      Courtesy of ADLAI ROBIN YATES PAPERS 1892 - 1987; Special Collections, Clemson University; I have always understood that Molly Yates who married Thomas Shirley was the sister of our Mary Shirley, as John Shirley, Jr., married Frances Yates who was a daughter of William Lewis Yates, of Fredericksburg, VA, as Miss Edmonia Rogers said. We had a cousin, who was a descendent of this Thomas Shirley, but I do not know her father's name, but his name may have been Thomas [Shirley] too, and I think it was; her name was Dora Shirley of Glasgow, Ky. She married a merchant there by the name of Nat. Terry, and strange to say, after reading this, I read in the Courier-Journal, yesterday, February 17, 1939 this notice:

      Glasgow, Ky.: Mrs. Dora Shirley Terry, 75, Glasgow, Ky., died at her winter home in St. Petersburg, Florida, Tuesday. She was the widow of Nat. Terry, who for many years was County Court Clerk. Funeral services will be held at Glasgow Baptist Church at 10 A.M., Friday. Burial will be in Glasgow Cemetery.

      My grandmother was the youngest daughter and youngest child of Edmund and Mary (Shirley) Rogers. Grandmother's mother died when she was only 7 years of age, and her father when she was 12; therefore, she never knew much about the Shirley kin, nor the Yates, either. She told me all about her father and her father's people, but was very vague about the kin of her mother. Aunt Edmonia Rogers died when I was only one year old, so, of course, I did not know her. She did all of the writing in the later years of her father's life for him. I was glad to see this manuscript on Shirley and Yates, as it has given me the dates of John and Thomas Shirley. I did not have and of the other kin.
