Jacob Shepard's Wives
Kent, I see that you show Lena __?__ as a second wife of Jacob Shepard. I don't believe that can be true, although the 1850 census entry does look like Lena. The census data was collected 17 August 1850, and Cheney (Hartwell) Shepard died 16 October 1850. So Cheney was still living at the time of the census. Lena could be the census takers misinterpretation of Cheney, or perhaps Lena was a nickname or a middle name? The age of Jacob's wife in the census is 70 which was exactly Cheney's age.

There is another question. The 1855 NYS census shows Jacob with a wife Eunice or Emma (It looks like Eunice to me), age 20 and born in Genesee Co., and a child Alice Shepard, age 1. Who was this? It was generally not acceptable for a single woman and a single man to live in the same house, and there were often marriages of convenience. I have another male ancestor, in the same time frame, who married his daughter-in-law for the reason of convenience. Eunice is of the age of Jacob's grandchildren. Have you discovered anything about Eunice and Alice?

Gedcom of Lemmon Family?
Kent Shepard,

I see that you have entered a LOT of information on Find A Grave for the Lemmon) Family. Our family is having a family reunion in Smithfield, Utah, in July, and I am trying to gather information about the Lemmon family. I know that my grandmother Rozett was baptized in the "Smithfield Creek" on January 9th (cut a hole in the ice so she could be baptized on her birthday). I'm guessing that is now Summit Creek. We want to show the family where that is, as well as other stories.

While I have the basic Lemmon information down to Rozett, I do not have much about the descendants of other children of Washington Lemmon. I have been adding from Ancestry and Family Search. Could you provide a Gedcom file of your records?

Relationship to James Allreds and Joseph Taylor
I enjoyed reviewing your virtual cemeteries.
I was wondering what your relationship was to the James Allred and William Taylor families.

The is the Taylor website. Most of the Taylor's in the Ogden area are part of the family. Many of the Allred's in Spring city are also part of the family. We have a database of over 70K persons.

I would like to visit.

Sarah Jane Butterfield Crane
Could you please add some children for Sarah Jane Butterfield Crane and James George Crane. I would really appreciate it.
I also created a memorial for her, and so if you add these children I can delete my memorial. Thank you.

Eliza Marie Allred
I have two Eliza Allred's; one from Randolph County, NC and the other from Panola County, TX. Are you related to either of these (neither had a middle name that I can find)?

Ricky Wayne Allred
Thank you so much for the more detailed obituary for the above individual.
May I ask if you are related to the Allred's since you have quite a few in your virtual cemetery.

Wondering if you are the person who linked Perlina (#35114262) to Geneir R. Cunningham (#65114244) since you were the original creator of this memorial.
It is incorrect and only the original person linking these 2 can unlink them.
