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.

"Emma Sheppe, Died May 8, 1924, Age 71 years" - implying she was born about 1853.  Text at bottom indicates the card was printed by H. F. Wandell in Leipsic, Ohio; there's nothing on the reverse.

From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

There was an Emma (Crosby) Sheppe who was born about 1853 in Vermont, daughter of William E. and Electa Adelaide (Patch) Crosby, and who was still alive in 1920. This Emma was married to Paul H. Sheppe and was living at Kinderhook, New York.  They had a daughter Jennie, born about 1873.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or if you  feel that the memorial card represents another Emma Sheppe, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
