The Bowmans are my husband's family. I am researching the following Pennsylvania families: Bowman, Shirley, George, Palmer and Fulmer.

george/shirley families

anna debra george is one of my relatives. my grandmother was irene shirley who married charles george. her parents were james fullmer shirley and may belle carter.

Anna Deborah George

Anna was my husband's GG Grandmother. She married James Fulmer Shirley 12-25-1860 in Pa. I do not show James marrying but one time. I also do not have an Irene Shirley in my tree. Did she have another name? When was your James Fulmer Shirley born? Mine was born 10-29-1829 in Olivet, Kittaning, Armstrong Co., Pa. and died 3-2-1922 in Pa.

My email is joefar@bellsouth.net in Alabama

Irene Shirley

I finally figured out who you were talking about. Her name was Myrtle Irene Shirley (born in Tunnellton, Pa.) the daugther of James Ernest Shirley and I have Nellie Belle Nelson (this name could be wrong). She was the Grandaugther of James Fulmer Shirley and Anna Deborah George. She married Charles Miller George on 1-17-1929 in Wellsburg, Brooke Co., W. V.

i would really like to find out more about nellie belle. i believe i heard this story before. the last name i heard was either carder or carter. if anyone has pictures i would love to see them

nellie belle?

i see there are a lot of people missing from this part of the family. charles and myrtle "irene" had many children. i heard a rumor that something happened in the family, and no one was allowed to talk to them.
