George H. Shepherd was for many years a resident of Wells, PA. and had numerous friends and acquaintances throughout this section. As a matter of interest to them we copy the following item from the Oakland (Cal) Daily Evening Tribune of April 9th 1892. The death of George H. Shepherd occurred this morning at 1301 Franklin St. The deceased was very well known in this city where he had resided for some time. He was the father of L.F. Shepherd, the artificial stone walk contractor, at whose residence he died. The funeral will be held tomorrow at 4 p.m. and the interment will be private. The deceased was 73 years, 2 months and 21 days of age. Mr. Shepherd was born Jan. 19th 1810 at Bainbridge, N.Y. He removed to Wells, Bradford County, Pa, while a young man and married Miss Charlotte Capron, sister of Myron Capron, a well known resident of that place. Mrs. Shepherd died in 1856. Mr. Shepherd leaves one daughter-Mrs. Jas. K. Ingalls of Lakeville, Ore.---and two sons; W.E. Shepherd of New York City and L.F. Shepherd, of Oakland Cal. A private letter from the latter informs as that Mr. Shepherd had been sick but about a week or ten days with congestion of the lungs and was getting better when other complications arose, requiring a surgical operation. His very weak condition, together with the shock to his nerves and the congestion were to great a combination to combat successfully, age being also against him. Mr. Shepherd was well and favorably known throughout the Northern part of Bradford and Tioga counties and during his residence of nearly fifty years had formed numerous warm friendships. He was a close friend of Dr. N. Smith, of this place, who knew him intimately. Deceased often spoke of the doctor in terms of high regard during his last illness. Mr. Shepherd had been living for the past four years on his ranch near Lukeville, Oregon, but went to Oakland about six months ago on a visit, where his death occurred as noted (obituary).
