Shipley Family
Hi Carol, I'm looking for the Shipley family who lived in Bandon, OR.

It seems that you might be related to William Walace Shipley. If this is true - I would really like to talk to you, as I'm looking for the original owner of the tin-type photo of John G. Shipley and Anna Marie (Haight) Shipley that was found in the ruins of the 1936 Bandon OR fire.

Our connection to the Shipley family - I am Betty Sears, wife of A. Keith Sears. My husband's father, Merle M. Sears - his grandfather, James Harvey Sears who married Alice Nina Shipley.

Hello Carrol,
My name is Cindy Kirk and I live in Bandon,OR.
It appears that your G.G.Grandfather, Warren L. Shipley, was a half brother of my G.G. Grandfather, William Wallace Shipley. I have been trying to find out more about our family history and find relatives (distant or not), to try and put some pieces of the puzzle together.
I would love to hear more about our family if you are willing to share. I don't know what new information I could pass along to you if any, but if I have any, I will send it your way. If you don't mind, I could leave you my personal email address if you like, so that we can futher this conversation if you are interested. Thanks, and I hope to hear from you soon. Take Care, Cindy L. Kirk (Trott)

Hi Carrol,

I uploaded some rare photos of great grandpa Warren and his family (also for Alma Rosetta). Can you help me identify who is in the photos?

RE: Gerald Shipley
Yes, our love for black liquorice must be genetic in the Shipley line or something! Everyone on this side seemed to be fond of it or horehound candy or similar bitter flavors. If I can't find any around the house, I get crazy and drop a splash of Anise extract in my coffee (black, of course).

I'll reply to you shortly with private email about the other stuff.

Hi Carrol! We find each other again. We were exchanging e-mail earlier this decade via another forum.

Regarding Abel, Here is what I know:
He was a member of the colonial group that organized against the invading British during the "Ticonderoga Alaram". You can find his name listed in this document, page 173:,+Hollis,+NH&source=bl&ots=hDxmAQ36er&sig=LQHb6bZZ4w4MCVHpmdObKE5qVTA&hl=en&ei=1sXgSuqkFoz-MZz-tMMI&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CBgQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=Abel%20Shipley%2C%20Hollis%2C%20NH&f=false

When he died his wife Lucy remaried Caleb Farley, who was a Lieutenant. They all resided in Hollis, NH.

Abel and Lucy's son Amos (one of nine) moved to and settled in Londonderry, NH, and also had nine children with Mary "Polly/Patty" Boyd.

I don't believe their grave sites have been found yet or added to Find-A-Grave, but you will find Anna Marie Height as well among the following lists I have contributed to (?):

I can contact you via e-mail as well so you have my private address. Feel free to collaborate with me more, but please note I lack much time these days...responses may take a while!
