Birth: Nov. 10, 1805
Sullivan County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Dec. 10, 1879
Hamilton County
Tennessee, USA

Orson and his wife Hannah traveled down the Tennessee River to Hamilton County from Sullivan County on a "flatboat" probably built by his grandfather, father or himself. His grandfather Eli Shipley was a boatbuilder on the Holston River in the area now known as Warrior's Path State Park in Sullivan County. His parents and grandparents are buried there on the golf course overlooking the river. Orson and Hannah's gravesite overlook where their home was located on Shipley's Hollow Rd in Sale Creek, Tn. He was my 3rd great grandfather.
