Sheffey(1977)
24 April 2006 | by lilpossum_01See all my reviews

This is a truly wonderful movie. It really tells me how my great,great,great grandfather was and how he helped people. But I only wished that it had a little more to do with his first wife. There is a lot of descendants from his first wife out here and we just wished it had some of our heritage in it also. But besides that it was a very good movie. He was a spectacular man. I just wished there were still good people out there in the world today. He was a very honorable man in my part of the woods, and I am very proud to be kin to him. I also went to a school that is named after him, if that doesn't tell you he was a good man I don't know what will.
