Bio and Links
Bio Photo In memory of my father, Jack L. Sheldon, Sr. (1925 - 2011), our immediate family is originally from Michigan. My parents movedd to Mesa, Arizona in 1971, among other reasons, to care for my grandmother, Nellie (Page) Sheldon Nolan (1890 - 1973). It was a visit to her gravesite in the Mesa City Cemetery in 1999 when I realized just how little we knew about our Sheldon roots.

Through my father's cousin, Roberta "Bobbie" (Mains) Whitbeck (1916 - 2004), who had our family Bible, a connection was made to Sheldon Family Association records. Much of my genealogy researh has then been focused on this family (ggg-grandparents Sheldon and their 7 children).

Paternal interests include: SHELDON, JOHNSON, CRANDALL, BURR, PAGE, MEAD, SHERMAN, & AUSTIN. (Descendants of genealogies of John Sheldon of South Kingstown, RI (SFA No. S0013), Elder John Crandall of Rhode Island (twice), Captain John Johnson, and Benjamin Burr of Hartford, Connecticut).

Maternal interests include: SHUSTER, OVERPACK, McCARTHY, BUSH, GERTHOFFER, LARKINS, & THORN. (Descendants of Daniel Shuster, well known Revolutionary War soldier, and related to Silas Overpack who invented the Michigan Big Wheels that brought great improvements to early 1800's logging days in the mitten state).

My wife, Barbara, is a descendant of the Oihus and Trudeau families of Walsh County, North Dakota.

Thank you for visiting and for those leaving memorials and photographs.

RE: Frank West - Greenwood Cemetery
We corresponded about 3 years ago - when I was just getting my ffeet wet in this rewarding hobby, or should I say addiction? I have learned so very much! Can we correspond again off line, vi e-mail. I can give my Wellington West updates, and ask what other gems you may have unearthed!

Thanks for the transfer of Franklin. I will visit his grave this fall (home for a good long family visit and research trip!).

RE: Frank West in the Wellington Ohio Cemetery
I can delete his, as I now manage it, and send the links through the channels to get parents connected. Can I supply you a brief paragraph to add to the bio section outlining the wife? Do you have any further research on Frank?

Frank West in the Wellington Ohio Cemetery
Oh dear! Looks like there are 2 Memorials in Wellington for Frank West (#45031359). I am working on his wife, Viola Burlingam, and now have a pretty good time line sketch of her life to add. I have been granted some time ago the management of the other memorial. I realized today the duplicate. How should we proceed? Have you done any additional work on Frank West, or his wife? Look forward to talking with you again over the Lorain County Wests. Judy West

RE: Gordon Oihus
Hi Jack,

Sorry for your loss. The Request a Photo button is right below the cemetery photo. I just made a photo request, so hopefully someone will fulfill it soon. I am not in the Grafton area. Thanks for your email! Hope you are enjoying your day!

Kind regards,

re: Gordon Oihus
Hi Debbie: I can't seem to locate the "request photo" button on Gordon's bio page. Are you in the Grafton, Walsh County, area? Can you help me leave a photo request for Gordon's marker? Thank you. Best regards. Jack Sheldon (son in law).

RE: Gordon Oscar Oihus
You're most welcome, Jack. That sounds like a good idea to wait awhile.

My condolences to you and your family in the loss of your father-in-law, Jack.

Kind regards,

re: Gordon Oscar Oihus
Hi Debbie: Thank you for your suggested edit to my father-in-law's memorial. I will update the memorial pending approval from family members. Although the obituary is customary, I am giving just a little time for healing before diving into making the inquiries. I understand that the obituary is already public, and we wrote it, after all. We have more to share. My very best regards. Jack.

RE: Midland Cemetery Photos - Branson
You are welcome...and it is a large task to photograph a cemetery. It took me all summer to do it. I use it as my ME is quiet and I get to do a lot of thinking.

Luella Johnson Moehle
I have been trying to contact you for years and then I came upon this site and joined.
My name is Sue Ann Moehle Allen, I live in Citrus County, Fl.,. but I am from Wellington, Ohio. My grandmother was Luella Johnson Moehle, my father was Gaylord Bird Moehle.
I had taken so much of you information on the Moehle and Bassett, etc., side of my family, which I would like to thank you for all the time you have put into our history. I have learned a lot from you and applied what I learned and asked my mother, Mary Helen Cornish Moehle Wrobble, who is still living at the age of 95 years, to fill in the blanks.
I have one picture of my greatgrandmother, Lillian Johnson Bassett, and some of my grandmother Luella, if you are interested.
Thank you,
Sue Ann Moehle Allen

I am going thru the Death Ceriticates of Calhoun Co Michigan and found one for a infant male of Jack And Nina buried in the Partello Cemetery. Which I linked to parents. Would like management of this memorial?
Thank you
