The 1860 Census in Sanpete Co, Utah, shows a slightly different family.
Moses married Eliza Jane Adamson 22 Mar 1840 in Delaware Co IN. The database says that they sold their 32 acres in 1848 to her brother John Adamson [I don't find that Eliza had a brother John - she did have a brother-in-law John, husband of her sister Priscilla]. After the Shepherds got to Iowa, Eliza was disillusioned and refused to continue West. Moses went on without her and married Martha Amanda Bryant about 1847 or 1848 in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie Co, Iowa. They had one son. Moses made a trip back to Iowa to help other immigrants to Utah and persuaded Eliza to go West - Martha & the baby had died when he returned to Utah. Moses then married Hannah Garlick on 1 Apr 1856 in Provo, Utah, by whom he had sons Joseph & Daniel. Hannah had previously been married to Issac Hatch by whom she had sons Hyrum & Thaddeus. He married Mary Christina Olsen on 17 Dec 1864 in Salt Lake City and had a daughter Rhoda, b. 1865, who was only about a year old when her father Moses T. Shepherd died.
Moses died 19 Sep 1866, Spanish Fork, Utah Co, UT.
Eliza married (2) Stephen Markham. He was born 9 Feb 1800, Avon, Livingston Co, NY, the son of David and Dinah (Merry) Markham. Stephen had six other wives; he died 10 Mar 1878, Spanish Fork.
Eliza married (3) to Joseph Huff.
She had a total of eleven children by her first husband, Moses Shepherd.
