Shirkey Family Genealogy Forum
Mike, thanks much for the reply. My connection to the Shirkey's is questionable but I was trying to find information on my Sinclair line in Scotland. I will try to explain the possible connection in hopes you might be able to help. What I believe is that Edward Shirkey and Margarte Barr had a daughter born 1833 in Kilwinning who married a Matthew Sinclair, born 1831 in Renfrewshire. This couple moved to the U.S., joined the Mormon church, and eventually ended up in Salt Lake, UT. This Matthew Sinclair maybe the brother of my Gt.Gt.Gt. Grandfather James Sinclair, born 1827, who came to America from Scotland about 1850. So far I have not been able to make a connection to my Scottish ancestors and have little information on my James Sinclair so am turing over every rocks that seems possible. Most of my information on the Shirkey's and Elizabeth's marriage to Matthew Sinclair was obtained from the LDS web site. Any information you have that might help determine if this connection actually exists would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the response.
