Deat John ---Thank you so very much for your prompt reply, and explaining to me how you are related to the family. According to my calculations---you and my husband Weldon are SECOND cousins once removed!! His connection is Donald Edward Shelp, John S.Shelp, Thomas W.Shelp, John Shelp (John & Abigail). I noticed that someone had emailed you some info (LSFossum@aol) that I copied and placed in italics below.

2. THOMAS SHELP was married about 1840 to his first wife, Jane Hill, by whom he had one child (I know nothing more about this marriage or the child). He was married about 1850 to CAROLINE R. HULCE born November 1819 in Deposit, NY. Caroline was previously married 1 September 1842 to Arata(?) Shear who died about 1847. They probably resided in Susquehanna County, PA but moved sometime after 1856 to Omro, WI. They had five children:Ella, Martha, MARY B. SHELP (MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER),Thomas Harvey and John S. I have several generations down to myself, if you are interested.
There are some errors in that: Jane Hill is his third wife! He married her after Caroline Hulce Shelp died around 1882-1889 (Caroline died 2/15/1882) and she was called 'Grandma Julia'. It was Jane Hill Shelp that helped John S. and Ocena Winchester Shelp, with the births of Inez, Ethel and Roy. Thomas W. Shelp is believed to have had a marriage prior to his one with Caroline Hulce, however. We do not have her name only letters stating that "they had two children, Henry and Josephine who lived with their mother in the south."
Caroline Hulce was also married prior to her marriage with Thomas, as stated above to Arata Shear Sept.1, 1842-1847. No children that we know of.
If you have actual birth dates for John and Abigail's children, I would love to have them. All I have for sure on them is Thomas, William and John. The rest are estimates. I'd also be interested to learn what kind of Dr. William was, and where he lived. (By the way---What type of Dr are you ? Are you retired? I don't have a birth date for you.) My husband Weldon is a retired Nephrologist---so we've had three wonderful years without 'call'!! FYI We live at 7111 Applewood Dr., Madison, Wisconsin 53719 Phone 608-829-1996. I would be happy to send you any information that you would like. Please don't hesitate to ask. I would like to get the information you have on the Wallbridges, if you wouldn't mind sending it to me.
Guess that is enough for now. Hope to hear from you again. Carolyn Shelp.
