Re: Rosanna Canote Shelley (1700s)
I have a book "Genealogy of Valentine Shirley and Related Families" by Henry Shirley Rothrock, 1983.In the section on Christian Shirley he states:
"Christian b. 12 Feb 1773, MD, d. 11 Aug 1858 IN, m 28 Nov 1796 Roasanna Canote, b. 27 Jul 1776, MD, d. 9 Jan 1861, IN.Five children are known - John, eldest; Henry; Denton; Elizabeth (Holmes); Anderson.Census returns sugges there may have been several other children who died young."
"Rosanna Canote was a daughter of John Canote, Sr., and wife Rosanna.They came from Faryland to Augusta Co., VA where they bought land 23 Aug 1791.This they sold, 261 acres to Michael Shirey in 1802.In 1810 the John Canotes, Sr. and Jr., are in Madison Co., KY.They are not in later KY or IN censuses."
