Thanks John! You've been very helpful. I've tried looking in the LDS resources, but they've been overwhelming. Hopefully the numbers you've given will help considerably in narrowing it all down. I'm still learning the fine details of the computer program that I'm using, so I can't easily put up all of the people that I have yet, but here's my basic line of descent: Thomas Shippy's son, Charles Stuart and Rebecca Platt were my ggg grandparents. Their daughter Frances Elizabeth (Libbie) married James Russell Sutton (the J.R. that I meant to reference earlier as Charles' son-in-law, not son), and their oldest daughter, Anna Rebecca Sutton, married Francis Vernon Presler. Their son Francis Presler, Jr. was my grandfather, and Becky Presler Troyer is my mother. I understand that interest doesn't run as deep when it's not your direct line, so just let me know if there's anything more specific about any of these generations that you'd like to know. My family's had a long tradition in the RLDS church and it's good to know, now, when that all started. Thanks again!
