Nancy O'Shields

Journal by charlesoshields

Nancy O'Shields born in Spartanburg SC. August 17' 1804. Nancy O'Shields worked in a Doctors Office in Spartanburg SC. Dr. John Smith He changed his name to Dr. John Winn-Smith. Nancy with my study in my research looks like that Nancy O'Shields had 4 sons a one daughter. Which i will name these children. William Paschal O'Shields born July 4th. 1824' Samuel Drayton O'Shields born 1825' Wiley Drayton O'Shields born 1832' Mary Ann [Polly] O'Shields born Jan' 15' 1833' Isaac Scott O'Shields born 1834 or 1835. This is all the children of Nancy O'Shields. This family lived on a large plantation called the O'Shields Plantation 272 acres of farmland. Some researchers try to say that there is no proof that Nancy O'Shields was ever born. I know that most of those that do research know better than that. I can't say that i agree with her lifestyle because i did not. Nancy O'Shields never married or if she did i can't find any record of Nancy O'Shields ever getting married. But she was a person who in latter years was a christian. So we need to look at the things that Nancy did helping others. Nancy O'Shields was a Mid-Wife and Nancy would get her buggy and would be on her way to help someone in need. Lets look a little more at Nancy O'Shields was a person who was not scared of work. On this Plantation there was smoke houses for hangig their meats. Yes times were rough but as her children grew it was a lot better. Each one of these children had their chores to do. There was lots of love in this family. Nancy had some slaves to help on the Plantation. I want to take time to say i thank God for My great-great grandmother praise God for Nancy O'Shields.
