SHEPPARD SCHOOL

The school was named Sheppard for Mr. John M. Sheppard, because he gave the land on which the school was built. There have been two buildings. The first on was a log building. The present building was erected in 1910. and later an addition was made because of larger attendance. Some of the teachers were Mrs. Crickett Goff, W.M. Poole, E.H. Setwart, George Curlee, and Tom Brooks. The present teacher are W.S. Middleton and Mrs. Helen Smith with an average daily attendance of 40.

Mr. J.M. Sheppard was one of the early settlers of this community. The oldest building is the old Sheppard home, now occupied by Mr. W.A. Holmes. There are two churches in the community, Union Hill and Shiloh. The post office is Reagan, and the rural carrier is Mr. C.A. pierce. There are two grocery stores, one owned by Mr. J.H. Barker and one by Mrs. J.J. Gilliam.
