sorry to have you type all that. i am actually trying to find info on charles william schirlls. in the 1900 census i found a william sirrells living with rolf flippin family right near where his future wife nannie bledsoe lived with her parents. in 1904 they had their first child. i am just trying to make a connection. thanks for the info. let me know if you might have any clues for me to follow up on.
