I received the information on Dorothy Sheafe from Mary Ellen Owen, whom I quote in her reply to me as follows:
"Anna Woodward was married to Dorothy Sheafe's father and not the Rev. Henry Whitfield per: English Origins of New England Families Vol. III Gary Boyd Roberts Baltimore, The Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1985 Reprinted from The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. 'An Extension of the Sheafe Ancestry' by John Brooks Trelfall By Walter K. Watkins, Esq., of Malden, Mass. Book found at the Georgia Archives, Atlanta, Ga."
I'm a little confused, as you seem to reference the same.I have not seen the referenced book, and now wonder what is right myself.Sorry 'bout that, glad you raised the issue.Might warrant another revisit to the book.
