Nancy Lee Shepherd: Memorial# 45645495
Dear MG:

Thank you for all you do in preserving and conserving so much historical data which would likely be lost, but not for your efforts.

While seven years ago is a stretch, tonight I write requesting a clarification on the data on the above memorial (45645495) you posted on Find A Grave on 20 Dec 2009, on the chance you might be related.

Is Nancy a natural child of Marion L. RUSSELL (1903 - 1975) and Vivian Lousie ANDERSON (1910 - 2001), making Nancy's maiden name RUSSELL?

Do you know the name of, or have any data on the father of her son, Jeffrey Joseph SHEPHERD (1959 - 2006)?

Best wishes in all your endeavors,
George Paul Farris

Danke Shoen for your transfer of Charles Otto Ford memorial
Just a quick note to express my appreciation for BOTH initially creating this Find A Grave memorial as a service to the larger community AND for your kindness in transferring it over to my care.

I'll get busy adding my research data. Namaste. "PJ"

RE: Hi Again!
Thank you very much, I agree with you! But you would be surprized at how some are very protective over there photos? :). Then again, you have taken tons and tons of photos.

Thank you for your time and effort! I really appreciate it.

Hi Again!
I don't remember if I asked you this already..
But do I have permission to use and upload your gravestone pictures? I have many family members that you have taken and I would like to add them to my tree.

Most of them are Murrays and Kraemers.
