In follow-up to my previous follow-up, I don't believe the Benjamin Shipley who married Margaret Miller is the son of
James Shipley son of Benjamin Shipley and Catherine Welles. The ages don't line up. Benjamin who married Margaret Miller was born 12 Mar 1800 in Washington County, TN. Benjamin married to Catherine Wells would have been 14 or 15 at that time. To be honest, I haven't found hard evidence that Benjamin and Catherine had a son named James. They did have a Benjamin J., born 26 Jun 1822, who was the father of Jacob Mauk Shipley (my wife's gf). Benjamin J. may have been Benjamin James but I don't know that for sure.
