Re: Shirley Family in Southern Illinois
Thanks for the response and I'm hoping we can and do make a family connection.
But....I'm starting to have some doubt that my great-great-grandfather, RUSSELL SHIRLEY, was a son of NIMROD SHIRLEY and ELIZABETH DALE. I'm not getting or finding any real strong proof to g-g-grandpa's parentage. My researching is beginning to lag some with summer coming on and all of the outside work that needs to be done.
I'm up right now because of my life long aches and pains due to my osteoarthritis.
But I wanted to answer you response and I hope we can make a connection with the SHIRLEY family.
Have you by chance ever checked in with Betty Shirley of CA at her "Shirley Web Site"?
