I'm still looking for descendants of John Edward Shiers, b. 1866 in Liverpool England and went to Toronto, Canada after 1881. His father was Edward Adam Shiers b. abt. 1848 in Manchester, England. Edward's wife - Mary Ellen Hayes, b. 1849 in Liverpool. Ada seems to be a name used a lot in the family. I found them in the 1881 Census in the Municipal Ward of Everton in Liverpool. In that same ward was a Sarah A. Shiers (widow) age 51 and b. in Manchester. Living with her was her daughter, Ada M age 18. Could this Sarah be related to Edward Adam Shiers? Does anyone know anything about the Shier/Shiers of the Manchester area of the County of Lancashire?
