Jacob Shutz was born about 1730-1740 in Germany and died 1809 in Augusta County, Virginia. Jacob Shutz arrived in Pennsylvania on the ship, Snow Rowan, in 9-29-1753 from Rotterdam to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
On the Snow Rowan, a Matthias Shutz is also listed. A Mattheus Schuz married Catherine Schneider on 8-11-1760 at the German Reformed Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, the only mention of Jacob in Pennsylvania with another person named Schuetz was Mary Magdalena Schuetz who married George Peter Bock. A family legend states that two brothers came to Augusta County, Virginia from Pennsylvania. Another story (that I found on the Internet) is that three brothers, Jacob, Mathias, and Yost immigrated to America. Yost stayed in Pennsylvania, Jacob moved to Virginia and Mathias moved to North Carolina.
In Jacob�s will and other documents, he signed his name as Shutz. In the Pennsylvania German church records, the minister wrote his name as Schuetz.
Jacob�s first wife was Mary Veronica Edrisch who was born about 1730 in Pennsylvania and died prior to 1788 in Virginia. Veronica is alive in 1784 since she is mentioned in her father�s will. They were married on July 31, 1759 in Whitemarsh, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania by Reverend John George Alsentz. Jacob and Veronica�s eldest six children were born in Pennsylvania and baptized at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church Cemetery, Whitepain Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Veronica was the daughter of John Edrisch and Dorothy. John and Dorothy are buried at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church Cemetery, Whitepain Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. When Jacob and Veronica moved to Virginia from Pennsylvania they undoubtedly traveled on the main road that lead from Lancaster, Pennsylvania through Hagerstown, Maryland and then down into Winchester and Shenandoah Valley. They settled just to the north of Staunton near Mt Sidney, Virginia. Jacob and Veronica had two more children in Virginia.
Jacob�s second wife was Elizabeth Butt. Jacob and Elizabeth were married on July 2, 1789 Augusta County, Virginia. Elizabeth died before 1796 in Virginia.
Jacob marries for the third time to Elizabeth Player, a widow, in 1796. Elizabeth survived Jacob and died in 1818 in Augusta County, Virginia.
Jacob bought 300 acres of land on the branches of Naked Creek in Augusta County, Virginia on September 16, 1777 and was a resident of Augusta County, Virginia by 1781 since he was allowed a Revolutionary claim for furnishing supplies to the Augusta County Militia Court of Claim Book page 50 claim allowed 4-20-1782. He had 27 acres surveyed on 3-26-1785. This land was on the southwest side of Naked Creek and adjoined Jacob�s land. Jacob had 200 acres of land surveyed on 2-4-1791. This land bordered land he already owned. Jacob eventually owed 1159 acres of land on the waters of Naked Creek, Augusta County, Virginia
Jacob is listed In the Augusta County tax list of 1782. Jacob and son John are tithables in 1783. In the 1787 Augusta County, Virginia personal property tax list, Jacob is listed with 1 male over 16 and under 21, 7 horses, mules, and mares, and 16 cattle. His son John is listed in this tax list, but Jacob makes payment for him. He is also listed in the 1800 Augusta County tax list with two men over 21, (Jacob & son Henry), 5 horses and 2 slaves over 16.
Jacob had his land surveyed in 1802 and divided between his 6 sons by his first wife. Jacob also owned land in Fayette County, Kentucky on Eagle Creek, which he left to all seven sons to sell or divide. This land was owned jointly with John Sheets and was 2,481 � acres. The land was surveyed on 12-1-1786. The survey is listed in The Kentucky Land Grants Volume 1, Part 1 and Chapter II Virginia Grants (1782-1792) The Counties of Kentucky, page 119.
Jacob�s will was written 7-13-1803 and proved on 7-24-1809. On 6-27-1806, Jacob disowned his youngest son, Jacob Jr. In the selling of Jacob�s estate (6-21-1809) are listed two adult slave and five children, net value totaling $1250.
Jacob had nine children, he had two sons named Jacob, therefore I am assuming that the eldest Jacob died early, as the only mention of him is his baptismal record. Jacob and Veronica had 8 children while Jacob and his second wife had one chld.

First Generation

1. John Sheets was born 5-7-1760 Pennsylvania and died in 1823 Augusta County, Virginia. He was baptized at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church Bluebell Pennsylvania. His sponsors were grandparents John and Dorothy Edrisch. John moved from the Pennsylvania colony to Augusta County, Virginia with his parents while he was a young man. He would have been a great help to his father on this move.

John is listed as a tithable in 1783 Augusta County, Virginia. John is also listed in the 1787 personal property tax list of Augusta County, Virginia. He is listed as the son of Jacob and Jacob is paying his tax. He is listed on the 1800 Augusta County, Virginia tax list with one male over 21 and 2 horses.
John bought land in Staunton, Augusta County, Virginia on 2-23-1802. John received 340 acres of land from his father, which included the house and all improvements. He bought land from his youngest brother, Jacob Sheets in 1817. John also jointly owned land in Kentucky with his father.
John gave money to the trustees of Salem Church. John was appointed Lieutenant in the 32nd Regiment, 7th Brigade and 3rd Division of the Augusta County, Virginia Militia on August 25, 1821.
I did not find a marriage record that would fit with John�s age, however in the settlement of his estate in 1823, it is clearly stated that the widow took her 1/3 of the estate. Frequently, John is listed with Susannah Ergelbright as his wife but in the resolution of John�s estate, John & Susannah Sheetz signed the estate settlement. In 1830, a Barbara Sheets appears in the census record plus Michael Sheets� death record list Barbara as being his mother�s name. Another John Sheets, who was listed as a carpenter, made his coffin.
John was listed as surety in the marriage bond for the following people, Henry, Peggy, and Catherine. The marriage bond of Henry states that John is the father of Henry. Michael�s death record listed John and Barbara as his parents.
  1. John Sheets born 1775-94 Augusta County, Virginia died 1842 Augusta County, Virginia
  2. Michael Sheets born 1794 Augusta County, Virginia died 8-1856 Augusta County, Virginia
  3. Catherine Sheets born 2-9-1795 Augusta County, Virginia died 7-3-1881 Bourbon County, Kentucky
  4. Henry Sheets born about 1796 Augusta County, Virginia
  5. Jacob Sheets born 1798 Augusta County, Virginia died by 1870 in Augusta County, Virginia
  6. Margaret Sheets born 1799 Augusta County, Virginia died 12-11-1877 Augusta County, Virginia
  7. Mary Sheets born about 1800 Augusta County, Virginia died by 1850 in Augusta County, Virginia.
  8. David Sheets born 1802 Augusta County, Virginia died after 1880 Augusta County, Virginia
2. Anna Margaret Sheets was born on 1-5-1762 Pennsylvania. She was baptized in 1762 at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church in Bluebell, Pennsylvania. Her sponsors were Peter Bock and his wife Mary Magdalene Schuetz. Margaret moved from the colony of Pennsylvania to Augusta County, Virginia with her parents when she was a young woman. She would have been of great assistance to her mother and probably remembered this trip for the rest of her life.
Margaret inherited 20 pounds cash in her father�s will. Her husband was Garret Daulton. The only record I find of Margaret�s marriage is in her father�s will.
Garret is listed in the Fairfax County, Virginia 1787 personal property tax list with one horse, mare or mule and no sons over 16. Garret had 140 acres of land surveyed in Augusta County, Virginia on 6-19-1790. This land came from land granted to Jacob Sheetz on 11-1-1783. Garret owed money to his father-in-law when Jacob died.
In Jacob Sheetz� will, a granddaughter, Elizabeth Miller was mentioned. I am making the assumption that she was Margaret�s daughter. Their children were:
  1. Samuel James Daulton
  2. Elizabeth Daulton
3. Jacob Sheets was born 6-14-1764 Pennsylvania and was baptized in 1764 at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church in Bluebell Pennsylvania. The only record of this Jacob is his baptismal record so I assume that he died young. I am making this assumption since his father, Jacob, mentioned each of his children in the order of their birth in his will and he did not mention this son. The other major consideration is that Jacob�s youngest son is also named Jacob.

4. John Philip Sheets was born 9-27-1767 in Pennsylvania and baptized 1767 at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church in Bluebell, Pennsylvania. His sponsors were Philip Schineberger and wife. Philip moved from the Pennsylvania colony to Augusta County, Virginia with his parents while he was a boy. He would have been old enough to help and this trip was probably the source of many stories told to his children and grandchildren. Philip died in 1853 in Augusta County, Virginia. When he died, Philip�s granddaughter, Elizabeth Landes Hulvey and her family were living with him.

His wife was Catherine Cupp. Catherine was born 1769 in Pennsylvania and died 4-1-1853 of debility in Augusta County, Virginia. Philip preceded her in death by a few months. Catherine was the daughter of Marcus Cupp and Margaret. Philip and Catherine were married on 5-26-1791 in Augusta County, Virginia.
Philip received 142 acres of land from his father. Philip is listed in the 1800 Augusta County, Virginia census with one male over 21 and 3 horses. Philip and Catherine were listed in the census records of Augusta County, Virginia for the years of 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, and 1850. Philip and Catherine�s children

             40. Sarah Catharine Sheets born 1813 Augusta County, Virginia died 8-23-1882 Augusta County, Virginia
5. Daniel Sheets was born 3-30-1770 in Pennsylvania. He was baptized on 5-6-1770 at Boehms Reformed Church in Bluebell, Pennsylvania. His sponsors were Peter Bock and Mary Magdalena Schuetz Bock. Daniel moved from the Pennsylvania colony to Augusta County, Virginia with his parents while he was a young boy. Daniel died suddenly in 1816 Augusta County, Virginia.
Daniel married Elizabeth Whitemore on 3-27-1790 Augusta County, Virginia by William Wilson. Elizabeth was born 3-10-1769 and died 12-23-1849 Augusta County, Virginia. After Daniel�s death, Elizabeth married Adam Wise on 5-1827 by John Brown, D.D. Elizabeth is buried at Old Salem Lutheran Church Cemetery Augusta County, Virginia. Her tombstone lists the names of both of her husbands. I have been unable to find the grave of Daniel.
Daniel received 193 acres of land from his father. Daniel and Elizabeth were listed 1800 Augusta County, VA tax list with 1 male over 21 and 2 horses. They were listed 1810 Augusta County, Virginia and Elizabeth is listed 1820 Augusta County, Virginia. Their children

6. George Peter Sheets was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on January 17, 1774. Peter was baptized on March 20, 1774 at Boehm�s Evangelical Reformed Church in Bluebell, Pennsylvania. His sponsors were Peter Bock and wife (Mary Magdalena Schuetz Bock). Peter moved from the Pennsylvania colony to Augusta County, Virginia with his parents while he was a young boy.
Peter married Catherine Eakle. Catherine was born on August 28, 1774 in Washington County, Maryland. Reverend Paul Henkel married them on March 3, 1796 in Augusta County, Virginia. Catherine was the daughter of Christian Eakle (Ekel) who died in 1802 in Washington County, Maryland. In their marriage record, Christian is listed as being German.
In 1809, Peter received 142 acres of land from his father and farmed in Augusta County, Virginia for the rest of his life. In 1842, Peter sold 157 � acres of land to his son Peter Jr. Peter and Catherine spent their entire lives living in Augusta County, Virginia where raised six children.
Peter was listed in the following census and tax records. He is listed in the 1800 tax list Augusta County, Virginia with one male over 21 and 2 horses. Peter and Mary were listed in the census records of 1810, 1820, 1830, and 1840 living in Augusta County, Virginia. In the 1850 census records of Augusta County, Virginia, Peter is living with his son Peter and is listed as George P. Sheets. In 1870 son Peter Jr claims that mother was born in Maryland and father born in Pennsylvania.
Peter died on July 7, 1850 in Augusta County, Virginia and Catherine died prior to 1850 in Virginia. I do not know where Peter or Catherine are buried.
Peter and Catherine had the following children �

  6. Anna Catherine Sheets born 1817 Augusta County, Virginia died 7-26-1876 Augusta County, Virginia
7. Andrew Sheetz was born about 1780-1784 probably in Virginia. Andrew was probably baptized but I have not found the record. His wife was Catharine Sermabough who was born between 1780 and 1784. Andrew and Catharine were married on 9-23-1799 in Augusta County, Virginia. The sureties were Jacob Sheetz and her father, John Sensibough (Sermabough), brother Peter Sermabough, brother John Sensibough, and sister Elizabeth Lightner.
In 1809, Andrew received 193 acres of land from his father. He sold part of this land to his brother Jacob Sheets in 1810 for $400.00. Andrew and Catherine both signed this deed. On 7-9-1832, Andrew sold 53 acres of land to his brother Jacob Sheets. Andrew signed this deed but Catherine did not sign. I lost contact with Andrew after the 1830 census.
From the census records, Andrew and Catherine had many children. I used the census records for their ages. Andrew and Catherine were listed in the 1800 tax list of Augusta County, Virginia with 1 male over 21 and 2 horses. Andrew and Catherine were listed in the census records of 1810, 1820, and 1830 living in Augusta County, Virginia.
