Thank you so much for responding to my message, Marilyn. Your information is very helpful. I have only The Shipleys of Maryland books dated 1937 and 1968. I do have the original birth, death and marriage records of the Nathan Shipley,Jr. family. David Lemmon and Sarah Fisher are mentioned-so I'm sure that we are discussing the same family. I want to add or correct information regarding some dates.
Nathan Shipley's birth and marriage dates are correct. His wife, Mary Jane, was born 3/29/1839 and died 10/3/1913. Their children:Mary Maria(11/19/1861-4/11/1939), Rose (1/28/1864-12/2/1942),Nettie Irene(12/23/1868-12/12/1911)and Susie Agustus(1/5/1877-3/16/1882). I am descended from Rose.
The ages of David and Mary W. Lemmon are a puzzle. They seem more likely to me in the 1850 and 1880 records since the age progression makes more sense.Does anyone have more info regarding the birthdates or any info about the Lemmon/Warfield family?
