Shepherd family of Southern Alamance/Guilford County
Hello, I am researching my fathers side of the family, which is the Shepherd family. My great-grandfather James Murphy Shepherd is buried at Lows Lutheran Church in Guilford County, as well as my grandfather Berris Greeson Shepherd. I have a list of ancestors,(going back to the late 1700's) that my grandfather had written in the family bible. I wondered if this would be of any hep to you in your research. Thank You for the information that you shared about the origin of the SHEPHERD name. I remember my grandfather tell- ing me that it started out as VONSHAEFFENHEIMER in Germany, was shortened to SHAFFENHEIMER, then to SHAEFFERD, which became SHEPHERD.

Shepherds of Alamance
Hi RJ,

I'm researching my maternal grandmother's family - Shepherd's from Alamance County. Just discovered your page here at findagrave and look forward to searching through the information you have. I am on and will be glad to share my information with you - but I bet you already know it! I think you have much more that will help me!

This grave is of my grandmother, Belva Shepherd Brook's great grandfather

Hi, RJ,
As I was researching Velna Martha Shepard Hedrick I noticed that you gave the name of her father as William Henry Shepard. Actually his middle name was McKendry. The DC for Velna shows "Hindry" but this is incorrect. I am researching this family line and He was often called "Mack" and the McKendry has followed down through the Hall line. I cannot find his parents names,but My gg grandmother was (I believe his sister) and her name was Theresa Ann Shepard Hall. There is a Wesley D. Shepard that married Catherine Payton Reynolds that I believe his a brother to Wm. and Theresa. Thank you so much for the information on this site.

Thanks for the parental information for Lafayette Shepherd. The links have been made.

I really don't mind transfering most of them to you, except for a few that had direct ties to some of my family members---starting from John Rankin Shepherd and his wife, and working forward, up to the most recent of their direct descendants.

And I don't mind the ones that came before John Rankin Shepherd, even though they would be directly related also. But I do have some of them linked--except for some that were entered by other people who ignored my request to link them also.

Hope that made sense!!

I was glad to do it Richard. I saw all the memorials you created so I made the memorial and gave it to you. I am trying to create memorials for everyone buried there. Take care, Brad
