Sheard – Walker Marriage

by Laurel | September 9th, 2009

September 9, 1907, page 8

Law Sheard of Aldenville, a machinist for the Stevens automobile company, and Mrs. Ada Walker of 83 Jackson street in Holyoke were married Saturday evening at 59 Commercial street, Rev. E. B. Robinson performing the ceremony. Mrs. Walker is well-known in the city, being a trained nurse, Mr. and Mrs. Sheard will reside at 59 Commercial street.

From The Springfield Republican.

[Note: Law Sheard, I believe, was the son of Law Sheard and Caroline Brook. In 1910 Caroline reported having given birth to nine children, seven still living. The Sheard family of Holyoke had connections through marriage to the Astley, Pratt, Shugrue lines. At the moment, The children of Law and Caroline that I am aware of are Gertrude, Ada, Martha & Arthur. I assume Law is also one which leaves an addition two children, unknown to me. If you are connected to this family and can help me out with additional information it would be appreciated!]
