Do not know if I ever responded to your post many years ago.

I believe that Elenor Segers, orphan of William Segers, married JOHN SHIRLEY, son of Moses Shirley. Moses Shirley died in 1826 in Darlington County, SC.

Moses Shirley also had a son Moses Shirley, Jr, who married a daughter of George Mozingo.

I beleive that John Shirley married Elenor - Elly - Segers who was living with George Mozingo as George Mozingo was serving as her guardian.

In 1826/27 John Shirley and his wife ELLY sold there property and apparently moved to Dallas County, AL

George Mozingo and most of the other children of Moses Shirley can be found in the 1830 Dallas County, AL census. John Shirley apparently died before 1840 and we find a Helen Shirly in the 1840 Washington County census. I think named mispelled because in the 1845 Mississippi state census she is listed as ELLEY SHIRLEY.

I have been researching this line for almost 30 years and feel pretty confident that this is the same person, unless someone can prove otherwise.
