: I am at a deadend although I believe Jame's father to have been John Shirley born about 1707. I would like to be able to trace back further but can't get the connection.

I found the children of James Shirley and Judith Garriott listed at the Filson Club in Louisville, KY. Here is the info I found there:

James, b. 1735 in England, lived in Culpeper, VA, a road surveyor, married Judith Garriott ca 1758 in VA. She was born in 1743 (father Moses Garriott b. ca 1710--other sources say Moses' father was Jonathon Garriott, b. ca 1720, d. ca 1781 in Culpeper, VA, but these dates don't jive.)

Children of James and Judith were given as:
Mary Polly Shirley
James, b. 1756 in Cupeper, VA
John, b. 1757
Absolom, b. 1761, d. 1816
Delilah (Delia)
Bethsheba (Barsheba)
Zachariah, b. ca 1770, d. 1826 in Madison Co., VA
Thomas, b. ca 1770, d. 1845 in Madison Co., VA
William, b. 1772, d. Oldham Co., KY
Joshua, b. 1774, married in Nelson County, KY

I have no further info on this family, but am working on a theory that William or possibly Absolom may have been the father of Isaac Shirley, b. 1785-7 in Kentucky, moved to Shelby Co., IN, then Grundy Co., MO, then perhaps back to Tipton Co. IN where he died in 1859. I have a lot of info on the descendants of Isaac Shirley (see older message on this board) but I have nothing but theories on his parentage. Any info on the descendants of the William or Absolom Shirley mentioned above would be appreciated. --Louann
