Thank you Chris. Do you have any other information on Nath's children. I found where Lester had enlisted in the US Army about 1940 or 1941.

Hi Austin,

Glad to me you. I hope I am not too late. I am the Great Grandson of Nathaniel Shepard. My name is Peter G. Gardyna, Jr. I live in Newmarket NH. My grandfather was Edward Francis Shepard of Saugus Ma. Don't know why? But Edward and Lester removed the 2nd "P" from the name. My mother Nathalie Helen Shepard was Edward's daughter. As my daughter name is Nathalie Elizabeth Gardyna. Do you sense a theme here. I can provide you with lots of information that you are seeking for this side of the family. Nathaniel, Myra, Edward, Myra, Florence are all buried in Riverside Cemetery, Saugus Ma. Mary Ann is buried at Puritan Lawn, Peabody Ma. I don't know where my Uncle Lester is buried. But an educated question would be Topsfield Ma. Lester was in the Army in WWII. His post was the Panama Canal to protect the shipping. I have lots of information that I can catch you up on. As well as I would love to hear about the Canadian side of the Family.

Again, Nice to meet you. Stay safe. Look forward to be hearing from you. Use my email. its my last name
