My source is from a book. "The Normans of Normandy Hall" written by Dr. Lois Norman in 1971. His sources are various records from Virginia and North Carolina. Here is what is written in the book:
"Jared Ellison Groce married Sarah Sheppard in 1767; she was the daughter of James and Lucy Sheppard of NC. Her brothers were Jacob, William, James, John and Henry; her sisters were Elizabeth, Mary and Martha. This Sheppard family came to NC from Halifax County, VA. Sarah was born about 1752. She was not mentioned in her husband's will of 2 March 1803, thus it must be assumed that she died before that date."
I am in the process of receiving the entire book, wo when I receive it, I will look in the references to see where the information came from. Dr. Norman was a meticulous researcher.
