What a surprise to see my Grtgrandma, Elgarda Shelp listed in your gedcom. I'm sort of new to my research and your gedcom has given me more info than I thought I'd have on Elgarda. I have information on Elgarda & Franklin Webster's children that I'd be happy to share with you. Please let me know if I can help in any way.
Thank you in advance for your time.

Here is some information from my family tree- mostly word of mouth-
One of these days I'm going to figure out how to use my Family Tree maker program!! Haha!!
I do have one question for you. My Great Grandmother, Mildred, dau of Elgarda Shelp & Franklen Webster married Clinton Steinman. His twin brother, Clayton, married a Josephine "Josie" Marie SHELP who was supposedly born around 1888. Do you have any knowledge of her?
Elgarda Helen Shelp married Franklin Dale Webster in 1881
-I have no birthdates for either, but my Grandma believed Elgarda to be born around 1859, you have 1860 in your Gedcom- 1880 census has her being 18yrs old which would have her born in 1862-
They had 4 children Mildred, Mae, Willard and Dan (died young from TB)
