In Reply to: Re: MARY SHIRKEY-Kanawha Co. WV by Robert Shirkey of 120

Robert, I haven't checked the forum for quite a while. Yes, John Richard Shirkey ( the John living with James and Sarah Haley in Clark Co., MO in 1850) appears to be the son of John Shirkey and Nancy Nelson. I corresponded with Steve Polling in Columbus, OH, and compared notes. John Richard was living in Vinton Co., OH at the same time William Shirkey and Samantha Hampton were also there. You noted that John and Nancy had an older son whose name was not listed but an older male was listed and John R. fit that age. Steve sent me a photo of John R. but I couldn't tell much what with his beard! Steve later found that the two men had sisters in common. He found the Shikey family listed in the census living next door to some other relatives but the name was mispelled as "Starkey." The family checked out. The parents of John and William died somewhere between 1860 and 1870 in Columbiana Co., OH. I will get all this info together and mail it to you along with a letter Steve sent me regarding the Shirkeys coming to America in 1739. Dorothy Shirkey Dinwiddie
