I have had no luck finding anything past my grandparents names as they were both raised by relatives outside thier direct family. I hope to revisit the bootheel soon to dig deeper (Use to live in Kennett) and still have cousins in and around the bootheel area that may be able to help.
William Walter Shepard m. Eva (Evaline?) Jane Dillard on ?????.
Children: William "Walter" Shepard, b. abt. 1918?
William "Dean" Shepard, b. abt. 1920? d. 23 June 1999
Ernest "Ray" Shepard, b. 6 June, 1922 d.2 September
Mary Shepard Steel
Carmen ????(previous marriage of Williams)
~Ernest Ray Shepard, b. 6 June 1922 in Wardell (Pemiscot) Missouri, d. 2 September 1922 in Memphis (Shelby) Tennessee. m. in Newport News, VA. Beryl B. Vaughn 22, Feb. 1951 ("Ray") is my father.
The Dillard family are what mostly makes up the town of Wardell Mo. (Pop.200), which is within 30 mins. of Kennett, Hayti and Caruthersville MO. This is the only family outside of his siblings that I remember. Mary lives? in Steele, MO. Dean died in Arizona and I know that Walter moved to Steele a few years ago to live with Aunt Mary. (I need to go see them!)
If you would please forward any info you have, maybe I could get some verifications as well as further info on this side of m family!
