      Funeral Card

      __________________

      Mr. Shepherd was twice married, his second wife surviving him. His first consort was a Miss McLean, of Caledonia, N.Y., and by this union he had five daughters and one son - the latter and two of the daughters dying in childhood. The remaining three daughters married, and are, we believe, at present residing in Michigan. His second wife was Miss McLeish, sister of Mr. George McLeish, near Branchton, by whom he had two daughters and one son. One of these daughters is married and resides at Innerkip; the other has been living with her parents in Galt; and Mr. Duncan Shepherd, jr., for many years employed on the G.T. Railway, is at present farming with Mr. John Milroy in East Dumfries.

      The funeral of Mr. Shepherd took palce on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended.
