We have these 3 mentions in our Shirley archive for Abbeville Co SC and Barren Co KY deeds
Abbeville land plats
[James Cullin] is probably a former member of Broad Run Baptist Church and possible husband of Clary Smith, daughter of Caleb. His 1788 plat joins Henry and Sarah (Shirley) Holtzclaw's 1793 plat. There is every reason to believe that the Moses Smith who owns adjoining lands was from the same general area of Prince William County VA Smiths.
Robertson, William 220 acres 96th Dist on south side of Turkey Creek of Saluda River. Surv. Feb 16, 1793 by Adam C. Jones, Jr. DS. Recorded Aug 1, 1793. Plat: Wm and Robt. Robertson, John Cullin, Henry Holtzclaw, John Watts, south fork Turkey Creek.
Barren Co KY deed
1825 Moses & Nancy Shirley to Henry Holtsclaw, Deed, Bk K p. 172, 153 acres near Dripping Springs Church
Very odd that we don't know who this Sarah Shirley is. Hmmmmm.
