  • Notes 
    • "HISTORY OF SHEPHERD AND RELATED FAMILIES" by Frank Shepherd
      (1858-?) pub 1943 (Indiana State Library, Indianapolis, IN) "John
      III was an enterprising fellow who, in this Twentieth century would
      have been called a money maker, a colonizer. He was a shrewd Indian
      trader and thoroughly knew their ways. He continued to add acre to
      acre until he had a vast landed estate at his death in 1745 consisting
      of 3750 acres and much other property."
