Death: ?? ??, 1856

Burial: unknown
Father: Henry Shepard
Mother: unknown
Spouse/Partner: Sarah M. Sutton
Marriage: October 21, 1834
in Houston County, Georgia


         Robert Shepard was a son of Henry Shepard and his unknown first wife. According to email communications I had, Robert was born in Lenoir Co., NC, before his father relocated to Houston Co., GA. When his father died in 1829, Robert, one of the older children, seems to have taken the lead on settling the estate. He married Sarah Sutton, an orphan, in 1834 and had several children. He then died as a fairly young man, leaving his wife to find a new husband. Overall, I do not have a lot of information on Robert. He was one of the first ancestors I discovered (my mother did the legwork on the more recent generations). His daughter's given hometown of "Hainesville" apparently confused people as there is no such town now. The current name is Hayneville and the local historians were, several years ago, debating whether the town was first named Hainesville or Hayneville. I contributed a brief history to the county history book, but never saw the result.
