which is the age of our John William Sheets at time. There was no mother
listed. No other record shows anything that records a spouse or children. This may be our only clue.
A John Sheets was found having written a will. The only clues we have to this is the names he had left this belongings to. They were Philip Sheets, son, Franklin Sheets, son, Adam Sheets, son, Simon Sheets, son. There were otherSheets on his will but no mention of their relationship. Peter, Jonathan, Henry, and Andrew Sheets. The will was read June 1, 1854 after John Sheets had died.
The Hulvey Clan Book at the FHL says that John Sheets was born in 1795 and wasmarried to an Elizabeth but no last name and nothing more was said. I have to assume that he was married to Sarah Shott first then later married Elizabeth if he indeed did marry a second wife. I also am more inclined to beleive he was born in 1792 than in 1795 because he would only have been 19 when he got married if he was born in 1795.
AF has him born in 1794 with an older sister born in 1792.
Death records of Augusta County Virginia have him 54 years old died April 30, 1854 parents Philip and Catharine Sheets recorded by Elizabeth Sheets.
John married Sarah (Sally) SHOTT, daughter of Unknown and Unknown, on 24 Feb 1814 in , Augusta, Virginia. (Sarah (Sally) SHOTT was born between 1792 and 1794 in Whitepan, Montgomery, Pennsylvania, died in 1845 in , Augusta, Virginia and was buried in Old Salem Church Cem., Augusta Co., VA.)
