  1. Interesting photos and snippets of history. Also interesting to see that relatives of Shephard considered “shot by a vigilante posse” to be assassination.

  2. The photograph where time has taken away the name is so moving and common place in the Welsh cemeteries where I grew up. Your photograph is so evocative of strong memories and important moments.

  3. It appears that Mr. Shepard’s family was not convinced that he was in the wrong at the time of his death. I’ve visited quite a few historical cemeteries, and I think this is the first time I’ve seen “assassinated” on a marker.

    • His granddaughter who was an eye witness, Margaret, said he was unarmed and shot 20 times by police officers when captured at one of the family homes. First time I’d seen “assassinated” on a marker as well.
