1. Cpl. Warren J. Shepherd Marker
Inscription. Shepherd fought in the Spanish-American War at El Caney, Cuba with Company D, 7th U.S. Infantry. He was awarded the Medal of Honor on July 1, 1898. Superior officers repeatedly cited him for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. Born in Bullsburg (Cherry Tree), September 28, 1871, he attended the Pine Grove School across the street. He was born and raised a short distance just up Sylvis Road. After the war he moved to California and started his own business and was very successful. He died there April 24, 1942. He served his generation in his time because of his love for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Additional comments.
1. The marker is incorrect
CPL Warren J. Shepherd was with D Company, 17th Infantry Regiment, not the "D Company, 7th Infantry" as this marker states. We, the 17th Infantry Regiment Association can provide official documentation if needed to get this corrected.
