Find·A·Grave Family Connections
Ricky -

Hi! In entering each deceased family member descending from Zenas Shepherd (1784-1837) into Find·A·Grave, I have come across direct connection to two of your memorials. They are Jay Monroe Clark, and his wife, Firna S. Clark, both buried in Rushville Village Cemetery, Rushville, Ontario County, NY. These individuals are connected to Zenas through Firna Shepard (the spelling changed), daughter of Horace William and Inis Viola [Reamer] Shepard. On each of the memorials that I have entered, I am including the Family Link information, thereby creating a family tree through Find·A· Grave. If you would, could you please add the family link information to their memorials as follows:

Firna Shepard Clark
Father: 50094278
Mother: 50094358

Spouse: 26603678
Year Married: 1933

Jay Monroe Clark
Spouse: 26603765

In addition, feel free to add all or part of the following to their Bios:

Hi Ricky,

You mentioned Sanford Willcox in a memorial page you have on here. He was my Grandpa! I was just thinking of him and how much I miss him still and decided to google his name and came across your page about your cousin.

I remember my Grandpa talking about your Dad when I was just a kid and I'm sure I met him but I don't recall meeting him when we would visit my grandparents in Wayne.

Anyways - I thought I would drop a note to say Hi from a relative who knew your parents.
