Notes Studio portrait of an unidentified family, consisting of a father and mother with three sons and a daughter. The image is inscribed on the back, "Taken Tuesday, July 9, 1876". An exhaustive genealogy of the Ziebell and Sheets family shows no known family group consisting of the same number of children and ages in 1876. This is possibly the great-grand parents of May Sheets Ziebell, who's grandfather was Charles Loren Sheets. He would have been fifteen years old in 1876. Nothing could be found on his life or family prior to his coming from Ohio to Oshkosh in 1884.
