Welcome to our continual genealogical effort. This page represents the ongoing journey of our genealogical research. We try to be as accurate as possible and document all that we possibly can. However, this is not always 100% possible. so some of the information we have is based on family memories and in Marcel Proust's words "Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were." If you have different information, we are always glad to clarify what documentation we have on the subject. If you want to know what new information we may have, please contact us, we will respond to your query (my wife sooner than I). The truth of genealogy is that it is an ongoing project and what we have posted here was accurate at the time of it's posting but may not be two weeks later, so please feel welcome to contact us. This new site does offer some advantages over our old design. It does offer a user option and login which will give you more access to different information. There has been lots of new family members added on both sides of out trees so browse around and I hope you find some interesting links and avenues to explore.
Most Wanted - I am looking for information about these ancestors. Can you help?

I am Rick (Richard) Sheldon This website is based on genealogy work done by my wife,(the Watson, Marsh Lines) and myself. Without her efforts from the beginning, this site would not be here today. She started this over 20 years ago and convinced me to get involved.

Invaluable resources have been the books "The Hinckel Book", edited by the Sumners, the Tarvin Books, published by the Tarvin Family Group.

We would like to thank everyone, who has reached out and provided us with information for this site. People who pursue genealogy are some of the most open and helpful people I have ever met, without a doubt they are quick to share any information and help that they can. You can contact us at
