I am trying to locate all of the the descendants of John Shirley
(b. SC 1818-d. Pickens County, AL 1883) and his two wives. His
first wife was Lydia Williams (children Juliet died as a teenager,
Julius died in the Civil War, Columbus married Ophelia Victoria
Howell, Thomas S. married Roanne Elmore, George married Sydney
Jones, Mary Ann married Joel Elmore, Sarah Ermery "Sallie"
married Warren Howell, Savannah "Babe" married Joseph
Simpson Lancaster, Margarett married Will Hall. His second wife
was Nancy Ann Corr (children Ada Loucressa married John Oscar
Brown, Emily Ella married Elisha Thomas Hannah, John Clark married
Dovie McAteer, Henrietta married Charlie W. Holman, Viola Jane
married Henry Fulgham, Willie Mae presumably died young, and
Arkie married Lorenzo Dow Fair called "Bud".
I would like to make contact

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.
