    Notes 
    • Goldie Mae Conley (Shinn) lived to be 81 years old. She married Richard Howard Shinn, they divorced. Once divorced, she met a man named William Stafford. She had 5 children and he had 5. They never married, but lived and raised their children together until his death. They moved with their children to Detroit where some of her siblings had already gone. Most of her descendants remain in the Detroit area, and the ones that don't still consider the area home.
      She was intelligent and strong headed. She was Christian, I believe Baptist, and read the bible everyday, many times reading to her children or grandchildren. She was a seamstress during most of her younger years. She ran boarding houses for most of her life, taking care of those that had no one to care for them. She made homemade breads, jellies & jams, and canned other fruits and vegetables, something rarely seen today. She survived all of her siblings, one of her daughters, and two of her sons. She lived on her own until about the age of 80, when she became sick with bone cancer. When she died, she had over 100 grandchildren. She was very much loved and she will be always remembered fondly by her descendants.
