I need help.I'm looking for information on John H. Shipley my g.grandfather.I have some info.
He was born 5/28/1854 in Tennessee and died 4/3/1938 in Scurry, Texas.He married Nancy "Nanny" Melton they had children Rosa, Idella, John Henry, George, Lela Ophelia, Thomas, Bessie, James and Pearl.I can only find him beginning in the 1880 census, then 1900, 1910.All three census show his DOB to be 1854 in Tennessee.His death certificate doesn't give his parents names.
I don't know what part of TN he's from and cannot continue this line until I can find further information.I don't know his parents or siblings names.I need some help.
Does any of this information sound familiar to anyone??
