    Children:

Generation: 3

  1. 3.  Mary Sheldon Descendancy chart to this point (2.Sarah2, 1.Daniel1) was born about 1767; died on 25 Feb 1853 in Steubenville, Jefferson, Ohio.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 19 Feb 1812

    Notes:

    Still in Hartford, she is identified as her late husband's executor in the Hartford Courant of 4 Mar 1812, page 4.

    Her death notice in the Hartford, Connecticut Christian Secretary for 18 Mar 1853, indexed in the Hale Collection (citation details below), says that she died 25 Feb 1853 in Steubenville, Ohio and calls her "Revolutionary War Widow of Roderick of Hartford." Her death in Steubenville was also mentioned in the Hartford Times on 19 Mar 1853.

    There is a Find a Grave entry for a Mary Sheldon with no dates at all, only the information that she was buried at Union Cemetery in Steubenville. (This is not the entry for her daughter Mary Sheldon McDowell.) Perhaps it refers to this Mary Sheldon, who did die in Steubenville. But this Mary died in 1853, and the cemetery's web site says it was founded in 1854.

    Family/Spouse: Roderick Sheldon. Roderick (son of Daniel Sheldon and Lucretia Gross) was born in 1755; died on 8 Jan 1812 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut; was buried in Old South Burying Ground, Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: of Steubenville, Jefferson, Ohio

    Notes:

    The Find a Grave record for Mary Sheldon, which contains no dates and says only where she was buried, has to refer to this one and not to her mother, because the wife of Roderick Sheldon died in Steubenville in 1853 and Union Cemetery was founded in 1854.

    Mary married Alexander Johnston McDowell on 19 Jul 1814 in Jefferson County, Ohio. Alexander (son of Dr. John McDowell and Martha Johnston) was born in 1788 in New London Crossroads, Chester, Pennsylvania; died on 6 Dec 1871 in Steubenville, Jefferson, Ohio; was buried in Union Cemetery, Steubenville, Jefferson, Ohio.
