  1. Hello, I have just started following the Bovard line thru my father Harold born 1906-7. Isaac and ursula would be my great, great grandparents. Your info above is incredibly helpful to me. Have you followed the family on to James Shepherd and Jane Ricketts yet? I am completely new to geneaology but would love to collaborate with you on this line, I just don't know how that works. Please let me know if I can help and in what way.
