Query: Andrew or Clarissa Shepard, Ohio/Ripley Counties

                I am searching for the parents of Andrew Shepard (my paternal g-g grandfather).  Andrew was born in 1824 in Indiana and died in 1882 in Iowa. He married Rebecca Ann Elston, daughter of Franklin Elston, in Ohio County, Indiana, on April 28, 1853. 
                Andrew lived with his mother, Clarissa, before his marriage in Ohio County, Indiana, (see 1850 federal census) and in Ripley County, Indiana, (see 1840 federal census). 
                Clarissa says she was born ca 1801 in New York.  She had several children, among them a daughter named Nancy and another son named James.
