shields-deceased; John L. Beard and Patsy his wife, William C. Bell and Evelina his wife, and John C. Shields.((Even though it reads William C. Bell, I believe it is the same person))
Eventually all the children of Joseph Shields and Sally Camden sold their shares of their father's estate to their brother Colonel John Camden Shields.The home was located near Riverside Station.You can see the Arhitectural Report and picture of the home at the LVA Digital Site, Virginia Historical Inventory.
Hope this helps.If you find anything on James and Rachel Shields please keep me in mind.I'm descended from John F. Camden and Sarah "Sally" Shields.
