Guess we can all relax in knowing that Benjamin Shirley was not dug up and moved as we all thought!
John called me back this morning Sept 12 2007 after inquiring about the burial of Benjamin Shirley showing up on the Ancestry.com web site,
This is what John of the Fla National Cemetery told me via phone call this morning.

Benjamin Shirley is Not buried in the Florida National Cemetery!
Never was and never will be!!
this answers a lot of questions for me, but anyone searching the internet would never know that he is not buried their from looking at the listing in ancestry.com so I am going to post this on some of the lists that I post to and in the shirley message boards too. So no one has to search to find he is not in Fla!
