      I have a copy of the marriage license for Alexander Durvin and Lucy Harris Shephard (Shepherd?). They were married on 13 Sept. 1900 in Washington, DC. The license says that he is "of Richmond, VA" and that she is "of Columbia, VA". I assume this refers to their current residence, not where they were born. They were married by A. S. Fiske. The witness was A. Durvin (not sure who this is?).

      I have a copy of the obituary for Lucy H. Durvin. She died in Baltimore, MD on 14 October 1973. She was the beloved wife of the late Alexander Durvin and mother of Lucille Brashear, Elizabeth Mason, Alexander F. and James A. Durvin. She is survived by seven grandchildren. She was in the Howard H. Hubbard Funeral Home in Baltimore and buried at the Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore, MD. From other documentation - her father was John Franklin Shephard (Shepherd) and her mother's maiden name was Lucy W. Harris.
