Descendants of John Sheppard


11. Nancy A. Sheppard

Her death date, unknown source, is listed as 26 Nov. 1864, which has to be wrong since she is in the 1870 census!

12. Sara A. Elizabeth Sheppard

There is a Sallie E. Hadden, 1 July, 1843 - 19 June 1873 who is buried at Indian Creek Baptist. I do not know how she fits in with the rest of the family.

William A. Hadden
This could be his sister:

Willingham John T., 1stLt., Enlisted 5/1/62, Stone Mountain, Appointed Lt 8/26/62, With section in FL 2/64, Sick in hospital 9/25/64 Charlottesville with intermittent fever, Transferred to hospital at Lynchburg 9/27/64, Sick at home 11/29/64 with nephritis by order of medical examining board, Sick at Stone Mountain, GA without leave 12/64, 1/65, and 2/65, Dropped from rolls 3/31/65. PR Widow applied Dekalb Co. 11/9/10. She was a resident of GA since 5/20/34. John T. Willingham married Barbara H. Hadden 12/18/56 in Dekalb Co. She owned a home at Stone Mountain. Witness's W.P. Brown and N.M. Langford state that Willingham was home on furlough at surrender. He left command at Charlotte, NC by authority of doctors and officers. He was not able to return. Several members of company were stricken with sickness at Charlotte, NC in 9/64. Willingham would have been Capt. if he could have returned. Willingham died 6/9/86 at Stone Mountain, GA.

16. John Thomas Sheppard

Middle name from conversation with his daughter, Ruth Sheppard Martin, 14 Mar. 1997.

45. Ruth Sheppard

I used to visit Ruth when I was little. I called her "Aunt Ruth", and we would go to the woods to pick blackberries, and several times I got bit by "chiggers" and they really itched. She raised bulldogs, and always had 3 or 4. They would run and climb up on the ceder chest at the living room window to see who was going by the house. At age 94, she is still living in her home, and takes care of herself. 1997

48. John Thomas Sheppard

Wm Sheppard Family Cemetery

George W. Moore

Co. D, 42nd GA Inf. Regiment

Died of food poisoning.

57. Laura Emma Aycock

This may be her:
Wife: L. E. AYCOCK
Marriage Date: 31 Jan 1886 Recorded in: De Kalb, Georgia
Source: FHL Number 365271 Dates: 1882-1893

23. James Anderson Sheppard

Had an illegitimate son when he married, said to have had a still when he was younger.

68. Charles C. Sheppard

This was James Anderson's illegitimate son whom he and Elizabeth Tanner raised. I do not have any idea who was Charles' mother, and neither did my mother, Hazel Pittard Clark, Anderson's granddaughter. In the 1913 Atlanta City Directory, he was working for the Atlanta Safe Co., and resided at 17 Doane with Mattie. In the 1923 Atlanta directory, he was listed as a painter, living at 349 S. Ashby.

Elizabeth Tanner

She was a good person and her family did not want her to marry Anderson, because he had a son out of wedlock. She raised that son Charlie like he was her own.

73. William P. Sheppard

He was Hazel Pittard Clark's favorite uncle. I don't think he ever married, and Hazel remembered when she visited her grandparents, that she would sleep in Uncle Billy's bed, and put her cold feet on his back. He died as a result of the influenza epidemic of 1918.

24. David Crockett Sheppard

Co.D, 42nd Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Army of Tenn., DeKalb Rangers, DeKalb Co. GA Private July 2, 1962. Captured at Vicksburg, Miss. July 4, 1863 and paroled there July 6, 1863. Surrendered at Greensboro, N.C. April 26, 1865

Served with 42nd GA Inf. Regiment, with the war over, David started for home from Greensboro, NC.
