    Shott in the right shoulder at Dettingen. Born at Shelsby in Worcestershire.
    [?Shelsley Walsh aka Little Shelsley or Shelsley-Beauchamp aka Great Shelsley?]
    It’s hard to tell if the last two letters of the first word are tt or ll. If it’s the latter then it reads Shell in the right shoulder [presumably a musket shell?]
