Linda,


I know that the Thomas Shercliffe who married Mary Beam and Nancy WALKER was
a brother to Joseph Anthanatius SHERCLIFFE Sr.


And Bob Alvey posted this the other day to this list.

Descendants of Thomas Shercliffe, Jr

So Who do these Children Belong to if not Thomas Shercliffe born 1727.

I don't think they belong to Thomas Shercliffe who married Elizabeth
Mattingly. If They do they had 12 children.
