I have Jane "Jinny" Wasson who md Benjamin Shipley in 1806 Rockbridge Co VA. I am working on putting their family together and have a couple possible's that I'm trying to prove with some type of documentation.

1) Mary/Polly Shipley b ca 1809 Rockbridge Co VA d 1879 Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co IN. Married Andrew Ornbaum 1826 Rockbridge Co VA - Andrew & Mary Shipley had (9) children and their son John Shipley Ornbaum moved to CA and a brother Benjamin lived in CA for several years before returning to Montgomery Co IN.

2)Benjamina Shipley b ca 1814 Rockbridge Co VA d 1859 Mahaska Co IA md James Ornbaum 1830 Rockbridge Co VA

There is a John Shipley in the 1840 census Montgomery Co IN
born 1810 - 1820

James and Andrew Ornbaum are sons of Lewis Ornbaum. Lewis Ornbaum also had a daughter Elizabeth "Betsy" who married Frederick Allbright and they lived in Rockbridge Co VA.
Two of their daughters Sarah & Elizabeth Allbright married sons of David Wasson. James Wasson married Elizabeth Allbright and John Wasson married Sarah Allbright. David Wasson is the brother of Jane/Jinny Wasson who md Benjamin Shipley. John & James Wasson along with their Allbright wives also moved to Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co IN.

I know this is a long, confusing email but I hope you see what I am trying to prove.
