The USS Shipley Bay (CVE-85) was a World War II Casablanca-class escort carrier that participated in the Battle of Okinawa and also Operation Magic Carpet, which brought American servicemen home from the war in the Pacific. She was launched February 12, 1944, and decommissioned June 28, 1946. Although she had a distinguished career for such a short life span, her existence also has preserved the memory of John Harry Shipley who graduated from the Naval Academy in 1880, and served our nation up to the early twentieth century.

When talking about Eldersburg and Sykesville Maryland history, the names of Elder, Patterson, Dorsey and Warfield are commonly heard. Other less well known names include John Welsh and Abel Brown. But the Shipleys were in the Eldersburg area earlier and for a longer period of time than the Patterson's; they married into the Brown family, and through the descendants of that marriage, also married into the Warfield and Patterson families; patented land tracts that were later sold to the Elders, the Browns, and the Pattersons; and were neighbors to all of them. The Shipleys had many children, and much of the land that they patented was sold to their neighbors or divided among their children. In this paper, Janine Wilson discusses how the Shipleys tie into the history of Eldersburg. (29 pages)
