I hope I can help with ur requst for information on Shepard Thaxton and Shepard relationship, Shepard Thaxton was born abt 1798, Goochland Cnty Vir and married to a Martha Wilkerson around Dec 1832 in Gallia Cnty Ohio.
Shepard's father was David Thaxton(Thacston) born 2/7/1756 in Goochland Cnty, Vir, he married Sarah Shepard 1777, Goochland Cnty, Vir. I haven't worked on the Shepard line as trying to work on my Thaxton lineage, but have reached my end with Abel Thaxton of Goochland Cnty, Vir, born abt 1709 and married a Lucy Davis in 1728/29? in Prince Edward Cnty, Vir.If anyone knows any more on Abel and his decendants I would be very interested. Thanks!
