Was looking for more info. on them and the Shirkey Family. Charles Nelson and his sister Mary Agnes (who married Unknown Welch) both ended up in CA from NW PA. I think the father (Peter Shirkey may have moved to MT). Mary Agnes Welch died 26 May 1950 in Monterey County, CA. They also had a brother George Shirkey b. abt 1875. No sign of him. Basically I know very little on this branch of the Shirkey family and was hoping to find out more.
