Shirley Stirling She was born Feb. 20, 1872 and her husband Holmes Burce was a blacksmith and worked in a shop owned by Esquire Peter West in 1838, perhaps earlier. I found this in History of the Town of Industry, Franklin County, Maine. He had lived previously in Stark. One of their sons Silas was also a blacksmith in Industry (my 2nd Great Grandfather). In this book they spelled the name Bruce instead of Burce or Burse or Bearse. On our family tree Lydian & Holmes had 7 children & each just 1 marriage. I would like to know where she was born and when they were married. Their 1st child was born when Lydia was 19 years old and their oldest when she was 41. I do not have a death date.

Shirley Stirling I suspect that my uncle Wilkie Burse, born in 1907, may have been named after this Wilie Burse. His parents were James and Blanche Burse. Can you tell me what you know about this Wilkie Burse?
