    3. Ignore this message. It would be Concord Church, instead of Zion. Sorry to bother. ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- From: "Robert L.

Sheppard (1801-1850) Date: Wed, 11 May 2016 14:28:14 GMT In an account of this man's death, in the Western Evangelist, it states that a church was built on his land.This would be Zion Regular Baptist church, organized in 1835, on the Big Sandy, southeast of Jacksonville.I have not yet been able to find a deed for this church, but this clue may be a help in pinning it down. He was a brother of Thornton Sheppard, a long-time pioneer minister in that area. Robert
