This is my first venture on the internet in my ongoing search for ancestors in Missouri. My father, George Ernest Shirley, died in April 2002 at 103 years of age in Benton County, MO. I didn't find him in time as he and my mother were divorced when I was about 3, but I've learned that my paternal grandparents were James E. Shirley and Lepha-May Beason. I have found Lepha's ancestors through Jesse but can't find parents for James Shirley. A census lists him as being born in Ohio, but other records say MO. Children are George E., Blanche, Mabel, Jesse O., Joseph (Elmer). George was born in Sedalia? but can't find any records on birth, marriage, etc. for anyone so can't trace my Shirley line back any further. I have no photos of any of my father's family either. Any help from Shirleys in this MO branch would be very much appreciated.
