SHEPHERD - EMERY.--On the 26th October,
at St. Michael's, Mitcham, by special licence, by
Rev. W. H. Mudie, Charles R., fourth son of John
Shepherd, Esq., to Ida Elizabeth, second daughter
of the late Joseph Emery, and adopted daughter of
Thomas Saunders, Esq., both of Hindmarsh.

Biographical Notes Charles Robert SHEPHERD -

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 3 August 1944 ‎(Age 85)‎ Mount Gambier, South Australia, Australia

Burial 5 August 1944 ‎(2 days after death)‎ Mount Gambier Cemetery, Mount Gambier, South Australia, Australia

Notes
Adoption Ida's father died 1865 aged 45 and her mother in 1866 aged only 34. Ida was adopted by her step aunt Esther and her husband Thomas Saunders. The closeness of this relationship was demonstrated when Ida named her first son Thomas Saunders Shepherd.
Death of spouse 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.
Biographical Notes 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.]‎
