      Eugene Perkins found AJ Shipley and his obituary, his wife' obituary and his death certificate. All info updated according to this info. 10/2007



      Andrew J Shipley possibly had more than one wife. On 1900 California Census, there is a single Female living right next door as a widow. This was a common practice to stay out of jail for polygamy at the time. Mary B. Horton/Morton/worton?, born Feb 1846, 54 years old, widow, living on her own farm free and clear. She was born in Ohio, both her parents were born in New York. She can read, write and speak english,number on farm schedule is 173. More research is needed. 10/2007 There is no evidence that he had been in a plural marriage.

      Per 1900 Census, Andrew was living with his wife, two children, his brother Jasper. He was born Dec 1840 and was 59 years old. He was married for 34 years. He was born in Illinois, his father was born in Tennessee and his mother was born in North Carolina (May be his stepmother-Mary (Polly) Shuggars Shipley). He is a farmer. He could not read or write English, but he spoke English and owned his own farm outright. The number of farm Schedule is 174.

      Andrew had been living with Ute Perkins-his uncle in 1850, but he says in that census that he is 14, which would mean he was born in 1836 or 1837-could he have lost track of his birthdate over the years?
