Seeking descendants of convict John Sheppard

2 Posted by - 1 November 2014 - Bob's your uncle

I’m looking for descendants of John Sheppard (transported aboard the “Ocean” in 1823) who married Ann Maria Carey (Free) on 30 October 1838 at Castlereagh, Sydney. John and Ann had eight children. I have claimed John on the website Claim a Convict.
