Tuscarawas Co. OH-Clouse & Sheckles

After checking microfilm of the original Tuscarawas Co. OH marriages, I found another sister of Sarah Jane Sheckles. Her name was Massalina, b. abt 1822 in WV, & she married a minister, Demas Clouse. They moved around a lot, lost all of their first 6 children within about 2 weeks due to an epidemic. She had several more, but outlived all but 2 sons. She died in 1916 & is buried in Butler Co. Iowa. Most important is the fact that her husband, Demas wrote an autobiography & said the name of Massalina's parents were Lewis & Amy Sheckles. More details (especially about him) are in Ancestry.com Family Trees.
