I do not know if Joseph Shirkey went to the USA. I have no information about him other than that he was one of 5 children of
Jane Simpson and Robert Shirkey. Robert was born in Carluke Scotland abt 1842. Jane and Robert were married in
1863 in Presbyternian Church Balteagh Parish Co. Derry NI. One of their other sons, Davis, was born abt 1882 in Scotland and migrated to Australia early 1900s. One of Jane's brothers migrated to USA. Therefore, it is possible that Joseph also went to USA. It is a long shot but thought it one worth following up.
