  What a splendid view and so restful for family burials here, overlooking the Holston River where the family settled in the late 1700's. No wonder Eli was a boat-builder

 Shipley Family in Tennessee. Benjamin Shipley Sr. fathered two sets of sons and Eli is from his first family along with Samuel, Richard, Conrad and Thomas Shipley and the second family consisted of Nathan and James T and most likely Benjamin. Benjamin's will of 1803 is mainly about his second family since the other sons were older and pretty much settled in their lives with the older sons settling in Sullivan Co and the younger sons settling in Washington Co
