Tracking Dan Shepherd in jail i found he had struck an 88 yr old man in Brighton over the head with an AXE and split his skull. His daughter(step) had been going to the trial which took 3 weeks and 21 hours to deliberate. Then in 1908 Julia filed for Divorce but must have cancelled as they are in following census together/ She died April 1940 and is buried with Daniel in Brighton, Washington co., Iowa. Her death cert. was on Familysearch.org.They have added so much since i was searching for her.
I have access to NewspaperArchives for Obits, etc., thru my library and can use at home -covers the United States.
I want to thankyou for sending all the extra info on all those people you have mailed me. I love to finish details if i can. Appreciate so much.
