Looking for my Twigs and Branches of The Sheppard Family from Va. Ky. WV
Still searching trying so hard to uncover the stones, the rocks, trees, and climbing the mountains to find the answers that my family has left for me. Wish they had just wrote it down and pass it on to me. For these reasons, I have been tracking, storing the piles of papers, books, and all the pictures that I can locate. Yeah, you know where, next to me on the floor. I am not a very neat or organize tracker, just a plain Jane tracker but I do have a desperate need to find my history and keep my information for the next generation of Sheppard's like me. Hope you can help me, and I wil try to assist you after all we are one big family of friends and kin.
Now for a little about this gal! I am married all my life. Married at the age of 18 and now I am 54, with a birthday here on the 30th of this month. I have been bless with a great husband who after several years from my school of hard knocks, has graduated with flying colors (just kidding) he was my high school sweetheart. My name is Jeanette Sheppard and I married W. Thomas Adkins also from West Virginia. A great father and husband to me and our three grown children and six grandchildren which he spoils rotten. I don't have his patience. I have been searching for my family line almost 20 some years. My father was killed in 1976 Fred Sheppard. My mother Helen Ruth Walsh Sheppard then remarried to another man George Mitchell who was not fond of her all in one family bagage to say the least. I have some information on my great father Lewis/Louis Sheppard 1894-1950 he was married to Bessie Ratliff 1895-1966. They had 6 sons and one daughter. Bessie had 2 children prior to her marriage to Lewis from a Pack/Payne, there names were Earnest and Florence Pack/Payne. Any help would be most appreciated on any of these. I appreciate all help. And would like to find photos of my family if possible. Thanks again!
