Biographical Sketch of William Shedd Jr.

William Shedd Jr. was born on 5/2/1769 in Pepperell, MA. He died in Sherburne, Vermont in 1841. He was 71. He is Number 107 in the book "Daniel Shed Genealogy" [He was the son of William (Number 42 in the book "Daniel Shed Genealogy"), who was the son of Jonathan, who was the son of Samuel, who was the son of Daniel].

He evidently accompanied his elder brother Amos Shedd in the migration to Norridgewock, Maine, as a "William Shade" is enrolled there in the United States Census of 1790 as head of a family of one male over sixteen years, no male under sixteen years and no female.

Apparently he did not find Norridgewock to his liking, as he soon removed to Rutland, Vermont, where he engaged in farming for a period of several years. Later he lived in Mendon, Vermont, and finally in Sherburne, Vermont, where he died about 1841.

He married Mary Stevens, born in 1773 in Rutland, Vermont, in 1794 when William was 24.
