John Ambrose and Elizabeth Danner Shirley
Date: February 07, 2016 12:17AM
I am trying to find the lines of John Ambrose Shirley and his wife Elizabeth Danner.
John Ambrose Shirley was born Sept. 10, 1770 to unknown parents and somewhere in Virginia. He died October 9, 1843.
Elizabeth Danner was born around 1783 in Pennsylvania to George Danner and unknown mother. George was born in Rhineland Germany and participated in the French and Indian War.
John and Elizabeth settled in Mason County, KY. Their sixth child, John Alexander, was born in 1812.
John Alexander Sr. married his first wife, Lydia Blakely, Aug. 8, 1835. Their fourth child, Philemon Lowery, in Marshall County, IN Sep. 20, 1846.
Philemon married Lydia Jane Severs on Mar 26, 1868. Their second child, Arvilla Louella, was born in Inwood, IN on Dec 16, 1872.
Arvilla married Merton W. Miller on Dec. 17, 1897. Their third child, Herbert Merton Miller, was born Feb. 16, 1901 in Norton, KS. Herbert is my grandfather.
Any help anyone can provide on the ancestors of either John Ambrose Shirley or Elizabeth Danner would be greatly appreciated.
