SHEEK posted by Irene Wright on Wednesday, February 13, 2002

Searching for family of a Joshua Wilson SHEEK who died in Pendleton Umatilla Co., Or and is buried in Olney cemetery. He was born May 11, 1815 in Rowan County, North Carolina and died June of 1898. He married Lucinda Groce in Yadkin County, North Carolina, June 23, 1833. They had the following children: Sarah K., James Benjamin, Martha, Christian Riley, Malinda D., Mary Ann, Susan C., Jessee Lee and Lloyd O. SHEEK. Lloyd O. lived in Pendleton and assume Joshua lived with him as his wife died in July of 1885 and is buried in Linn County, Kansas as is several of their children. Hope there is someone out there who can give me some help on this family. Thanks.
