         Laura L. Shepard was one of the children of Robert Shepard and Sarah M. Sutton. She married Joe J. Anderson after the Civil War. A bible record gave her different birth and marriage dates, but I have to review those.

         While I know little of her, her husband's biography includes a poem, which was popular at that time. It is rendered here as a message from a mother to her children, but the original poem is written as a mother speaking to her son. This poem is generally known as "Like Mother, Like Son" and was written by Margaret Johnston Grafflin (1849-1925). The original includes another verse, as follows:

Be yours then the task, if task it shall be
To force the proud world to do homage to me,
Be sure it will say, when its verdict you've won,
"She reaped as she sowed. Lo! This is her son."
