Does anyone have access to this book and time to see
if it tells us anything about there participation in the Underground
My information comes from the book:
James, John and Thomas Sheppard by Robert
published by the Gloucester Co. Historical Society in
Thomas R. b. 29 Apr 1789 married Letitia Miller.
He had siblings Mark Miller, Charles R., Benjamin, Charles,
Priscilla Wood, John E., Mary Ann and Clarkson.
Thomas R. lineage) John, Jr., John, Moses, Thomas,
His father was John Jr. (could he be the J.R. since
Thomas had middle initial R maybe his father did, too?) John,
Jr. b. 29 Jan 1767 and married Mary Miller d/o Mark Miller on 28 May
1788 in the Friends Meeting House, Salem, Salem County, NJ.
(this is the answer to your question about were they Quakers).
John Jr. died 1 Jun 1855.
