Virginia and I recently (2015) celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. My family roots include Hobson (of course), Garrison, Vandruff, Goff, and so many others too numerous to mention. The family tree has been my form of recreation for over thirty years, and I continue to seek and find connected families. I collect obituaries, headstone photos, old family photos, published biographies, engagement and wedding announcements for those in my family tree, and am always looking for more. I'm very grateful to those who post information without hoping for financial gain. I usually post memorials here when there is an obituary to use as a biographical paragraph. My own collected research is available for the asking.
RE: Mary Chafee Shepard Collister Hi Gerald, I am not really related to Robert Shepard. When I film a gravestone of a person who has no memorial I just go ahead and create one for them. Sometimes I do a little genealogical research on people that I create memorials for in this area of northeast Ohio. If you would like to send his death certificate copy to me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will update his memorial. If you are related to him I will transfer the management of his memorial to you if you would like. Thanks Neal
