Charles L. Shepard was born February 15, 1812 son of prominent cabinet maker of Wethersfield, Connecticut, Edward Shepard and Mary Ayrault. He died per sources from an accident on May 2, 1872. The death sources show May 5, 1872 but I believe that matches burial date as his gravestone shows May 2, 1872. How did Charles die? What is exact date of death? The brothers I believe all born in Wethersfield Connecticut and 3 of them ended up in Ohio!
Any help with the Shepard family genealogy is appreciated
Thank you wikitree family
