At least two Ludwig SHEETZ' descendants moved to Ohio. The line of
descent is Ludwig -> Johan George -> David SHEETS (& wife Anna Maria) ->
sons John and George (from Adams Co., PA). John moved to Springfield,
Ohio in 1848 and by 1857 was in Hamilton Co., Ohio. George moved to
Cincinnati, Ohio by 1847.
