Family:Shepard, David (1712-1752)
David/Daniel Shepard (Eleanor3 Whitney, Joshua2, John1), son of Samuel and Eleanor3 (Whitney) Shepard, born 10 Nov 1712, Plainfield, CT, and died 10 Nov 1752, Plainfield, CT, at age 40.
He married firstly, 8 May 1732, Plainfield, CT, Mehitabel Spaulding, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth (Haynes) Spaulding. She was born 7 Feb 1714, Plainfield, CT, and died in Sep 1735, Plainfield, CT, at age 21.
He married secondly, 3 Dec 1735, Plainfield, CT, Lydia Meacham, daughter of Jeremiah and Deborah (Browne) Meacham. She was born on 28 Nov 1709, Windham, CT, and died before 21 Apr 1798, Plainfield, CT.
It seems likely that there are two individuals conflated here: Daniel and David Shepard. I don't know how to separate them.
Children of David/Daniel and Mehitabel (Spaulding) Shepard were:
i. David Shepard, b. 10 Jan 1732/3, Plainfield, CT; m. Phebe Cady.
Children of David/Daniel and Lydia (Meacham) Shepard, all born Plainfield, CT:
i. Mehitabel Shepard, b. 4 Sep 1735; m. Capt. Joseph Burgess. ii. Lydia Shepard, b. 13 Sep 1737; m. 24 Sep 1766, Norwich, CT, Enoch Pierce. iii. Benjamin Shepard, b. 4 Jul 1740. iv. Asa Shepard, b. 17 Aug 1742.
