: My earliest known Shirley ancestor is Eli Shirley who married an Odum. I have no info on this Shirley, except that he had a son John Shirley born May 5, 1818 in South Carolina. John died December 17, 1883 in Alabama. John was married to Lydia Williams first. He then married Nancy Ann Corr. Any info on John's father, Eli, would be greatly appreciated.
There was an Eli (Elijah) Shirley living in Fairfield County, SC in 1800. Check the census for that county and year, page 233. He was fairly young with four daughters and no sons. He also appears in the 1810 census for Fairfield County. By this time, he has one son. Check page 198 of the census.
