Thank you very much for letting me know about this. I deleted mine and sent all of the links to the other Memorial. I also added Vane's photo. Vane was my Aunt Dollie's Father. Thanks again!
|D.C.||Re: Henry Shepperson continued|
It is very likely he was buried at the African/Cherokee Cemetery just west of Huntington, as I suspect, the "Jim Crow" laws were in effect and Indians and African/Americans were not allowed to be buried in the "then" whites only cemetery.
Whether he has a tombstone, I do not recall; having not walked that cemetery in years.
Good luck with your research and have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

|D.C.||Re: Henry Shepperson|
In 1920, Henry and family were living on the west side of Huntington, Arkansas (Diamond Township). At that time, he was 42 years old. His father and mother were born in Virgini. He was of the African/American descent. Anna, his wife was 35 years old. Her parents were both born in Arkansas as was Anna.
Her daughter Preston Harrie was 16.
Henry was a coal miner.
To answer you question about related, no, I am just a person who enjoys local history.

Karma: I note that you made the memorial for Annie Bittner and also took the photo of her grave marker at Milwaukie Pioneer Cemetery. I am a part of a group researching veterans WITHOUT grave markers. We believe Annie to be the wife of John Bittner 1848 0 1928. Are you related to, or know anything about, the Bittner family or Annies maiden name?
THANK YOU for your Find A Grave work and we hope to hear from you:)

|DBT||Re: Josiah Shepardson, FAG# 110098361|
I am not related to the Shepardsons. I reviewed the family info to try and figure out why I researched them. In that particular area it could be because they were linked to the Bronsons of Poolville or it could be that Esther was a "real daughter" of the American Revolution. I did find a tidbit that said:
"J. Hubbard Shepardson was born in Colchester, Conn., in 1802. He moved to Hamilton when five years of age; has therefore been a resident of this town for 78 years. He has been a voter for
62 years and has never missed voting at a town meeting or an election since he became of age. He seems quite proud of declaring he has never voted a democratic ticket. Published in the Brookfield Courier, 1885".
Now since the Josiah we are talking about was born in 1832, could the Josiah born in 1802 be his father. I don't know.
FYI, if you are researching New York state residents a good free site is http://fultonhistory.com. This site has old newspapers on it.
Sorry, I could not be of more assistance.
