I am searching for additional information RE my GGG-Grandfather, George SHEPSTONE and his son, Henry SHEPSTONE.

George SHEPSTONE was born c1806 in Rowberrow, Somerset, England. He was married to Charlotte (?). Charlotte was also born c1806 in Rowberrow, Somerset, England. They had the following children all born in Rowberrow, Somerset, England:

Thomas SHEPSTONE (born circa 1826); William SHEPSTONE (born circa 1828); John SHEPSTONE (born circa 1832); Eliza SHEPSTONE (born circa 1834); James SHEPSTONE (born circa 1836), and my GG-Grandfather Henry "Harry" SHEPSTONE (born 19 February 1840).

Henry "Harry" SHEPSTONE married Elizabeth Mary COLES 24 February 1861 in Bristol, Avon, Gloucestershire, England. They allegedly had ten children.

Elizabeth Mary (COLES) SHEPSTONE was born 4 March 1836 in Cheddar, Somerset, England. Elizabeth was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (?) COLES.

Henry SHEPSTONE and Elizabeth (COLES) SHEPSTONE imigrated to the USA. They resided in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. Henry died in Brighton, Kenosha County, Wisconsin 22 February 1927; Elizabeth died in Brighton, Kenosha County, Wisconsin on 19 February 1913.

John COLES was born c1801 in Cheddar, Somerset, England, as was his wife, Elizabeth (?).

John and Elizabeth COLES had the following children all born in Cheddar. Somerset, England.

James COLES (born circa 1826); Jane COLES (born circa 1830); Elizabeth Mary COLES (born 4 March 1836); William COLES (born circa 1836), and John COLES (born circa 1837). It is possible that Elizabeth and William are twins being as both are cited with an 1836 birthdate.

If anyone has any information additional information RE George & Charlotte (?) SHEPSTONE; Henry & Elizabeth (COLES) SHEPSTONE or John & Elizabeth (?) COLES, I would appreciate hearing what you have. The information enclosed herein is the bulk of what I know at this time.

Thx! Lisa
