STORIES OF OUR FAMILIES
To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.
Family of Charles Sheppard and
Mary Ellen Fisher - England
This is part of a collection of photographs which belonged to my Uncle John Sheppard who lived in England. A close friend of Nell Sheppard in Wem, Shropshire, had sent them to him after she died. John had known his cousin Nell, and had visited her in Wem and kept in touch. We are most grateful to his widow Valerie, and my cousin Kathleen Sheppard (Henry) in England, who sent them to us. Because of what had been written on the backs of the photos all those years ago, they were invaluable in helping us to trace the origins of the Sheppards.
