I have a question for some of you who have researched Christopher Shipley. In his will he says, "...I give and bequeath to the said Uriah who is MY WIFE'S oldest son." I have his date of birth as 6-10-1811 and sister, Annie, as abt. 1810. If Christopher married Elizabeth 4-20-1811, that would seem to me that Annie and Uriah belonged to Elizabeth and not Christopher. Anyone have any thoughts or know anything specific about this? Thank you for your help.
