hi, I just found out my grt grandfather was named bud sheppard, he was the father of Thomas Nicholas sheppard, , Thomas was born in polk co Georgia in 1888, and died 1952 in rome Floyd co Georgia, I am currently trying to find out who bud's decendants, I know that Thomas married first to Zeddie Martin in bartow co Georgia, and apparently after 1930 Cenus Zeddie died and on the death certificate it shows Julia Findley as his wife with Frank who was son from first marriage. Julia appears on the 1940 Census, and Frank was about 16 yrs. old. They are buried in the Bethal cemetery in Floyd co Georgia. and TN Sheppard is on find a grave.

Angie, wanted to update you on the Shepherd pottery reference in Burrison's book "Brothers in Clay". I located John Burrison who is a professor at Ga. State University in Atlanta and corresponded over the course of about 16 months about the piece of pottery shown in his book that was made and signed by my gg grandfather William F. Shepherd. It was stored at the Atlanta History Museum. Long story short: I purchased the piece yesterday and now have it for display in my home. Couldn't have done it without your first shout out in July, 2010. Thanks so much for your help.
