I was sent a digital picture of Shepherd John & a couple of his grandchildren. His wife isn't in the picture. He looks like his hair is still dark but his long beard is white/gray.It's not a clear picture and is sepia colored like old photos.
I would be glad to exchange pictures with you or even other information on the family. I was also sent a digital picture of Shepherd John's sister, Charlotte.I'm taking the liberty of calling Charlotte a sister as all information leads in that direction.
I believe David Noggle and Lydia Warner were the parents of 9 children.I have pictures of David & Lydia's gravestones.They are buried in a beautiful country grave yard a few miles from where I live. I think that David was into buying and selling property as there are a number of land transactions in a couple of neighboring counties. I think there is another county involved but the records in that county are so unorganized and lost that there is no way to prove that theory.I also believe that there are estate papers for David somewhere, perhaps in Illinois where he probably died.He married again after Lydia's death but there is no stone for his second wife. Do you have any informationn on David & Lydia, something that would prove that they are the parents of Shepherd John and others? Even family stories passed down from one generation to the next?
