Overview
Excerpt from The Shields Family Particularly the Oldest and Most Numerous Branch of the Family in America: An Account of the Ancestors and Descendants of the Ten Brothers of Sevier County, Tennessee of Sevier County
To the end that those of whose descendants we are and whose names many of us bear may not be forgotten but may find a proper place in the history and memory of our American race, I have, undertaken to collect such facts as are obtainable regarding the forefathers of our own Shields family. There has not, to my knowledge, been any other attempt made to set down such a comprehensive record; this one is far from complete. Entire branches, representing many hundreds of individuals, have been lost to us. Frequently only a name, sometimes a date or two, often merely a line, sets forth ail we know of the activities of a lifetime of seventy busy years.
This data has been gathered with painstaking effort from sources innumerable: From family Bibles, land, law and church records, official documents, private letters, memory, tradition, and what not. Most of it is, I trust, fairly accurate; $f-.some of it may be incorrect; none of it is as complete as ft should be. Thus far it has been a stupendous task; its completion will be tedious and full of discouragements and disappointments. A few years ago it would have been easier; a few years hence much of it -would have been forever lost.
This pamphlet is not for sale; it is only a beginning. I have made a few copies, with much labor, hoping that others into whose hands they may fall will add such corrections and new material as ought to appear if the book shall ever be published. I wish I were able to publish it properly and handsomely; many would prize a fitting memorial to our own who have gone before; it would be even more highly appreciated by generations yet unborp. Someday someone will do this. Therefore, I am sure that all who can will contribute to its correction and completion as willingly as I have tried to do my part, Mich that we may do now, even poorly, if left for a few years can never be done at all.
