                Some notes on Calvin Ember Shipley

 

Source LDS Submitted by Frankie Deane Shipley

Calvin's  birth place was Greene County, Arkansas.

 

I received this from Young Co.

 Young County Death certificates, Volume 1 page 48, number 464

Calvin Ember Shipley

Male White

Died: 7 July 1917

Died from Cancer of the stomach

 

I have the state death certificate and it shows a lot more information.

 

The Graham Leader July 12 1917

Calvin Ember (he was known in Newcastle as just C.E.) Shipley, an old

and respected citizen of Newcastle, died at his home on Monday evening

of Bright's disease and was buried at Newcastle. Mr. Shipley moved

from Newcastle, TX. to Bridgeport, TX. 8 years ago to work in the coal

mines and later took up blacksmithing. He had also lived at Loving.

  Survivors: aged wife and several grown children.

Mr. Shipley died intestate, No probate exists for him in Young Co.

 

Calvin's death records show he was buried in Newcastle but there is no grave marker or cemetery record of his burial place.

 

Calvin at some point in his life became a Blacksmith and worked around coal mines as a blacksmith a lot of his adult life. Most of his male children worked in coal mines and cotten gins.

 

It is interesting to note that in the 1920 census the  following family members were living together in Young Co., NewCastle, Texas;

Wylie A. Shipley his son by  his second wife Mollie shows to be divorced and head of household

  Wylie's Son  C.C. 6 years old

  Step Mother Mary F.

  Step Brother Ike W. Meadows   (Mary's son or Mollies ??)

  Sister Myrtle Miles. Do not know where her husband Orval is.

  Myrtle's child Alma A. Miles 7 years old

  Francis Miles, Myrtles first child is not in the census. He would have been 10. Maybe he died or was   with his father.

 

I have nothing else on his wives or step children as of this time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notes for MARTHA A. KING:

BIOGRAPHY

Death listed as 1887 because Calvin remarried and their first child

was born Nov. 1889

 

She was in the 1880 Jack Co. Texas Census along with her three children

She was living with her father and mother. Calvin E. was not there. Where was he?

My guess is he was working in Young or Wise Co. in the coal mines.

William Andrew Shipley was married twice. The first was to Ida May Anderson before 1893. They had five children: William born 1893 died sometime around the 1920's. He was married and had two daughters(I have no info on them yet); Twins Francis Raymond and a twin(unkown info on him)born November 17, 1894 in Pontotoc County,OK died November 11, 1966 in Stanislaus County, CA married twice Pearl Mancha Butler and Cleo Frankie Hudson; Ruby Shipley born 1897 in OK (male) married to Wilma Dyas died sometime around 1945; Myrtle Lee born 1899 in OK married to Grady Greer.

Notes for VIDA TELITHA CARRIKER:

Also known as Tilda

her name may have been Matilda Tebitha Cariker. Her grandchildren claim it is Vita Telitha but I have seen it on other records as Matilda Tebitha Cariker. She a;ways went by Tilda or Toldy. I believe she may have been named for her grandmother Matilda Tebitha Hatley Cariker.

Notes for SAMUEL CHARLES SHIPLEY:

                                       Some Notes on The Life Of Samuel Charles

                                       and His Wife Cynthia Mary Ann Shipley  

 

He was my Grandfather.

 

I will add to Samuels life as time allows.

 

 We have a great deal of family information on Samuel  Charles in narrative form submitted by other parts of the family.

Most of It is in The Truitt and Myrtle Shipley Family Reunion Book. I have the book if anyone wants more information. He was a Baptist minister in Caldwell Co., Borden Co., Howard Co. and Dawson Co. to nam,e a few. 

 

It is my understanding that he was an itinerant minister until he became the minister at the First Baptist Church in Key, Dawson Co. in

 

I will try to give a timeline of the life of Samuel Charles below

 

1874 Arkansas, Fulton Co.. Samuel Charles, First born of Calvin E. and Martha King Shipley.

 

1878 or 1879 Texas, Clay Co.. Family moved from Arkansas to Texas.

 

The 1880 Jack Co. Texas Census showed the following;

Calvin Ember was not in the 1880 census. His wife and children were living with her father and mother.

 

King       Samuel     Head     65

        Margaret   Wife            57

Shipley   Calvin E.                not in census

        M.A.                 Daught.                28

        Samuel C.  son              06

        Robert A.         son       04

        Sterling N. son              6/12

 

        There is no 1890 U.S. Census. It was destroyed in a fire in I think 1921..

 

        The 1900 census showed him in two places.

The first was at home with Calvin E. his father in Bridgeport, Texas. It seems that for some reason Calvin  listed all of his children as living at home. I found the three older boys married and living somewhere  else.

The second and correct one was in Caldwell County, Texas and showed the following;

 Charles Shipley living on a rented farm, Born 1876, age 26. (He was born in 1874 not 1876), his occupation was listed as a farmer. He must have became a full time minister after that ???.

     Mary,  wife,         born 1881, age 19.

     Verna, daughter, born 1898, age 1  

 It is interesting to note that our Charles was living next door to Isaac Franks and family (9 children).   Isaac was Mary's father.

 

        The 1910 Howard Co. Texas Census showed the following;

  Charles S. Shipley living on a rented farm, age 36,and a Gospel Minister.

     Mary C.,    wife,  age 28,    and no occupation.

     Vernia G.,  Son  age 11, (I guess they thought Verna was a boy, named spelled wrong

     Calvin I.,   Son,         age 9

     Truett,       Son,         age 7.

     Martha L., Daughter, age 5

     Annie B.,  Daughter,  age 2

    

        The 1920 Borden Co. Texas Census Showed the following;

  Samuel C. Shipley living on a rented  farm, age 45, a Minister of a Missionary Baptist   Church    

     Cyntha M.  wife,       age 38     and a housewife.

     Calvin I,,   son,         age 19     a laborer  on their home farm.

     Truitt,        son,         age 16,    a laborer on their home farm. 

     Martha L.  daughter, age 14

 

1925 Dawson Co.. Samuel became full time minister at the Key Baptist Church. He was there for 17 years until for health rasons he had to retire.

 

 

1930 Texas, Dawson Co. Census.

The census listed Samuel C. as Sidney C. (not a smart census taker)

Shipley   Sidney C.               age 56     born Arkansas      Minister Baptist Church.

        Mary C.          age 48     born Arkansas     

 

1942 Samuel moved from Key to Lamesa in Dawson Co.

 

1944 Texas, Dawson Co., Lamesa Samuel Charles Shipley passed away.

 

                                Notes on Samuel Charles

 

Some interesting differences you see in the 10 year snapshots of the U. S. census.

 

In 1880 he was Samuel C. Shipley, 06, born in 1874  father born in Arkansas  mother in  Mississippi.  

In 1900 he was Charles Shipley      24  born in 1876  father born in Arkansas  mother in  Arkansas.

In 1910 he was Charles S. Shipley  36  born in 1874  father born in Arkansas  mother  in Arkansas.        

In 1920 he was Samuel C. Shipley  45  born in 1875  father born in Missouri   mother in Kentucky.

In 1930 he was Sidney C. Shipley   56  born in 1874  father born in Missouri   mother in Mississippi

 

Samuel must have had trouble deciding which name to use and I am not sure where he came up with where his father and mother were born each decade.

 

        In 1900 his wife showed to be named Mary Shipley 

        In 1910 his wife showed to be named Mary C. Shipley  

        In 1920 his wife showed to be named Cynthia M.  Shipley 

        In 1930 his wife showed to be named Mary C. Shipley

 

 

Notes for CYNTHIA MARY ANN FRANKS:

                  Some Notes on The Life Of Cynthia Mary Ann Franks

                                       and her husband Samuel Charles Shipley.

 

Most of what I know about Mary is about the same as her husband Samuel Charles. I will not add a lot of details yet. As with her husband the family history narritave talks about her a lot especially the later years after Samuels death.  

 

In another part of this webb site I have the my Franks family history. Most of the work done on that part of the family I received from Rosey Gutherie. and from the webb site of Dick Fox. my thanks to them.

 

This is just an information note on an old family letter.

 

There was a letter dated 4 Jan 1880 by W.A. Hubbard to Isaac Lemuel Franks stating that his grandpa was a brother to Thomas Shipley.  He does not give his grandpa's name but this Thomas Shipley might be a relation to Louisa Shipley.  We do know that Isaac and Louisa's daughter, Mary, married Samuel Charles Shipley and Charles's father was named Calvin and was a cousin to Louisa Shipley Franks.  It is

believed that Mary Franks and Samuel Charles Shipley (her husband) were third cousins. The answer to the above letter came from Trudy Shipley Harper. Sterling D. Shipley's 2nd wife. was Charlotte Hubbard. Charlotte had a son by her first husband  whose name was Warren. b. 1857. Sterling and Charlotte married in Sept. of 1860. The grandfather W. A. (Warren) is speaking of is Sterling's father Uriah (which was probably the only grandfather Warren Hubbard knew). Uriah had a brother named Thomas C.

Shipley who was married to Nancy Jane Wattenbarger. So the answer is we do not have another Franks marriage in the family line.

 

                Brief Timeline on Mary Franks Shipley

 

1881 Arkansas, near Little Rock Conway Co. Cynthia Mary Ann Franks was born to Isaac Lemuel Franks and Louisa Shipley Franks.

 

1890 The US Census was lost in a fire so none exists.

 

1898 January 28th. Mary Franks and Samuel shipley were married. Probably in Caldwell Co. Texas.

 

1900 to 1944 I have listed these years in Samuels file.

 

 

 From Samuel's death until Mary's death in 1963 She was devoted to her church friends and family.

she was very active in the First Baptist Church of Lamesa and was a true prayer warrior. There are numerous stories about the love of her family and the hostitality she showed for her friend. More detail stories of her life are written by her granddaughters and if you want to read them let me know.

 

She was a great mother and wife and my grandmother. God bless her.

Robert Shipley lost an arm in a ginning accident at an unknown age.

In1944 he was living in Lamesa, Texas. He died in 1961 and is buried in Newcastle Texas.

 

In the 1880 census Robert was living at home in Jack county Texas 4 years old

In the 1900 census Robert was listed as married in Calvin E Shipley Census record, but

I do not know if he was living there or not. His occupation was listed as a coal miner. He

showed to have been married 3 years but no wife listed.

In the 1910 census he did not show up in Texas.

In the 1920 census Robert showed to be living in Young Co. NewCastle, Texas with wife Kattie M. one  child and his Father-in-law. His occupation was a cotton ginner

 

I have found Robert and Kattie's family in New Castle, Texas, Wichita, Falls, Texas and Houston, Texas.

It will be a starting place sometime.

 

Wayne Lustro Shipley is the only blood child or Robert and Kattie. The other two are adopted, but from who I do not know.

Notes for STERLING NIXON SHIPLEY:

BIOGRAPHY

He lived in and aroung the Wise, Jack and Young county area for many

years. He along with two of his brothers work at owned or managed a

gin in the Jack County, Texas area. I think I remember that he had lost

several fingers in ginning accidents. In 1944 he was living in Alvord,

Texas.

 

 

The 1880 census showed him living at home in Jack county, Texas. He showed to be 3 Mo old

The 1900 census shows him listed in Calvin E. Shipley's household and married for 2 years, but

it did not list a wife.

The 1910 Newcastle, Young co., Texas showed Sterling along with his wife voila and two sons.

Sterling did not show up in the Texas 1920 census.

 

I found a Sterling Nixon Shipley as dieing in Taylor Co. Abilene, Texas. If this is him it is the only

other information i have located. Maybe he just did not like census takers.

 

 I received the following from Mina Goodgame. I believe Sterling is her Great Great Grandfather.

Here's the bare bones of what I have. I am missing a few things here and there, though I know the generalities of what should be there, I don't have the specifics, and for that I apologize.  I hope this helps and I hope that you can help me with my holes as well--namely, everything preceding and level with Sterling Nixon Shipley of 1878.  Oh, and one more thing before I get started, there are a couple of people that have multiple official spellings and multiple official dates, so I am including what I have and I hope it isn't more confusing than helpful.  Here goes:

Most of these children also have children and I have some of the information about them as well, if you would like it, but this brings you up to my generation (Mary Isobell Shipley is my Mother), so you can see why I feel like I have so little information at this point and why I was so glad to see the notes you and the others had posted about Sterling Nixon Shipley.  Please send me any information that you can, I would be very appreciative of all the help I could get.  Thanks.

 Notes from Glenal Shipley

 

I don't know if you already know how my Grandpa, Sterling N. Nixon died.

His appendix ruptured, resulting in peritonitis.  We visited him in the

hospital in Abilene.  He and Grandma were living with Aunt Jewel at the

time.  After he was released from the hospital, he insisted on eating some

fish that had been in the refrigerator while he was in the hospital, per

Aunt Jewel.  He died of food poisoning.  He could have made it through the

food poisoning, probably, if he had not been weakened by the peritonitis.

Then again, perhaps not.

56.  JOHN HARVEY6 SHIPLEY (CALVIN EMBER5, STERLING DAVIS4, URIAH HART3, CHRISTOPHER2, SAMUEL1) was born 06 Oct 1885 in Bridgeport, Wise Co., TX, and died 24 Oct 1962 in Spanish Fort, Montague Co. Texas.  He married EMMA VERTILLA JOHNSON Abt. 1905.  She was born 22 Aug 1889 in Tennessee, and died 15 Jan 1980 in Montague Co. Texas.

 

Notes for JOHN HARVEY SHIPLEY:

   The following information came from Trudy Shipley Harper who is John H. Shipley's Grand Daughter and she lives in Tennessee.

 

From History of Spanish Fort, Tx.

John H. Shipley was born Oct. 6, 1885 at Bridgeport, Tx.  He was the son of Calvin E. and Martha King Shipley. He had three brothers: Charlie, Robert and Sterling.  His mother died when he was quite young. His father married again and from this union he had a half brother, Wylie and a half sister, Myrtle.  He grew up in the Bridgeport area and around Bowie.

John H. Shipley married Emma  V. Johnson ( b. 8-22-1889 in Sevier Co., Tn.) on April 1, 1905 at Spanish Fort.  They had  three  children: Hubert M., Pauline and John H. Jr.  They started their married life living in Spanish Fort.

After a few years they moved to New Castle, Tx., where John went to work in the Coal mines.  He decided to try another type of work, so they moved to Padgett, Tx.   He and his brothers Robert and Sterling operated a cotton gin.

They later moved back to New Castle and again he went back to the coal mines for work. It goes on to state that Mrs. Shipley lived with the fear of explosions, fire and cave ins in the coal mines. She finally had enough of living with daily fear and she brought her children and came back to Spanish Fort to her Dad’s place.

To be sure it wasn’t long until Mr. Shipley followed his family and they settled on a farm in the Bonita and Shady Grove area.  They started their farming business there, also took care of a herd of cattle for some man.

Mrs. Shipley’s father’s health began to fail, so they moved back to Spanish Fort to operate the farm on her father’s place.

Along with the farming, Mr. Shipley began tending the boiler at the cotton gin. Every fall he worked at the gin and his family gathered the crops.

The couple were members of the Spanish Fort Baptist Church and were always active in the church work. He served as Sunday School superintendent and choir director. She served as a teacher, also organist and pianist for a number of years.

At one time he was licensed to preach, but he later turned to singing gospel music as his calling. He really enjoyed praising God in song, and his tenor voice could be heard any time he was in a service where there was singing.

In 1943 they moved to Fort Worth and he went to work at General Dynamics and worked helping make planes for the war.  He worked there until he retired.

When Mr. Shipley retired, they decided to move back to Spanish Fort, and bought the old Allison Hill house and remodeled it.

 William Shipley died in Francis who was from Kusa, wherever that is, on11-09-1916. His parents were from Francis and he is buried at Ceder Grove. I think the obit said that he was 22 or so. Is this the same one? This Shipley doesn't have a head stone at the cemetery, but the Francis Wigwam said he was buried there.

BIOGRAPH

                  Some Notes on The Life Of  Our Calvin Isaac Shipley                                                                                and his wives Ida Motley and Margret (Maggie Drennan Cox)

 

I have a lifetime of Memories living with mother and Dad so I will not try to put them all down. I have listed a few things about dad that might give someone an idea of what kind of man he was. My older siblings stated he was a lot harder on them than he was on me so I feel lucky to have been born later in their lives.

 

Calvin Isaac Shipley was a lifelong Gospel singer. He was a music director in the Baptist Churchs wherever he lived. In his early years he sang for a while with the Original Stamps Quartet. He never tried to make any money at it, but he sure made a lot of friends. As his son I grew up thinking that that was what church was all about. The preacher preaching and dad leading the music. Other things I remember him doing or talking about having done in life was:

When he was a teenager he went from Texas to Montana, ranch to ranch busting broncs.

He almost always was in business for himself. Mostly while I was growing up he owned Gas Stations, Dairy Farms, Car Dealerships, Local Taxi Franchise.

In my life we lived in

Lamesa, Texas  (where I was born) 1941 to abt 1945

Paradise, Texas during this time

Bridgeport, Texas abt 1945 to Abt. 1952

Seminiole Texas abt 1951 until  Abt. 1980

Brady Texas (he was in a nursing home with my mother)  until he passed

away in 1982

He was a very religious person and a very good father and I still miss him.

 

Below is a timeline of what I know about Calvin's life. I will add more information in the future as time, space and more knowledge presents itself.

Notes for MARGRET MALINDA (MAGGIE) DRENNAN:

          Some Notes on The Life Of  Our Margret Malinda (Maggie) Drennan Cox Shipley                                                         and her two husbands James Alvia Cox and Calvin I. Shipley

 

As with dad I have a lifetime of memories about mother, but I will just give you an overview of her life as I remember it.

 

Maggie was just mother to me. She was quiet compared to Calvin (Dad). but she was always there when I needed her. She was 41 when I was born and it must have been a shock to raise a young boy at that age.

She had three sons and one son-in-law who fought in World War II. All saw combat and all came home safe. Desmond (Spook) was wounded in the leg in Germany but that was all. We lived south of Lamesa, Texas from the time I was born in 1941 until we moved close to Paradise, Texas in about 1945 or 46. Later we moved to Lake Bridgeport and then to Bridgeport, Texas . We lived in the area until about 1951 where we moved to Seminole, Texas. Maggie and Calvin lived in Seminole until they were forced by health reasons to move into a nursing home in Brady, Texas where their daughter Kasteen Locker and son Jerry Shipley lived. Dad accepted the home pretty well but mother did not like it at all. In mothers later years she wanted to spend more and more time with her brothers and sisters. I will always be greatful for the responsibility that Kasteen Locker and Jerr Shipley took in making mother and dad comfortable in their last years. Mother was a devoted member of the Church of Christ faith and Dad was ust as devoted a Baptist. It made for some interesting discussions between them during there many years of marriage. I could write forever about them but it would become more my history and not thiers so I will stop now.

Notes for MERVEL EMERY SHIPLEY:

 

Notes from Glenal Shipley

 

I don't know how much you know about Uncle Mervel.  He was the kindest man I

have ever known.  He had a laundry in Abilene.  Daddy and I would go visit

him at the laundry and he would always have saved hundreds of the little

plastic toys from the gumball machine for me.  They were usually in a little

box.  These were the kind you could put on a string and make into jewelry.

He let me step on the pedal to make the extractor work.  I suspect it is

because of Uncle Mervel's laundry that I enjoy washing clothes to this day!

It always smelled so good in the shop and seemed to be a fun place to spend

time.

 

Aunt Nora, his second wife, was very pretty.  She had dark hair parted in

the middle and a curly perm.  She was a quiet lady and Mama made us be on

our good manners when we visited her.  She had lost an arm when she was a

baby.  Her brother accidently discharged a firearm in the house.  It must

have been terrible for the whole family!  She could do almost anything from

diapering a baby to peeling potatoes with her one good arm, however she

could not crochet and loved doilies.  Uncle Mervel learned to crochet and

made her many beautiful things!  What a wonderful husband!

 

 

Will write more when I come up with more info.  If you have anything you

would like me to research, I will try.

                 iv.    NOLA GLENAL8 SHIPLEY, b. 16 Dec 1947, Abilene, Taylor Co,. Texas.

 

Notes for NOLA GLENAL SHIPLEY:

 The following is parts of an email I received from Nola Glenal Shipley, daughter of Noel Odell Shipley, son of Sterling Nixon Shipley.

 

 One time we were on our way to a pipeline job and were spending the night in

Seminole.  Daddy went to visit your Dad (Calvin Isaac Shipley) and Calvin sent him home with some cracklins to put in his cornbread . I do remember that!

 

 Newell (son of Sterling Nixon) died when he was about 2 years old.  He was rocking

backwards in a rocking chair and had a falling accident. 

 

Sterling Nixon Shipley, born in or about 1876, was married twice.  His first

wife was Isobell Viola Narcissus Davis.  She was half Blackfoot Indian and

had one blue eye and one brown eye.  She died when Noel Odell Shipley was

about 9 years old.  Sometime after that, he married a lady named Alice.  I

do not know her maiden name for certain, but Leatherwood does sound

familiar.  She was the only paternal grandma I knew and was good to us

whenever we visited.  She had several children but I never met any of them.

Grandpa farmed near Alvord.  The first time I remember visiting, he had a

pump for water in the front yard and he let me help him prime it.  The next

visit, the pump was in the kitchen and there was a sink with no hole in the

bottom and we bathed in a galvanized tub.  The next visit I remember, but

there were many visits in between, I was a teenager and Grandpa had built an

indoor bathroom with a blue toilet, sink and tub!  He always made ice cream

while we were there and let us help turn the crank.  One time his cow had a

young calf and it chased Dana Ann, who was about 2 at the time and Grandpa

laughed and laughed!  Grandpa was a sharecropper who saved enough money to

buy his own farm.  That is what Daddy said.  Each night Grandpa would pray

for a whole hour, kneeling on the hardwood floor.  He was a lay preacher as

well as a farmer.  Grandpa learned to read so he could read the Bible.  He

had a radio so he could listen to the preacher on it on Sundays.  He was a

very good man and my Daddy, Noel Odell Shipley, thought the world of him.

 

Noel Odell Shipley was baptized as a Methodist in his youth.  He and Mama

were married September 4, 1945.  He was a pipeline welder and a union

steward for Plumber's and Pipefitter's Local 798 for many years.  After an

injury to his knee in the Fall of 1967, he became a welding inspector.  He

and Mama lived in all but about 5 of the states in our nation.  He was a

much sought after employee due to his high work ethic and quality of work.

He retired for the last 6 years of his life in Littlefield, Texas, due to a

stroke he had at work on a job site in Oklahoma.  Mama was dedicated to him

and waited on him hand and foot for the last 6 years of his life, making his

days happy as she always had.  They had a very successful marriage. 

 

My Mom, Glenna Mary Tower Shipley was born March 5, 1924 in Craig, Colorado

and she died April 22, 1999.  Her Dad, Alvin Glenn Tower and her Uncle

Albert Tower helped to build much of Craig, Colorado and the Yampa Valley,

including many churches.  They were members of the Masonic Lodge in that

area.  There are a lot of pictures and memorabilia in the Museum of

Northwest Colorado in Craig.  Alvin Glenn's mother, Alice Breeze, was the

first non Indian child born in the Yampa Valley. Glenna Mary's Mother, Cora

May Smith Tower, was from Missouri and is buried near her Father's farm

outside Houston, Missouri.

Notes from Glena Shipleyl

 

Ogle Shipley and his Grandson Ray davis

 

Here is what I have for Ray Davis.  The last time I spoke with him was when

Daddy died.  He was living in Houston then.  He is back in Alvord.  I think

he inherited Grandpa Shipley's farm.  His mom was Wanda Shipley.  She

committed suicide due to ill health after Ogle died.  We had always thought

it was due to cancer, but I met a lady who knew her, who also worked for GTE

(as I did).  She worked in Denton and knew Wanda when she was young.  She

said Wanda had arthritis, not cancer.  Who knows?  I am not sure why, but I

keep thinking her maiden name might have been Crawford.

 

Grandpa raised Ray Davis after Wanda died.  He was a really cute kid in his

teens and very quiet.  I only saw him a few times, but thought he was a very

nice person.  I met his wife, Tonnie Joyce, too.  She was a very pretty lady

with blonde hair and very sweet.  Tonnie had German measles(rubella) when

she was pregnant with their first child.  The baby was born with an enlarged

heart and liver and other problems and at first they did not expect her to

live very long.  Tonnie had said she would not have any other children, but

I don't know.  Ray told me more about his family when I called him about

Daddy dying.  To be honest, I was so upset I don't remember everything.

Daddy said the way Uncle Ogle ended up in Okinawa was that there were 2

groups of people, divided by first initial of their last name.  The group

that fell into the first of the alphabet was sent one place and because he

was a Shipley, Ogle was sent on the oil tanker to Okinawa. Daddy always

speculated that if things had been done another way, Ogle might have still

been alive.  Uncle Ogle was extra special to both my Daddy and Grandpa

Shipley because he was the baby of the family.  Daddy did not have to go

into the service because he was in an essential occupation, he was welding

in the shipyards at the time.  He also had 3 children to raise.  That may or

may not have been part of the reason he was not drafted.

 

I will send you more later, if I can think of anything.
