June 20, 2012 note from Ruth Smith, "I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. There was no grave for William Sheppard at the Old Bethel Cemetery. There are a lot of graves marked unknown and he could be buried in one of them. Sorry." I appreciate the time & effort. To keep another from duplicating the search, the stone photo request has been removed.
