HI, I'm part of the Shelhorse family of Pittsylvania Co., VA. My line is from Jacob b. 1789 to daughter Martha Jane who married William Finch Gardner. I'd like to find the document which show that Martha Jane was the daughter of Jacob and his wife, so I can see the wife's name. And prove that Martha Jane was the daughter of Jacob. I believe that Jacob Shelhorse is the one that has a service record in the War of 1812. It lists him as in the 6 Reg't (Coleman's, January - May 1814)Virginia Militia, private, roll box 187, roll exct 602.
Any help is greatly appreicated.
