Well once again genforum quit on me while I was posting to you so hope I can remember allI found and repost it.
I found marriage for Jamesand I see from 1861 census that the Mary J. you mention is listed as Margaret. Ontario, Canada Marriages, 1801-1928 about James H Shepherd Name: James H Shepherd Age: 49 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1858 Father Name: Samuel Shepherd Mother Name: Mary Ann Broderick Shepherd Spouse Name: Sophia M Taylor Spouse's Age: 45 Spouse Father Name: John Behnke Spouse Mother Name: Louise Green Marriage Date: 2 Jan 1907 Marriage County or District:
Images shows James is a widower, machinist, Baptist,living in Detroit. Sopohia is a widow, living in Detroit and an Episcopalian
Here is another marriage for him
Ontario, Canada Marriages, 1801-1928 about James H Shepherd Name: James H Shepherd Birth Place: Grimsby, Ontario Age: 37 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1851 Father Name: S H Shepherd Mother Name: Mary Ann Shepherd Spouse Name: Jenny Partridge Spouse's Age: 21 Spouse Birth Place: Detroit, Michigan Spouse Father Name: James Partridge Spouse Mother Name: Celia Partridge Marriage Date: 6 Nov 1888 Marriage County or District: Essex
In the image James is shown as residing in Detroit, born Grimsby He is a teamster and a widower so there should be yet another earlier marriage for him but I did not find it Jenny is s spinster residing in Detroit
I am giving you this next marriage, although this fellow Charles does not show up in the census with the family - will explain
Ontario, Canada Marriages, 1801-1928 about Chas H Shepherd Name: Chas H Shepherd Birth Place: Grimsby, Ontario Age: 42 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1852 Father Name: Samuel Shepherd Mother Name: Mary Ann Bradley Shepherd Spouse Name: Nellie Roberts Spouse's Age: 27 Spouse Birth Place: Ingersoll Ont Spouse Father Name: Robert Roberts Spouse Mother Name: Mary Pringston Marriage Date: 17 May 1894 Marriage County or District:
Image shows he is living in Detroit (same as James) and he was born Grimsby ON He is also a widower so should be an earlier marriage which I have not found Nellie is a spinster, living in Detroit
The reason I gave you Charles marriage is that I noticed in death record for Isaac Wellington Shepherd his mother is shown as Mary Ann Bradley - same name as in Charles marriage.
Ontario, Canada, Deaths, 1869-1938 and Deaths Overseas, 1939-1947 about Isaac Wellington Shepherd Name: Isaac Wellington Shepherd Death Date: 1 Apr 1934 Death County or District: Lincoln Age: 74 Gender: Male Estimated Birth Year: abt 1860 Birth Location: Ontario Father: Samuel Shepherd Mother: Mary Ann Bradley
Images hows him born March 6, 1860 ON Parents Samuel Shepherd born ON Mary Ann Bradley born Nova Scotia He died in Beamsville
Sarah Shepherd Wasnidge death does not show mother's name
Hellen Zimmerman death shows mother as Mary Ann Broderick
I did not find deaths for James, Mary(Margaret), Anna or Ada.
