From Ralls County History Portrait & Biographical record, 1897 on John Henry Shepherd
" Our subject's father, Solomon Shepherd, was a native of Kentucky and one of the pioneers of Breckinridge County. He was a life-long agriculturist and succeeded in providing well for his large family. In 1825 he moved to Boone County, MO, renting a farm there for four years, when he came to this county *Ralls or Audrain not sure* and purchased forty acres of land in partnership with his brother-in-law.  The place was covered with timber which he proceeded to clear off, but only lived there about two years, then selling out and taking up his abode on a farm north of the one where our subject is now living. He entered one hundred and sixty acres of Government land, on which he made substantial improvements during his five years residence thereon. From 1836 until his death which occurred in 1866, his home was near Mexico, Audrain County, MO. His wife departed this life in 1835. Of their ten children only four survive namely, Jeremiah, John, Julia - *should be Judith*, and Benjamin. Melissa, Lucretia, Thomas, and one other, all died in infancy or childhood and Mary and Rhoda A. have also passed away. The birth of our subject *John Henry Shepherd* took place in Breckinridge County KY April 5, 1818 . He grew up on his father's farm, and when in his nineteenth year left home to make his own living. For some time he worked in a brickyard in Grant County, Wisconsin and was also employed on farms."
