In Reply to: Re: Shirkey - the several origins by Gus Adams of 120

According to the book: The Descendants fo Robert and John Poage, compiled by Woodworth, 1954, James Anderson who married (1797) (Nancy) Ann Shirkey (the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Poage) Shirkey / Sharkey was the son of James Anderson and his wife Maggie.

James II and Ann (Shirkey) Anderson had the following children:

James n.m., d. ca 1840,
Margaret m. Elijah Bolinger
a child Henry
Elizabeth m. William Armistead Williamson Amelia m. Thomas Paxton
George m. 1st Mary Tucker
ten children
m. 2nd Mary Jane Lemon
six children
William m. Georgiana Backus
five children
Matthew m. Mary Ann McCluer
seven children
Ann m. __ Lane
Sarah m. Jared Morton
a son
John n.m., d. prior to 1840

I don't know if any went to Nelson Co., VA. some lived in Eagle Rock, VA and Bessemer, VA. The children moved on to IN, IL and IA.

The Poage Book has some errors in my line but it has a vast amount of information. I don't own the book so I don't know what else it has on the Anderson Line, except what I have listed above.

I hope this helps, Rob
