Rosina was the daughter of Isaac Monroe Shepard and Sarah Lackore. Rosina was born 21 Jan 1827 in Denmark, Lewis Co., New York. Her first husband was Albert Knapp. She and Albert were the parents of six children. He left to pursue some mining interests and she stayed in Utah and married again. I know little about her second marriage to a man surnamed Francis.
Her third marriage to Christian Hyer found her living in Cache Valley Utah. She died in Richmond 23 Oct 1882. This picture indicates that she had children in her later marriages. I don't know very much about those marriages.
I can see similarities in her facial features to a couple of my Skidmore uncles. She was the mother of Sarah Armina Knapp, wife of William Skidmore.
