His parents were Henry Sherman Shipley and Rebecca Griffith. Grandparents were Amon Shipley and Suzanne Grim. Great-grandparents were Daniel Shipley and Eleanor Burnworth; Peter Grim and his wife, Martha. I am descended from both Grims and Shipleys.

Incidentally, I show him as James Sheridan Shipley.

Yes I am related, Grace Ida Shipley Moffitt and George Albert Morritt were my grandparents and James Sheridan Shipley and Rebecca Ann Burwell great-grandparents. I was told back when I was a child that my Shipley relatives came to Sullivan Co. MO in a covered wagon and settled in the home place where James Sheridan Shipley lived near Reger, MO. I have found a page from an old letter with the name Henry Shipley and Rebecca Hudnall Shipley purchased land in 1856 in Sullivan Co. MO. I thought Henry Shipley might have built the house where he raised his family. I have just started researching my Shipley descendants.
Would anyone know if Rebecca Hudnall Shipley is the same person as Rebecca Griffith wife of Henry Sherman Shipley? Thanking you for your help and information I always do appreciate it.

Henry's wife, Rebecca, was born 1835/36 in Indiana; her parents were born in Maryland - I don't know if this will help you any in determining her parentage. (There is about a ten year age difference between Henry and Rebecca - my files indicate he may have been married previously, perhaps in Indiana.)
