My great-great-grandfather was Thomas Shepard/Shepherd Deaver, who was born ca 1803 in what is now Haywood County, NC. According to the diary of Thomas's son Squire Osborne Deaver, Thomas's father was William Deaver, who may have died in 1809. Does anyone have information on this William Deaver? I am trying to determine Thomas's parentage. Was his mother's maiden name perhaps Shepard/Shepherd?

Thomas married Louarta Keith in 1828, probably in what is now Madison County, NC. Louarta died in 1876, and sometime before 1880 Thomas married a woman named Jane, whose last name may have been Rice. I believe this second marriage was short-lived. Thomas died in 1892 and is buried next to Louarta in Madison County, NC.

I will be happy to exchange information on this branch of the Deaver family.
