    1. [GA-VETERANS] Military Records for Robert Shipley
    2. Hazel Voris
    3. I am researching Robert Shipley born 1840-1850 probably in Maryland. Robert Shipley was in the Revolutionary War and maybe in some Indian Wars. They lived and owned land 1789-1804 in Franklin Co Georgia. There was Robert Sr, Robert, Nathaniel, and John Shipley. From an Auditors Ledger housed at the Georgia Archives in Atlanta is an entry, "The State of Georgia debit to Robert Shipley for his services as a Spy on the Frontier and Certificate of the Inspector General and settled agreeable to the resolve of 28 Jan last." Date was July 18, 1789. No Senate/House Journals were available. Where??? How do I find information on these resolutions?? -- I would like more information on "HIS SPY service. Would the 9 volume set of Georgia Military Affairs 1775-1842 help me?? Any suggestions or help on where/what I should do next. Thanks!! Has anyone else research for spies?? Hazel Voris
