Jacob Shires is my ggg grandfather. I attached information up to Christian Napolean Shires, but have hit a brick wall with him. I know he was a "Duck River Rifleman" in Company G 24th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry and was living in Obion County in 1904. If anyone has any information on him or anyone related to this line please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I am also trying to find the Shires Memorial Cemetery. Apparently there are quite a few shires cemeteries...any info would be great!
