Shepherd Area Historical Society
Papers

            Transcribed scrapbooks and other papers of the Shepherd Area Historical Society.
            The scrapbooks include obituaries, marriages, marriage licenses, funeral home
            notices and births. The transcriptions were graciously loaned by Rose Cohoon,
            with permission from Jane Cowles, to be scanned and uploaded to the web.
            The transcriptions are "as is", without any modifications or corrections. Please
            visit each individually to explore the contents. Some have indexes, some are
            alphabetized, and others are not. Many of the obituaries appear in several
            extractions. However, the newspaper may have been different, and there is
            different information in some.

Please check as many of the extractions as possible.

  E. Evelyn Fuller Papers - transcribed from the scrapbook of Miss Fuller
            who was keenly interested in preserving the newspaper clippings of residents of
            Southwestern Isabella County and the Mt. Pleasant area, where she taught in the
            elementary schools for several years.  Many of these people were pioneers or
            children of pioneers and contributed to the history and development of their
            communities.  The newspaper source is unknown, but it is highly likely that the
            source was a Mt. Pleasant paper.  Miss Fuller was affiliated with the DAR and
            was active in the organization.

  Hamlin, Northup, Smith & Walling Records - these records
            were copied April 8, 1894, very possibly from Bible Records, into a copybook
            owned by Miss Libbie Hamlin of Shepherd, Michigan.  The book is now owned
            by Joan Stilgenbauer Durham, grand daughter of Libbie Hamlin.  She
            lent it to her kinswoman, Irene Hamlin, who graciously permitted it to be copied
            for the records of the Shepherd Area Historical Society, November 7, 1979.
            An attempt was made to copy these facts exactly as written in the copybook, but
            some of the letters were hard to decipher and the book itself is very fragile.
