Looking for Joseph Shields and Martha Veatch, his wife. Joseph Shields was born in Augusta Co., Virginia, 1773. Martha Veatch was born 1779 in Sevier Co., Tennessee, where they were married in 1799. Between 1805 and 1808 their lives took them to Louisville, Ky., then to Harrison Co., Indiana until abt. 1828. That year they migrated to and settled in Fulton Co., Illinois. Their ten (10) known children are: Nathan V., b. 1801; Robert A., b. 1803; David b. 1805; Eleanor E., b. 1808; Elizabeth, b. 1811; Hiram, b. 1814; Nancy b. 1816; Jesse V., b. 1819; unk. child, b. abt. 1821; and, Jane, b. 1823. I want to learn of their children, who were Martha Veatch's parents and siblings, and where they lived.
Joseph Shields and Martha Veatch are my 4th great-grandparents. Contact: Sue Mendenhall, firstname.lastname@example.org
