Shirah - Taylor Co Ga
I wondered if you had found any relationship between the Shirah family and a few other Taylor co Georgia Families who also came from S.C. such a Martin, Jinks, Averett, Layfield, Herricks? (Martin, Jinks, Averett are my direct lines)

Most of the above also had sons serving in Co F 27th (a number of whom died in the War)

In the 1860 Taylor Co Census, Shirah, Jinks, Averett all seem to be living in a row. There are so many marriages among these families, although I've never run across a Shirah marriage with any of them (possibly because the 4 sons died before they actually married)

In 1860 there is also a Louvenia Shirah age 25 living in household of Wm Fennel also from S.C. (although that Louvenia is born in GA.) First time I have noticed the Fennel name. Virginia

Shirah Family
I am also reseaching the Shirah surname to add to my genealogy. Do you know if the 6 people buried in the Shirah Cemetery are the only ones buried there & is there another one in Peach co., Ga.?? Jeff Shirah has one listed just off Housers Mill Road in Peach Co. Do you know if this one in Peach co. is there ??
