Family migration patterns: Sheffey family distribution 1840, 1880 & 1920

The previous three posts covered the migration of Sheffeys from Virginia to other states. The pictures below depict the same process. This is for all of you who prefer pictures to words 🙂

The States where there are Sheffeys are colour coded by density. That’s a fancy way of saying the more Sheffey families there are in a State, the darker the colour.

So here’s how it works:

Any states in Green: There are no Sheffey families recorded.

Dark Red = a lot of Sheffey families

Orange: = quite a few Sheffey families – but not as many as the dark red states

Yellow = only a handful of Sheffey families
