      I am just looking to connect with and learn about other Sheldon’s. Here is a little bit about myself and my direct Sheldon family:
      I was born in 1992 and raised in Wilmington Delaware. My father James Gary Sheldon (1963, alive and well) was the younge… See more

      Lauren Sheldon Well, Lauren – we are almost neighbors! Special greetings from Lancaster County! My clan is from NY/NJ/PA. There is a batch of Sheldons right across the river from you in Cumberland County NJ. There is a Sheldon Avenue in Millville, NJ.

      Lauren Sheldon Yes, we are almost neighbors. It is interesting to read your posts. We seem to be connected. With Oddy in your line, our common grandfather is probably Richard. My g-grandfather moved to Lancaster County around 1915 from Orange County … See more

      Do you plan to do an autosomal test or see if your dad will do a Y-DNA test? a Y-test might tie him to George which would sure be interesting to see.

      Missy Rummie Unfortunately I am so new to all of this that I’m not sure which test is which! I will definitely be doing more research in the coming weeks. I’ve always taken a liking to researching my history I just never knew how so I am getting a late start.

      That was my problem too – had interest beginning around age 19, but couldn’t figure out how to get started at first either.

      Missy Rummie
      Ask all the questions you like – between us, we’ll probably know the answer. If not, we’ll probably know which way to point you to figure out.

      Dale Lee Sheldon I am very new to this so perhaps my records need some tweaking but these are some very, very rough draft notes I have based on Ancestry results. Once I have the funds for DNA I would be more than happy to submit that for viewing.

      Yes, Godfrey was the father of William Sheldon who went to Salem, MA. And his son was Ephraim and I believe Ephraim. I can’t recall if Ephraim had a son named Lemuel, I think he did, but not the same Lemuel that was grandfather of Oddy. Oddy is from… See more

      Lauren Sheldon I’m afraid yDNA has to be from one of the male Sheldon’s as the Y-chromosome that is tested is only passed from father to son. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be your father if his brother is willing, of if you have a brother, or a male Sheldon cousin.

      I think I can try my dad or brother. My uncle lives all the way in Florida unfortunately. Mark Ashby was an only child who had two sons, my father who has two girls and one son none of which plan on having any children. My uncle has no children as well… See more

      Missy Rummie
      Lauren Sheldon If you test, you can get the autosomal results which might help, but doing the Y-test with your dad, uncle or brother (really, any male in your family of the same Sheldon surname line) would be more helpful trying to go further back. I’… See more

      Lauren Sheldon So many lines are dying out it is important to get the DNA before they are gone. My parents both died before DTC DNA testing was available….so many mysteries died with them…

      Dale has answered you correctly. For the YDNA it needs to be a male surnamed Sheldon from your line.

      Paul died as an infant in 1891. But I found that the other brother, Thomas, went to his maternal grandparents – Thomas and Isabella Talley. But it doesn’t appear that he had any children. Will look into Edgar and Clarence.

      Dale Lee Sheldon I have been in contact with a male Sheldon who is Edgar’s Nephew (I believe) and is the son of late Mitchell G. Sheldon. His name is Scott Sheldon.
