      Bill Sheffield is a fifth great-grandson of John Sheffield Sr. [d. 1796, Moore County, NC], one of the most widely held ancestors in upper Moore County. Bill descends from John Sheffield Sr. through son John Sheffield Jr. [1750/1760-1837] > John Sheffield III [1770/1775- 1845] > Stephen Sheffield > Benjamin Franklin Sheffield > William Wesley Sheffield [Bills' grandfather]. Bill tested 37 markers and the results help confirm a long held belief that the Moore County Sheffields were related to the Sheffields of Duplin County, NC. Bill's Y-DNA is a close match to a number of Sheffield men who descend from the Duplin County family confirming that John Sr. of Moore County and the John Sheffield located in Duplin during the same timeframe shared a common male ancestor.
