Edwin Thomas Shirley (1889-1943)
Date: February 07, 2016 12:18PM
I am seeking information on my great grandfather Edwin Thomas Shirley. He was supposedly born on 9 June 1889 in Denver Colorado to James Shirley and Anna Conley.
However I cannot find him before he entered the Marines in San Francisco on 9 August 1915. He married at least twice: 1919 in Port Orchard WA to Ruth Evans and after 1934 to Lillian Evelyn (Clarke) Porterfield. He had 3 children, Muriel, Margaret & Robert.
His military service file mentions a brother James Shirley but doesn't give a place of residence.
