Are you talking about this George?:
I'm looking for the father of George Sheets, born circa 1813 in
Pennsylvania. Down to the Census records of 1840 he was living in
Jefferson Twp., Dauphin Co., PA. I believe he died before the 1860
Census and was married to Mary____ b. circa 1816 in PA. They had the
following children (all born in PA and assumedly in Jefferson Twp.,
1. Joseph J. b. July 1836
2. Isaac, b. ca 1837
3. Lucy Ann b. ca 1839
4. Sarah Ann b. ca 1841
5. Catharine b. ca 1845
6. William H. b. ca 1848
