I am doing research on the Shepards (All spellings) for my Cousin Scott Shepard.
I have his family back to Mary Polly Shepherd (nee Rhodes) wife of George Shepherd b approx 1790 d approx 1850, Onslow NC.
His father was George Sheperd 1747-1823 Onslow NC m. Mary Marshburn.
His father was George Sheperd 1727-1774 approx. Onslow NC.
Nis father was John Sheperd Jr - dates unknown.
His father was John Sheper Sr - approx dates 1680-1770, still of Onslow NC.
We are trying to research if there are any English, Scottish routes, and also trying to verify dates and further details of George backwards.
If you are able to help I would be more than grateful,
