In Reply to: Shirkey VA>OH>IA by Marilyn Campbell of 120

Marilyn,

I have a good deal of information and contacts on John's line.

I have John being born in Rockingham Co., VA and marrying Mary, possibly Mary Beam. John moved to Seneca Co., OH ca 1831 and died in Bettsville, Liberty Twp., Seneca Co., OH in 1882.

My information has been compiled from contributors and is not original research.

I show John as the son of Gideon (or Killean) and Frances (?) Shirkey. This Shirkey line may have been from the area around the borders of Germany, France and Switzerland.

John and Mary had the following children:
Anna m. Jacob Sharett
William m. Susan Riech
Jonathan Roy m. 1st Martha C. Elliot
children: Orin E. m. Sarah Parkhill
Rufus
m. 2nd (Mrs.) Mary Morgan
children: Elzora
George O.
Martha M.
John Martin

Elizabeth
Joseph
Rebecca m. L. M. Jackson
Samuel R.

Please remember this is not from a primary source but from correspondents. I have more information on this line and ancestry which I would be glad to share. I can also give you names of those who have written me on this line.

Rob
