Biographical Notes Ida Elizabeth EMERY -

Hide Details Note: Both Charles and his bride Ida Emery were residing at Hindmarsh at the time of their marriage. One wonders why they chose St Michael's C/E at Mitcham for their wedding. The marriage was witnessed by Clara Elizabeth Saunders and ‎[her father]‎ Thomas Saunders of Hindmarsh. ‎[Thomas & Esther Saunders had adopted Ida Emery after the deaths of her father and mother.]‎

A year later in 1883 their first child was born, Myrtle Elizabeth. They were still living at Hindmarsh, where Charles was a carpenter. Their second child, a son, was named Thomas Saunders Shepherd for Ida's adoptive father Thomas Saunders, butcher of Hindmarsh, who with his wife had witnessed Charles' and Ida's marriage. It would seem that all of the eight Shepherd children were born in Hindmarsh.

Death 2 June 1924 ‎(Age 65)‎ Penola Road, Mount Gambier, South Australia, Australia

Cause of death: Morbus cordis

Note: On Charles' death registration ‎(district of Grey)‎, he was a "carpenter and builder," born in Aldinga with five living children and three deceased. The informant was James Thomas McMahon, undertaker of Mount Gambier.

Hide Details Note: Mr. Charles Robert Shepherd
The friends of Mr. Charles Robert Shepherd, contractor and builder, of Penola-road, received a rude shock yesterday afternoon when the news spread that he had dropped dead in his yard shortly before 5 o'clock. To all appearances he was in his customary good health during the day, and went about his work as usual. Just before 4 o'clock he went into the house for some afternoon tea, and he and his son, Mr. E.J. Shepherd, had a discussion on National Insurance. They then returned to the shop and did a few more jobs, and then Mr. E. J. Shepherd went into the office, and shortly after that Mr. Shepherd stopped the engine and left the shop to go to his house, but he never reached it, as he fell dead in the yard.

He was born in Aldinga in 1858, and after leaving school he learned the trade of a carpenter. On leaving Aldinga he went to Hindmarsh where he resided for 20 years, and while there he became a prominent cricketer and played in interstate matches with Mr. George Giffen. He then came to Mount Gambier, and for the last 20 years had carried on the business of contractor and builder--for the past 17 or 18 years in the premises erected by Mr. Case, on Penola-road. During his 20 years in business in Mount Gambier Mr. Shepherd had worked on many of the most important buildings.

Forty-one years ago he was married to Miss Ida Emery, of Adelaide, and they had a family of eight children--five of whom survive. One son, Harold Reginald, was killed in the late war, after having received the military medal. The surviving members are Mesdames T. Varcoe and A. S. Shepherdson, and Miss M. Shepherd, and Messrs. E.J. Shepherd, M.M., M.P. and S.J. Shepherd.

Mr. Shepherd did not take an active part in public affairs, but was a member of the Ancient Order of Druids. When the late Mr. A. Rook mooted the big scheme for improving the lakes, Mr. Shepherd took a great interest in the proposed work, and it was under his supervision that the wood-work part of the scheme was carried out.

The funeral is announced by Mr. J.T. McMahon for to-morrow afternoon at 2.30 p.m.

Burial 4 June 1924 ‎(2 days after death)‎ Mount Gambier Cemetery, Mount Gambier, South Australia, Australia

Cards 30 June 1924 ‎(28 days after death)‎
