Nancy Wicker Sheppard
Birth: 1778
Chatham County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 7, 1843
Cape Girardeau County
Missouri, USA

My 5th great-grandmother.

Probably born about 1778, the daughter of Robert Hester Wicker & Hannah Simmons Holley; granddaughter of Thomas Oscar, Sr. & Mary (Hester) Whicker and Nathaniel, Jr. & Jane (Simmons) Holley.

Oh how I would have loved to have grown up in her home, hearing about the struggles of the Revolutionary War in which her daddy fought.

Grandma Nancy was born in North Carolina, then the family migrated to Washington Co., GA where she married John Hartwell Sheppard. They remained there long enough for at least some of the children to be born. About 1799 the family migrated again to Jackson, Cape Girardeau Co., MO where the family joined the Bethel Baptist Church.

Fifteen known children: Jemima, Hannah, Mary Ann, Dorcas Amana C., William, John Hartwell Jr., Sarah (Sallie), Eunice, Elisha W., Joel R., Nathaniel W., Isaac Newton, Nancy Marzilla, Arena Adeline and Thomas G.

Many thanks to Beth Mitchell for photo of restored headstone and to Brenda Joyce, who first listed and graciously transferred memorial.
