The Sheldon Family Association has chosen Oberlin OH as the site for the 74th Annual Meeting and Reunion of our membership and others interested in Sheldon history. In recognition of the effort by H O Sheldon of Oberlin College to collect Sheldon Family histories, we have enlisted the help of Brian Wilbert and Deborah Mohler as the hosts for this important event. The Association was incorporated in 1939 by Sheldon descendants of the 5 colonial Sheldon men of New England: Isaac of Windsor CT and Northampton MA, John of Providence and John of Kingston RI, Godfrey of Saco Maine and Richard
Sheldon. Our Reunion Chairperson is Wendy Sheldon Black of Murphys CA.
