I know this is probably a long shot but I'm trying to research the Sheilds of Pennsylvania. The furthest back I can get to is:
Joseph R Sheilds (1806-1867) married to Mary A Donovan (1815-1898)
I believe his parents were named Joseph and Mary also.
I know nothing else except the siblings of Joseph R who are:
George S b. 1800
Susan S b. 1802
Mary Ann b. 1807
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
