Thanks George. I am getting some bits and pieces from my Dad. He remembers that his Dad, George W. Shirley, had an Aunt Mary Shirley Sanderson from Wayne Co., MS (b. 1840, MS) and thinks she came to visit them on the MS coast when she was in her 90s. He says his father was very fond of his Aunt Mary. If I am reading correctly she lived to over 100 years old. Also, George W. Shirley had a brother listed on the Association website as "Fun" Shirley (b. 1871, MS) and actually his name was Fern, according to my Dad.
