I had a goal today, it wasn’t a big one, but an important one. I needed to find a living Shepard descendant of William Shepard of Boston. The reason for the search is to contact them and try to convince them to participate in the Shepard surname DNA project. If the DNA matches grandfather’s, then the connection to the Westfield Shepards will no longer be speculation, but fact.
So, that said, I found a possible candidate. The letter is written and will be sent out tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.
