A copy of 12 unnumbered pages of this family record was in my Shields file -- I donít know where I got it from. James Shields sent me a page on the Carr family that was missing (which has been added to this online transcription) and stated that this record is on file at the LDS library. See Notes about W. C. Shields Biography, Campaign Sketches and Family Record by James Russell Shields, great grandson of W. C. and Amanda Carr Shields.
