Interested in family of John S Shepard b.1826 NY state d.1896 buried Byron (MI) Cemetary. Not sure father's name or when they went west to Michigan, Mother Jane remarried an Austin.
First wife Sabra ? (1837-1956), 1 son Orlando died young.
2nd wife Mary Elizabeth Norris b.1839 MI d.1912 Argentine Twp, Genesee Co, MI, buried Byron Cemetary, daughter of Bethuel Norris & Margaret Dailey (they're in Argentine Twp cemetary).

Believe they had 9 more children:
2. Louisa E (1857-) m. Orrin Atherton
3. Sabra C (1859-)
4. Mary J (1861-)
5. John C (1862-1957) m. Annette S Atherton, daughter of Samuel Atherton & Silena Hunt
6. Ella (1864-) m. Wikes?
7. Flora J (1867-)
8. Edith R (1972-) m. Anson Atherton
9. Bertha M (1975-1944) m. George W Chase
10. Sarah E (1881-1883)

John C Shepard farmed w/sons Albert JC Shepard & Dewey Orrin Shepard in Argentine Twp (daughter Blanche m. William Francis), while son Emory Shepard went to Oregon. Albert's son Donald A Shepard farmed near Byron, MI, until the 1970s.
