Birth: 1799
Death: Nov. 11, 1875
Fayette County
Pennsylvania, USA

Adams yob was provided by a descendant, Ellen Hoover.

1860 Census, Somerset Co., Southampton Tp, PA, Adam Shirer, Farmer, age 64, b PA; dau Elizabeth, age 30. b PA. (Wife Elisabeth died in 1859)
1870 Census shows the two of them. He is listed as 69 and she at 62??

Adam apparently was killed by being struck by a train while visiting his son in Pennsville and was buried there (apparently not true as his headstone is at Comp in Somerset). This is supposedly documented in Somerset County courthouse and by family history. This information was received from Elizabeth Stock on 4/18/2003, who is descended from Adam and Elisabeth
