I am the great-great-great granddaughter of Thomas Shirley buried in the Shirley cemetary in SnowHill, TN. I am curious if anyone can give me a description of the Shirley Plantation (in the Hamiliton Co. Tn area) that burned down not to long after the Civil War. This was the property that was reclaimed after a supreme court battle (I have the original documents) from a northerner Mr. Monger. I have recently acquired documents and some photos from this era. I have a strong desire to know what this Plantation looked like. My father was William L. Shirley, his father was James Brown Shirley, his father Thomas Jr. Thanks for any help!
