Good to hear from you Peter!  You might want to get in touch with Barry and Stephen Sheppard who have both posted some great photos from Ireland and is working on Sheppard ancestry as well!

Hi my name is Peter Duffy from Ireland.  I have recently become interested in the various decnedants who left Ireland for the states for reason or another.

My great Grandmother was Annie Sheppard from Garden Hill, Castleconnell, Co. Limerick.  Her parents were David and Ellen Sheppard.  My grandmother had at least two uncles David and William Sheppard.  My family still live in Gardenhill to this day.

Dave, I am Joe Sheppard from Georgia USA.  I am descended from Thomas Sheppard, Cumberland County New Jersey.  I would like to chat with you about the four Sheppard brothers who came to Cumberland county around 1683.  Oct 24, 2017

My Sheppard family starts, as far as I can tell, in London, England.  My gr. gr. gr. grandfather Thomas and his wife, Mary Brewer were in Cork, Ireland and their oldest children were born there.  The second half of their family was born in Bristol.  They then settled in Yorkshire.  My gr. gr. grandfather's name was Thomas Todhunter Sheppard.  I would like to know where the Todhunter came from.  Any connections to anyone here?

This photo was taken around 1910-1912 and is of three of my father's first cousins, Bernard, Cecil and Frederick Sheppard.  It was taken in either Dublin or Tipperary.

Hi Dave, 

I see your description of John Sheppard says English Militia Officer.  It was a local Irish Militia, who would have identified themselves by County, he would definitely have been a Tipperary Militia, rather than an English or even Irish Militia man.
