SURNAME: FAST, POLAN (POLING), SHEETS
E_MAIL: imstanding@earthlink.net
DATE: 05/15/07
QUERY: I am looking for information on Catherine Sheets who married Philip Sheets, and their children as well as their parents, siblings, previous marriages, etc. I would like to know if Catherine's maiden name is Poling or Polan, if she had a sister Elizabeth Poling, if her daughter Mary Jane was from a previous marriage to a Fast. Her daughter Mary Jane was 2 years old when her husband Philip was 19, so I am thinking Mary Jane did come from a previous marriage as Catherine was 24 when Philip was 19. I don't know when they were married. If this is the Catherine Sheets I am looking for, she later married Edward Kelly in Mercer County, Ohio and lived in Center Twp in town of Neptune. Edward was married to Elizabeth Poling before he married Catherine Sheets. We were told they were sisters. I have information on Elizabeth and Catherine after their marriages to Edward if you need it, but I need what came before they married Edward, and where Mary Jane Fast (Edward's step daughter) came from. Thanks
