The Archivist at St. Mark's Anglican Church kindly advises that the funeral for Sampson Sheppard was held on November 1, 1874. Samson's burial is recorded in the register of Archdeacon McMurray, who apparently performed the burial service.

Notice that there are obituaries shown for sons Richard and Henry as they appeared in the Christian Guardian (see notes for Richard and Henry). Sampson and Mary Ann do not get a mention. The Christian Guardian obituaries tend to be Wesleyan-Methodist-centric and Sampson and Mary Ann were Anglican. Liberty for presenting Sampson and Mary Ann as the parents of Henry and Caroline is taken from the Ontario Genealogical Society's transcription of St. Mark's Cemetery. Henry and Caroline are buried with Sampson and Mary Ann. Richard is shown here as a son of Sampson and Mary Ann since the Christian Guardian for Richard does show him as Henry's brother.

It is possible that Richard and Henry married sisters. This has yet to be proven.
