PEARL,CHELSEA,MA.TAILORESS,1908-rs@64 fourth ,chelsea,ma, 1909-
this is how it was in their marrage cetificate
then
MaySHEPPARD2 May 1909@64 fourth ,chelsea,ma-rs@64 fourth ,chelsea,ma,1909-
was born
and her record states the parents are

MosesSHEPPARD +Annnie H. HUDSON rs 64 fourth ,chelsea,ma carpenter nfld nfld

So this is the same couple why Annie instead of Harriet well if what has
worked for me in the past is true. It was Canada policy of using the middle
names. This can cause a night mare if the marrage + birth didnt use middle
names . Now yesterday you all saw the way these names married and you'de be
forced not to tie them together. If middle initials didnt get used. So if
Canada is in the picture look for this
