There is a public member tree at Ancestry.com that suggests that Philip and John were the sons of:

John Sheets, born abt 1800 in Virgina (and)
Lydia Kendner Kantner, born abt 1805 in Pennslvania

However, there are no sources other than census records.

There were Sheetz in Fairfield Co., OH as early as the 1820 census.

1820
Frederick Sheetz, Beme (probably Bern), Fairfield, Ohio
Jacob Sheetz, Beme (probably Bern), Fairfield, Ohio

1830
Adam Sheets, Liberty, Fairfield, Ohio
George Sheets, Rush Creek, Fairfield, Ohio
Jacob Sheets, Hocking, Fairfield, Ohio
John Sheets, Violet, Fairfield, Ohio
Joseph Sheets, Bern, Fairfield, Ohio
Maria Sheets, Bern, Fairfield, Ohio
Mathias Sheets, Liberty, Fairfield, Ohio

1840
Jacob Sheats, Berne, Fairfield, Ohio
John Sheats, Pleasant, Fairfield, Ohio
John Sheats, Berne, Fairfield, Ohio
Joseph Sheats Berne, Fairfield, Ohio
William Sheats Liberty, Fairfield, Ohio
Addam Shootts, Viloet, Fairfield, Ohio

1850 Ohio, Fairfield, Bern

There was a Jacob Sheets (b abt 1796 in VA) and Mary (b abt 1799 in PA) listed with children Frederick (b abt 1823), Diana (b abt 1831), and John (b. abt 1844).

There was a John Sheets (b abt 1800 in VA) and Lydia (b abt 1805 in PA) listed with children Susan (b abt 1835), and Nancy (b abt 1847).

I'm wondering if Jacob and John were brothers. Both born in VA and both married to wives born in PA.
