My great-grandmother had a brother named Henry A. Shorey. He was born in Palermo. Don't have the info in front of me, but if you're interested, I can get it for you. Her name was Clarissa Shorey - her parents were Clarissa J. Varney and Appleton W. Shorey who died in Salisbury, NC in a confederate prison. The mother then lived with Appleton's brother Elijah. The grave stone says they were married, but I haven't found any record of that; although they did have one daughter together. Clarissa Shorey went by the name of Carrie and she married a George W. Norton.
