True grave of my great Uncle William Paschal O'Shields born 1824-1909.
Mr. William Paschal O'Shields is buried in Cedar Shoalds Baptist Church Cemetery. Near Enore and has been buried there since 1909. Sometime we want to prove a point that we will hatch up a place where a person we want to be where a person is buried. One researcher even used the marker of Old Lebanon Baptist Cemetery. To try to say that William Paschal O'Shields was buried in the Old Lebanon Baptist Church Cemetery this just is not true. Even showed a picture of a marker that had no name to try to prove this to be his marker. There is no proof that any O'Shields is buried in this Cemetery. This Cemetery is all grown up trees have fallen on markers and broke them to where they can't be read. This researcher even has put his birthdate as 1800 or 1805 which this is not true. Most of the researchers out there know that i have done my research and i have give true facts. Even the other researcher used a letter that was wrote by Sarah Jane O'Shields a daughter of William Paschal O'Shields and Elizabeth Heaton. Year 1929 is when the letter was wrote. In the letter Sarah Jane O'Shields states that she don't know when her daddy died nor where he died but she goes on to say thathe went to check on his sons wife. Sounds strange to me don't give name of son. Looks like that he must have been back in Spartanburg at some point which he must have died in Spartanburg 1909 and buried next to his first wife Caroline Hammond she was buried 1908 Cedar Shoalds where both are buried. Elizabeth Heaton was buried in North Carolina.
