      Message Board Post:

      I am trying to find more information on the family of Mary Shepler/Shipler/Sheplar (b. about 1730-40) who married Leonard Eckstein/Eckstine/Extine. One source says they were married in Frederick Co., Virginia, in 1760. In 1784 when they were living in Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania, they were divorced by an act of the Pennsylvania Assembly. They also had connections to Hampshire Co., Virginia.

      It seems likely that Mary would have been a sister of Peter, Philip and Mathias Shepler who also lived in Frederick Co., VA, and Westmoreland Co., PA.

      I'd be glad to exchange information.

      This is the first I've heard of Mary Shepler Eckstein but I am interested. I suspect you're probably right about her being related to the Westmoreland brothers, but I am curious about your comment that there were connection to Hampshire Co. Va. Could you explain those connections? Dawn
