My Shiplett's start with three siblings traveling from Va. to Ohio in 1829. 
Rowland, James and Keziah, traveled from Loudoun Co. Va. to Muskingum Co. Ohio, according to all the family stories.

My David Rowland Shiplett married an Elizabeth Franklin on
June 27th 1830 in Muskingum County Ohio.

Keziah Shiplett married James Dollings 15 Aug. 1829 in Muskingum County Ohio

James Shiplett - no record was ever found for him marrying or otherwise.

**Deed that a Shiflet Family Genealogist found in Va.
that a Rowland Shiflet signed as a witness.

**Deed that a Rowland Shiflet and a
William Dollings signed as witnesses in Va.

Marriage records I found in Muskingum County I do not know
who these girls are, but I do believe they could be related.

I am a Christian who believes in Jesus Christ being the only way to heaven and to get there you have to give your life to God and ask Jesus into your heart and ask Gods forgiveness for all the things you have done wrong in your life. Please give your life to God and enjoy eternity in Heaven.

I now attend a Methodist Church and they do something new now that is so cool called Celebrate Jesus that is like your own neighborhood mission work they do it all over the state of Florida. Missionaries from all over travel to other Methodist churches in Fla. and they help you walk the neighborhoods in your town. We spread neighborhood block party invitations, Give out water, give away free food, we gave out bus tokens and many other things for a week and take in prayer requests and at the end of the week we have a huge block party. This is so cool.

Celebrate Jesus
Something my Church does.
