Bio and Links
Bio Photo This journey all started out with my husband not knowing his family, so I took it upon myself to find out a little more information. The little more has turned into a whole lot! But, I am loving it and enjoy learning about the people and times of long ago. If I have made a memorial for one of your family members, I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you... just put in a request.

My family are Hays/Hayes, Williams, Clicks, Boyds, Branhams just to name a few.

My husband's are the Shepherds, Row/Rowes, Hollons, Howards.

Why Hello to My Family!
Hi! I am a descendent of Charles Rowe, his son Daniel was my great grandfather. I was wondering if we had any more information on Louese Trusty Rowe? I am having issues finding her on censuses.

RE: Oops
Thanks so much for all the info. Yes, Danny Shepherd is my friend Dennis' brother. It's all the same circle we're speaking of.

When I visited them the other day Dennis was adamant that I had the wrong death date for Mollie. He remembered exactly that she had died in 1963 in Indiana. When I came home and researched he was right on. Now I'm wondering why Dennis had such a vivid memory of Mollie's death because he was only 14 when she died. I'll have to ask him about that. He started telling me all about Mort & Mollie's home when he was a kid - and about the mountains & hills in Kentucky. Dennis was actually born in Indiana but sounds like he spent a lot of time visiting family in Kentucky.

Dennis' mom & dad were Woodloe & Cleo Shepherd and his siblings were Danny Kay Shepherd (1947), Deloris May (1948), Dennis Ray (1949) and Diana Faye (1950).

Looks like your husband already met Dennis' brother and it doesn't sound at this point that he would be interested in talking with Dennis. If Dennis is interested, can I provide him with Ed's contact info so he can communicate? Dennis is just getting into this ancestry stuff so he's hyped up about it right now. Danny spent years, but Dennis really didn't pay too much attention until now......

Sorry Deb - I just clicked on your picture and you called your husband "Ed" - for some reason I thought his name was Charles - maybe because the link on your page says contact Charles Shepherd and gives an email address...............

Your Husband
Deb - your husband, I assume is Charley Jr. On the find-a-grave for his dad Charley Shepherd (1915-1965) there are some pictures. Who are the people in the first picture? Is the second picture Charley Sr holding your husband as a child?

RE: Mort & Mollie Shepherd
Great - my friend Dennis is also the grandchild of Mort & Mollie Shepherd.

What did you say your husband's name is?

My friend Shari & Dennis asked me to create an ancestry album for each of their sons for Christmas so that is what I am working on. I visited them yesterday to view what I had completed so far, and Dennis caught that I had picked up the wrong death document for Mollie - so he told me she had died in 1963 in Silver Lake, Wabash County, Indiana. I found the correct document this morning. But while he was telling me about it, he started reminiscing about childhood and Kentucky & Indiana....... It was his home until he joined the Marine Corps. Anyway, maybe your husband would like to talk with him and see what they can remember together. If your husband is willing, I can ask Dennis...........

Mort & Mollie Shepherd
Hi Deb: I've been research my best friend's husband on ancestry for him. You have a memorial for some members of his family tree (Shepherd). You mention your husband is from the Shepherd's and Howard's also. If you check out my Shepherd family tree in ancestry, you will see that my friend (Dennis Shepherd) is a decendant of Mort & Mollie's son Woodloe Shepherd who married Cleo Colleen Olinger and had 4 kids - Dennis is one of them (born 1949). Where does your hubby fit in that family and what is your husband's name? They might like to talk with each other possibly.
