In Reply to: Samuel and Mary Ann (Broderick) Shepherd of Grimsby, ON by Mark D'Elia of 11738

Hi Mark,

Well once again genforum quit on me while I was posting to you so hope I can remember all I found and repost it.

I found marriage for James and I see from 1861 census that the Mary J. you mention is listed as Margaret.

Spouse Father Name:       John Behnke
Spouse Mother Name:       Louise Green
Marriage Date:       2 Jan 1907

Images shows
James is a widower, machinist, Baptist, living in Detroit. Sopohia is a widow, living in Detroit and an Episcopalian

Here is another marriage for him

In the image James is shown as residing in Detroit, born Grimsby
He is a teamster and a widower so there should be yet another earlier marriage for him but I did not find it

The reason I gave you Charles marriage is that I noticed in death record for Isaac Wellington Shepherd his mother is shown as Mary Ann Bradley - same name as in Charles marriage.

***************

Sarah Shepherd Wasnidge death does not show mother's name
