  • Notes 
    • "The Shepherds were not Friends, but living so near the Meeting-House they gradually became 'somewhat convinced of the truth' and later a famous Friend Minister was called to the home of Mary Bryce Shepherd who was gravely ill and died apparently in the faith. Later on, her husband and family all joined the sect which worshipped so near to them, and where they neighbors gathered on First and Fifth days." [Wing Family of America rootsweb tree]

      "Daniel Shepherd was chosen the first school master in old Dartmouth. He was said to be a near relative of that 'sweete, gratious, heavenly-minded, soul-ravishing minister,' Mr. Thomas Shepherd, as he was ecstatically described." ["Five Johns of Old Dartmouth," by William A. Wing.]
