Onslow Co. 1790 Shepherds / Shepards etc. Make Connection ???

Surnames: SHEPHERD any spelling
Hello Onslow Researchers,
1790 Census has several Shepherds living in Onslow Co. NC.
My oldest know ancestor was born in NC in 1970. Same old story, we are trying to place him with his family there and don't know for sure what county. Here is what we have:

George Shepherd b 1790
Polly "Mary" (maiden unknown) Shepherd b 1795
Anderson Shepherd b 1824 NC
Riley Shepherd b 1827 NC or TN
Judith Shepherd b 1830 KY
Jefferson Shepherd b 1832 KY
Franklin Shepherd b 1832 KY
George Shepherd b 1834 KY
Green Shepherd b 1836 KY
William Shepherd b 1840 MO
Andrew Shepherd b 1843 MO

It is reported that Grandfather Anderson Shepherd told his Grandson that this line of Shepherds came from Scotland originally. I do know my own father was stocky, ruddy complextioned, and red headed.
I have been searching the NC Census Indexes for Shepherds any spelling. There were a lot of shepherds in 1790 NC! )~: Will help other researchers any way I can.
Manys thanks,
Janet Shepard Price

Hi,
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,

Kind regards

You say the previous authors information is wrong and can be easily proven. I have George Cyprian Shepard in my tree too, and my held information is completely different from the previous authors. Are you able to help with the ancestors of George Cyprian Shepard?

Can you tell me if any Shepard's travelled to Ontario , Canada from North Carolina? My Ancestry leads are to Leeds Ontario Canada, where George Shepard lived and who fathered Robert Shepard around 1850.

Hello there,
My name is Patricia Shepard. I read your entry and believe the Shepard descendants you're describing are also mine. My father and sister are red heads, stocky, and complexion similar to what you described. My descendants are from Scotland but I do not know exactly where in Scotland. George Shepard born abt 1800 Scotland , was the father of Robert Shepard , miner, born in Grenville Ontario. Finally, a grandfather to George Robert Shepard, a professional baseball player in Duluth MN.
