1924 Memorial Card: Emma Sheppe, age 71
Memorial card on the occasion of the death of Emma Sheppe on May 8, 1924. There's a blemish after her surname, so it's possible there's an extra letter to Sheppe.
Nothing on reverse; text at bottom indicates the card was printed by H. F. Wandell in Leipsic, Ohio.
"Emma Sheppe, Died May 8, 1924, Age 71 years" - implying she was born about 1853.
I found an Emma Sheppe who was born about 1853 and who was still alive in 1920. This was Emma Sheppe, married to Paul H. Sheppe and living at Kinderhook, New York.
Whether or not this is the correct Emma Sheppe, I don't know. If you recognize Emma Sheppe from your family research, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
Thanks for stopping by!
