Shields While at James Shields Find A Grave page I noticed your comment that you descended from James thru his son Robert. I too am from that same branch, and have been researching all leads for over 3 decades concerning his ancestry. I notice you maintain Blaine Shields site as well. It has been quite a few years since I have been to Ruffner's Cemetery, but there are quite a few Shields buried there. I've never taken pictures of the headstones, and would have to retrace my steps to find quite a few of them. I am glad that you have memorialized those who are part of our joint family. Thank you, distant cousin!
Shields Hello. James Shields is also my Great great great great grandfather. Earlier today, I went out and took photos of all six fathers leading back to James. At least I tried. I cannot find Robert's, though I found Jane's, his widow. I would be eager to correspond with you and Marla to see what you both know.
