Re: Shirley Family in Southern Illinois
Please excuse the belated reply but I've been ill for awhile and unable to get online for a period of time. Just stopped my 'home IVs' today and waiting patiently until Monday to get my chest catheter removed after two months of daily around the clock IVs.
You mentioned that MOSES SHIRLEY & NANCY DALE were your great-great-grandparents. My data shows MOSES b. abt 1774 NC d. 11-21-1866 and NANCY b. abt 1774 VA d. 11-28-1862.
Is this the same dates you have?
One of their siblings was NIMROD SHIRLEY b. abt 1797 SC m. ELIZABETH DALE b. abt 1800. This was my great-great-great-grandparents.
They had several children and RUSSELL SHIRLEY b. 1-3-1822 Hamilton Co, IL was my great-great-grandfather. His daughter, SARAH WINIFRED SHIRLEY b. 5-10-1849 Hamilton Co, IL was my great-grandmother.
Have you found several MOSES SHIRLEYs as I have during your research?
Are we bonding together with the same MOSES SHIRLEY?
Let me know and I'll share with you what data I have found. Contact me via my home email if you would like.
