    • x "DUKE-SHEPHERD-VAN METRE FAMILY" by Smyth, (Allen County Pub. Lib.,
      Ft. Wayne, IN) "Memoranda of journey of William Brown and Thomas
      Shepherd--Shepherdstown to Wheeling: On Apr. the 18th, 1786, Wm.
      Brown and Thomas Shepherd set out for Wheeling. Route out: Opequon,
      Cauffmans, Boyd's Ferry, Kings, Griers, the Mountains and Thos. Wills
      (places spent the night) Returning: Catfish (Washington, PA),
      Chrisians Gap, Monongahela, Levi Springers (Uniontown, PA), Mountains,
      Griers, Wm. Grays, Springs (Berkeley Springs, W. Va.) and
      Shepherdstown." "In relation to the road taken by Thomas Shepherd
      and William Brown in 1786 when they visited the region west of the
      Alleghany Mountains, where John Grove and his wife Mary Brown Grove
      had settled,..."( letter M.M. Hopwood, Apr. 19, 1907) It is unknown
      if this is William Brown, Mary's father or brother. The Thomas
      Shepherd would probably be her uncle.
