|Howard Shepard - Age one year, six months|
We did not intend to see my cousin on our recent visit to Upstate NY, but as it turned out she wanted us to stop by if just for 15 minutes. Well, 15 minutes turned into over an hour of catching up. Towards the end of our stay we talked about genealogy. In the course of that conversation my cousin said she had two American Tourister suitcases filled with photos and “other stuff” that she had cleaned out from her mother’s house. Would I like it? Well…we dug around in her basement until we found them, and she was only too happy to help load them into the trunk of our car.
I am so excited to work on my Aunt Beverly’s family line. The majority of the photos are labeled! Some of the family lines I will be working on are: Shepard, Day, Monroe, Vorhis, Benton, Garatt, Spaulding, and Dakin. The adventure begins!
