Carrie E. Sherman

#5229, born 25 July 1868, died 2 April 1934
Relationship4th cousin 2 times removed of William Andrews Wheeler R.N., B.S., M.S.
Father*John E. Sherman born 7 June 1842, died 24 March 1884
Mother*Harriet A. Root born 27 July 1846, died 26 November 1921

Life Events

Birth*25 July 1868; Delaware1 
Marriage*27 February 1886; Record is in Pittstown, Pittstown, New York; The record here is from the Pittstown town record book but seems questionable, ages at the marriage date entered seem to disagree with other facts. It also says Carrie was born in Delaware.
This would be the only evidence that she'd ever been there. My guess would be that someone copying data made a mistake in transferring records? If the ages given at marriage are correct the wedding probably took place 1888, not 1886. 
Death*2 April 1934; Schaghticoke or Johnsonville, New York 
Burial*Millertown Cemetery, Millertown, New York 
Note*According to the marriage record in Pittstown, Carrie was born in Delaware. A probable Delaware connection is Grandfather Orin Sherman who had removed to Delaware after Jan 10, 1867. Cemetery data (internet) indicates her birth was 25 July 1863 (gravestone is worn but appears to be 1868). There is also a photograph taken C. 1871, with 3 children. Willie is obviously the oldest and 2 girls would appear to be the appropriate age for Rebecca and Carrie (if born 1868). In a letter to her sister Nettie, dated Sept. 1933, Carrie gives her own age as 65, which would make the year of her birth 1868. Census data gives her age as 11 in 1880.
