Richard Leon Shields (Find A Grave #101396970) was married to my 1st cousin 2x removed, Marjorie "Margie" Jean Simon. Richard Lynn Shields (Find A Grave #129753626) was their son. I have put in a request for a photo of their headstones. Margie would be about 82 years old and Ancestry is not telling me she has passed away, so she may still be alive.
The family changed their last name from Simons by dropping the [s] becoming the Simon family.
Lineage: Richard Lynn Shields ( -1959); Marjorie Jean Simon (1932- ) mother John Joseph Ceily Simon (1883-1959) grandfather Rev Allard Belin (A.B.) Simons (1831-1905) great-grandfather.
Rev Allard Belin (A.B.) Simons was the father of Millie Sarah Simons [Thomas], who was my great-grandmother. John Joseph Ceily Simon was Millie's half-brother. I have never been able to locate the grave of Rev Allard Belin Simons or Nancy Jane Hughes Simons, his wife. Millie's mother was Sarah Adeline Gable Simons and she also has not been found.
I am not getting any additional information on Richard Lynn Shields, so I guess the only thing you can add is his father; unless you have a photo of the headstone.
