I'm looking for any info on a family from Letart about 60-70 years ago. They were Shields. The wife died. There were children and the dad couldn't care for them so they were adopted out. Any info would be helpful:) thanks

First names are not known. Actually, I just was informed Shields may not be the name. My grand mother was adopted after her mother died. Shields is who adopted her, but they were related to her somehow. I don't have that much info because I was adopted myself and I only know this small bit of info. I was told that my grandmother (mary jane) never met her mother, so her mother may have died giving birth. I wish I knew more. I hope someone knows something. Thanks.

my grandmother was a shields and her father jewel and other family members lived around in this area but not sure if any of them had adopted or not. Hope this will help. Go to google and search jewel shields mason county wv. From there you can find all kinds of shields info and census dating way back that someone has searched before. Hope this helps and I will ask my mother if she knows anything about this.
