Shipley/Lincoln

Surnames: Shipley, Lincoln, Dorsey, Kendall, Parker, Walker, Maple
I received a handwritten copy of my family tree from my great grandmother. It was traced back to Elizabeth Stevens and Robert Shipley. It also has listed Charles, Ruth, Keturah, Elizabeth, Sarah, Lois, William, and George Shipley. My copy seems a little disorganized. If anyone has any information they could send me that would be great.

Robert Newton Shipley was my great great great grandad. His son Marion Arthur was my great great grandad. I believe he was the older brother of your Robert. I think thats the Robert you're referring to. If you have any info past Robert Newton I would breatly appreciate it. He was married to Susan Brown. Both born in early 1840's.

Thank you!

I don't have much information about the family, but it seems to me that Robert Shipley, not sure about middle names, had a son named Robert also and he married Sarah Dorsey?

I'm not sure if my information is correct, but there is a Rachel Shipley on my side, that was daughter of Adam Shipley and Margaret. As for Robert, one was married to Elizabeth Stevens, and Robert Jr. married Sarah Dorsey. Do you have any other information?
