The photo and caption below were posted on the old Belmont County Ohio genealogy website in 2003.

William Russell Shields married Roberta Eloise "Ellie" Hepburn at her parent's home on Hawthorne Hill on 22 Aug 1943. Ellie is the daughter of Garfield Hepburn and his wife, Ethel Montgomery, my mother's uncle and aunt. Ellie made the "Uncle Sam" outfit and her own for them to wear in a parade in Windham and was rewarded with a trophy for her efforts. Bill died a few years ago but Ellie still lives on their 2-acre property outside Windham and carries on the tradition of the annual Hepburn Reunion on the second Sunday in August. Bill was the son of Andrew Marshall Shields and his wife, Alta Belle Russell.
