Thanks for the picture

Hi-I appreciate your pic of the Wheeler Graveyard. I visited up there 5 years ago. It looks like it has been cleaned up, at least from what I see in you pic. When I was there it had weeds as tall as my head and I felt I was going through a jungle! Lots of unmarked graves, I am sure. So, is it tended and taken care of, now? Keep up the good work!

|Linda Wieland-Burti||Sheppard Family|
If you are related to William Sheppard and his wife, Atlanta, then you and I are very much related! I have their original wedding license. It was handed down to me by my mother, Mary Ann Sheppard-Wieland, born 1928. It hung in her Grandparents home, George & Mary Sheppard. They lived in Yonkers, NY. George & Mary had two children. George (d. 1924) & Atlanta, (1899-1973). Those two names have been repeated many times throughout the generations. I also have a tin-type photograph of William Sheppard holding a very young child. We always believed it to be his son, George Sheppard (b. 1870). Additionally, I have the family Bible. It's torn, and in pieces, but the pages provided for inscription of births, deaths, and marriages remain intact. I would be happy to provide you with scanned copies of the family Bible info, as well as any pic's I have. I have many. It's just difficult at times to put names with the faces!

Wm Sheppard Sr & family were some of the first founders of that church. They were on the old church registers, but their stones were very eroded on unfinished-type stones. (Possibly sandstone or limestone, something like the red rounded stone in the right background of William Stokes photo from Grandma's description.) They had only name & date. 30+ yrs ago, Grandma Reed went down to read them, but she was very old & couldn't see very well. (The Reed you photographed is not related but was Grandma's Dr.) Her husband, Edw. Walter Reed wanted to be buried there next to his mother's family, the Sheppards, but there were no further plots available. It may be that nothing legible remains, but if you ever go back,
Wm Sheppard Sr. 1812-1884
Anne Sheppard - 1803-1889
Wm Sheppard Jr. - 1836-1872
Robert Sheppard - 1838-1875
Samuel Sheppard - 1842(43)-1865 a civil war vet.
Mary Ellen Sheppard Ketcham - 1846-1924
Lucy Ann Sheppard Reed 1872-1922
Thanks again for your time & effort. S. Johnson

Thanks so very much for your photos of the Gravestones in First Methodist Church Cemetery in Central Islip. I will never likely get there myself, so am grateful for the visual connection. Thanks again. S. Johnson
