Hi: My maternal grandmothers maiden name was Elva Shirley she was from Chelsea Al. and is buried there in the Pleasant valley Cemetery.
Elva married William John (W.J.) McMeekin of Birmingham they ultimately moved to Chicago via So. Illinois. Elva passed away I believe in 1962 or 1963 there are still some shirleys residing in Chelsea and they are my cousins. There are also some McMeekins living in Birmingham whom I visited last year. I was unable to visit the Shirleys as they were not home. The home occupied by them I have a picture of with me sitting on the side porch with a dog taken I believe around 1938 or 1939. Elvas fathers name was Bunyon C. Shirley. I will answer all who respond I am just getting started in research and am eager to learn.
