....Andrew apparently spelled his surname Sheets and not Sheetz. Several of his children however used the Sheetz spelling.
....I am not sure of Andrew's parents, but they may be George Sheetz x Maria Forman.
....Andrew (apparently) and Catherine Strayer were born in the Harrisburg area of Dauphin(Lebanon) Co, PA, in 1817 and 1820. They were married in 1838, Dauphin Co, PA.
....Three of their children were born in PA. Mary 1839, Aaron Monroe 1842, Eliz 1843.
....They must have removed to Freeport, Winneshiek Co., Iowa, to become very successful farmers either in 1853 or 1854, as the last four children were born in Iowa.
....They came to Freeport with Catherine's brother George Strayer, to join John Strayer, who had made original claims on a great deal of land in the Decorah to Freeport area along the Upper Iowa River starting in 1851.
....The last four children were Lucy Catherine 1855, Ella 1858, Angenettie 1861, Melinda 1865.
....I would like more info on Andrew's line. or
