What a surprise to see Mayhorns and Shipleys!Margaret Shipley and Albert Johnson Mayhorn were my grandparents.I am the daughter of their eldest child, Denzell Cedric Mayhorn.He had 3 younger sisters:Kathleen, Freeda and Wanda.
As a very young child, Margaret had an accident and gradually lost her sight through her childhood.She attended a boarding school for the blind where she learned Braille and played the organ.She and Albert were "old" (for their time) when they married and I believe she had one child who was stillborn or died soon after birth, before having my father.Albert died while my father was serving in the south pacific during WWII.Margaret died in 1967 or 68.(I apologize.In my excitement I'm writing this from memory without looking up the dates and details.)Denzell and Wanda are also deceased.
The 4 Mayhorn offspring had a total of 9 children.
The only other Shipley I knew was Margaret's sister Bertha who lived in Uniontown PA.She was married to Elmer (His last name escapes me at the moment).I believe the Shipley family had been split up at some point (?) and were in touch in later years.I remember hearing about twins but don't know the details.
