    His birthdate is from his family Bible.

    Shepard seems to have been a Unionist during the Civil War, which might have been difficult in southern Missouri, except that the Union Army seemed to have had a stronghold in that area. His brother, William, evidently fought on both sides.

    B & Mary had 12 children; 4 did not live to be grown which were 2 sets of twins, both sets were a boy and a girl. One was stillborn, one lived one month, one lived 5 months and one lived 5 years. Only 2 out of the 12 children were boys and they both died in infancy, so he had 10 daughters! Two of them died as teens, so only 6 girls lived to maturity.
