Harrison O. Shepard was born in December 1865, at Mount Vernon, Indiana, the sixth son of Joseph W. Shepard and Mary E. Barter, an English lady by nativity. Harrison went to the public schools until sixteen years of age, and commenced the study of law at nineteen with Grove & Sheperd, of Anthony, Kansas. He remained with that firm for two years, and was admitted to the bar in January, 1887, when he became a partner with the above named firm, and practiced until the establishment of a United States court in the Indian Territory in 1889, since which time he has been located at Muskogee, in charge of the firm’s branch office. In 1889 he married Miss Mary Eugenia Mott, daughter of John Mott, Sr., of New Harmony, Indiana. By this marriage they have one child, named George Mott, aged two years. Mr. Shepard is a young man of gentlemanly appearance and courteous address, with an excellent education; and is enjoying a very fair practice in the United States Indian courts, and has a good prospect before him. His office in Muskogee is finely equipped, and contains an extensive library; he also is connected with the firm of Sheperd, Cherry & Sheperd, Salt Lake City.
