Shepherd Family ~ VA WVA DE

8/8/2012, 3:27 pm

Im trying to find info on my grandfathers "Robert Shepherd" side of the family. I haven't found much info until they released the 1940 census for free.

Here is what was posted on the 1940 census:
Home in 1940: Williamson, Mingo, West Virginia

Clarence Shepherd 49 (his uncle)
Ella Shepherd 50 (his aunt in-law)
Lillian Shepherd 38 (his mother)
Robert Shepherd 22(my grandfather) (he was really 20, born 1919)(also moved to delaware after the war in the late 40's, maybe early 50's)

the rest below are his siblings:

Maggie Shepherd 20
Ida Shepherd 18
Clarence Shepherd 16
Willie Shepherd 13
Andrew Shepherd 11
Ella May Shepherd 9
Rosie Shepherd 4
I also found a death record for Ida saying she died in 1947 and a record for my grandfather about him being in the military. Also to my knowledge Ella May moved to Maryland and Andrew moved to DC and died in 96.

This is all I can find. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
