My ggg grandfather was Pinkney (PO) Daniel 1824-1919. Pinkney was the son of Shepherd
Daniel and Mary??? Shepherd is on the 1820-1830-1840 census for Iredell County NC. He
was born sometime between 1790-1800 and probably married around 1820. THey had children
Peggy, Pinkney (1824), June, Rebecca (1834), Lee, Nancy (1838), Martha (1840) and James.
I hit a dead end on finding either Mary's maiden name or what happened to Shepherd.
I've always assumed there was likely some family connection to the Shepherd Lee you
mention, but some of the dates don't match up quite right.
I know that Pinkney was maried 2x and died in 1919, I know where he is buried (Virginia),
but I've been unable to locate a copy of his death cert in either NC or VA.
This is one family thread that has stymied me for years. Personally I would love to know
that the middle initial "O" (Pinkney O) stands for and I'd like to take this
branch of my family tree back a few more generations. There are a lot of
"Daniels" in NC, I just have been unable to connect Shepherd to any of them.
