I did it again. I ordered more newspapers on microfilm because I am a glutton for punishment. But this time I ordered “The Parkersburg Daily Times,” a West Virginia paper from Wood County. I am now going to see if I can find any tidbits about the Shepards in the Wood County area. The first film I have requested covers the time period of the mid 1860s, so just after the war of the rebellion, also shortly after West Virginia actually became a state of it’s own. My fingers are crossed.
