New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

This photo was made after Joshua Sturgill's death in 1894, but family lore says that Joshua Sturgill would never allow his photograph to be made.
DavidSheets1805-1902.jpg973 viewsThis is the Rev. David Sheets, son of Andrew and Mary Shearer Sheets, husband of Martha Davis Sheets. (David was born in Ashe Co, but moved to Grayson county, so I'm not sure if he would go in the Ashe or Grayson group.) Photo courtesy of Troylene Sheets White and Ricky Sheets

pennington sisters 946 viewsThese are the daughters of Stephen and Johanna Pennington; Cansada Jane (known as Aunt Jenny to the family, I believe, but certainly NOT Cansada, though she was enumerated on at least one census with that name) is in the center. Youngest daughter Martha Caroline (Sturgill) is on the right; Orlean (Young) on the left. I have no idea who the accordian player is. He doesn't look like the Pennington's only son Cicero to my eye.
