Transcribed scrapbooks and other papers of the Shepherd Area Historical
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.

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.
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.
