I have a rather strange story. My great-great-
great grandparents had the same last name only
it was spelled different. They had a son. Not
long after the birth maybe two years, the father
died. My great-great-great grandmother was left
to raise the boy by her self. When the child
was about five his mother died. He went to
live with his mothers grandparents in Braxton
Mississippi. They spelled their last name with
two p's instead of one, so the boy started doing
the same. This is all I know. Does any one have
any information on this. I have no idea what
there names were. I have is this one story.

Have lots of people in Braxton, MS and as far
as this story goes we are spelling our name wrong.

Maybe some of you have heard about a young
son moving to Mississippi, to live with his
grandparents. Please I am very intrested to
find out how true this story is.

Is Braxton in Rankin County? My husbands grandparents were Charity Lou Shepherd (spelled in 1850 & 1960 census) married John Cosper Sheppard (current spelling). In m.l. index is spelled Miss C.L.Sheppard and J.C. Sheppard married 4-30-1868. William Sheppard married Miss C.A. Sheppard 5-6-1868. In 1860 Rankin cty census, Charity has a sister Caroline. The parents are M(artin) H. and E(lizabeth) J. Shepherd. In 1870 Rankin Cty census, there is Mary (nickname for Eliz)(young children ages agree with 1860 census), next door is William and Caroline Shephard, next door to them is John and Charity. So my sheppards married Shepherds. Let me know if we connect. Jo Dunn Sheppard
