: I am researching the family of my great Grandmother Bertie Evelyn SHIRLEY. Her father was John Franklin SHIRLEY b. 10 Dec. 1842 Abbeville District S.C. he married Martha Ann Biles somewhere in MS. 19 Sept.1865. d. 6 March 1904 Authon, Parker County Texas. Any help would be appreciated.
I just found the Shirley website! I have a book "John Shirley and Descendants of Virginia and South Carolina" by Harry Tracy King and YOUR NAME is in it. Your mother Joyce Evelym Bentley b1928 mWillie Cornelius Burrell, your grandfather Hubert Chandler Bentley b1896 mLeota Lorene Connell, your g-grandmother Bertie Evelyn Shirley b1875 mWilliam Edward Bentley, Bertie's parents John Franklin Shirley b1842 and Martha Ann Biles. Does this sound right? Go to homepage and click on Shirleys in America, then descendants & genealogy: 2nd name is John Shirley and Elizabeth Barmore, 1st child John Shirley Jr. & Elizabeth, 5th child Jonathan T. & Eleanor Sharp, 2nd child Robert Clements Shirley & Caroline Elizabeth Posey, 1st child is John Franklin Shirley & Martha Ann "Boyles" (misspelled). Let me know if this helps you. I guess we are distantly related.
