This is the first time that I have researched my Sherman line. I've been really impressed with the quality of the research. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate your time. Thanks.

My dad, FRANK THOMAS SHERMAN, was born in 1922 in Amagansett, LI, NY. He was in the process of beginning to put together a family tree when he passed away in 1995. His parents were ALFRED CORTIS SHERMAN & LUCY ETTA BENNETT. He had one sibling, a sister who died in infancy. Alfred's mother's name was MARGARET, I do not know her maiden name. I also do not know Alfred's father's first name, but I do know that he left his wife & children for a period of time to go west during the gold rush. Alfred was one of many children, but I only know the name of one sister, RUTH SHERMAN CASTRO, who was the youngest. I know that ADMIRAL FORREST SHERMAN is related in some way. It has also been passed down by word of mouth that we are descended from both ROGER SHERMAN & WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN.  If anyone thinks they may be directly related or may have any information that will help me trace our Sherman family roots, please contact me. Thank you!

D. H. SHERMAN, b. early 1800ís, Lake County, IL
COMMENTS: I am working on identifying two Shermans who traveled with a wagon train called the "Banner Company" captained by a J. A. Gooding in 1849. My ancestor traveled with these men and mentions a Mr. Sherman in his diary. One source says they are D. H. SHERMAN and a G. SHERMAN from Lake County, IL. Another source, a FRANCIS TROWBRIDGE SHERMAN, who also embarked upon on the California trail that year, mentions an "H. D. SHERMAN and JOHN", who traveled ahead of him. I'm wondering if they might be the two Shermans in the Banner Company, and if they are of any relation to F. T. SHERMAN. If you know of these men, please contact me.   Any information would be much appreciated!

EDMUND SHERMAN,  d. abt. 1641/3, New Haven, CT
I'm descended from Grace Sherman, wife of John Livermore and daughter of the Edmund Sherman who died in New Haven CT around 1641/3. I'd thought that Edmund's wife was Judith Angier. Then I read Stephen M. Lawrence's Sherman-Mitchell file, which suggests that the American Edmund was the son of the Edmund commemorated in Dedham Church and married to Joan (apparently not Makin), rather than his cousin Edmund who was the son of Henry the younger and married to Judith Angier. I wonder what the thinking is on this? I'm interested because I have a couple of good friends who are Angiers of Dedham descent, and it would be fun to claim kinship, however remote! Thanks a lot, just in case... Harry

ELEANOR SHERMAN, b. Aug. 2, 1811, Sandy Creek, NY (?), m. 1831, Sandy Creek, NY, d. Jan. 5, 1899, Sandy Creek, NY
I am looking for any information anyone might have on one Eleanor Sherman. She was in Sandy Creek, New York in 1831, because that is where she married one John Crandall in May of that year.  I'm also interested in some other Shermans who were in that area in the early nineteenth century. Their names were ELIJAH SHERMAN and WRIGHT SHERMAN. Elijah's wife was named PRUDENCE COLE. Any info would be helpful.

  Frederick's father was WILLIAM SHERMAN, occupation Fruiterer.  Frederick and his family spent all their lives in Kentish Town, London, England.  Frederick was a milkman, and later a cab driver.  His family went to Boston, MA, USA sometime in the late 1880's, and then returned to London (reason unknown).  Frederick's first son, Frederick Charles was believed to be born in 1885/86 in the Massachusetts area.  Can anyone find him for me?  Looking for anyone who can help me further with the research of this family.

FREELOVE SHERMAN, b. abt. 1736, m. 1756
COMMENTS: I am supposed to be related to ROGER SHERMAN. The obituary of my great, great, great grandfather, SOLON HATCH, states that his great grandmother, FREELOVE SHERMAN, was the sister of Roger Sherman. I cannot find a connection to this family. I cannot link Freelove to the Roger Sherman family. I can find no sister of Roger Sherman named Freelove. I believe that Roger Sherman's father was married twice, first to a girl named REBECCA CUTLER, they had one child, but I can't find who that person was. Can anyone help me please? My family and I would greatly appreciate any help.

MARY HOUSE, b. Dec. 6, 1788, d. 1849, Saline, Washtenaw Co., MI
CHILDREN: Catherine (b. 1804), Henry (b. 1806), Jacob (b. 1808), Lucy (b. 1810), Nancy (b. 1812), Margaret (b. 1814), George (b. 1817), Mary Ann (b. 1819), Peter (b. 1822), John (b. 1828), and Harriet (b. 1831)
Roy Sherman's book states that George Sherman "lived for a time in St. Lawrence Co., NY; then at Little Falls, NY, from which place he moved to Michigan. He returned to Little Falls to dispose of some property and died there". Our records of his son, George, state that he came from Hammond Co., NY with his father by oxtrain to Saline, MI. While family tradition ties this line to Roger Sherman, it is more likely that they were of German stock, perhaps coming over with the Palatine immigration.  Alternative spellings found in baptismal records are Sheverman and Scheverman and Schaverman.

COMMENTS:  Looking for ancestors of George Wesley. Father "Capt. Jack" Jackson Sherman. George would be my great grandfather. I have information on his descendents if anyone is interested. He went to Montana in the 1880's. George said Roger Sherman was an uncle, so George must have descended from one of Roger's brothers. Also, can't find how Roger Sherman is descended from Capt.

GLANCY SHERMAN, b. before 1920, Tennessee (?)
COMMENTS:  My paternal family was born and raised in Sequatchie TN -- the surrounding community around Jasper TN, about 30 miles west of Chattanooga. During the late 1920s or 1930s, MR. CLANCY SHERMAN arrived in Sequatchie and opened a handle factory. This company made handles for axes, hatchets, etc. and employed a large number of locals; his products were marketed around the world. Mr. Sherman built a beautiful home with front acreage and he and his wife lived alone in the huge house, and had no children. Mrs. Sherman had a car and driver, and she shopped locally, but about once a year she apparently visited New York and other great cities to shop. The handle factory was sold when Mr. Sherman was up in age; he preceded his wife in death, and she left her fortune when she died, to a lifelong companion and housekeeper, a lady who was a dwarf. In conversation this past holiday, our family spoke with affection of the Sherman's and how they had contributed to the community.  Apparently, the beautiful house was sold recently for only $32K in a state of disrepair, and was bought by a lawyer who is suppose to restore it. We were just wondering where Clancy Sherman originally came from, how he acquired his
wealth, and curious about his family history.

GRACE SHERMAN, b. late 1600's, CT (?)
SPOUSE:  DANIEL ST. JOHN, b. 1693, Norwalk, CT
I am looking for information on Grace Sherman, who married Daniel St. John. Daniel was born 1693 in Norwalk, CT. I have seen several indications that Grace was the daughter of SAMUEL SHERMAN, and was b. in 1676, Woodbury CT. Does anyone know if this is correct? The age difference (17 years) seems a bit great. Also, their children were b. between 1716 and c. 1730, so Grace would have been over 50 when the later ones were born. Does anyone know the real parents of my Grace?

JOHN LIVERMORE  (See separate query for  John Livermore)
Here's a theory (really a wild guess) I came up with while reading Historical Sketches of Watertown, MA by Solon F. Whitney. In the book, Whitney describes a REV. JOHN SHERMAN, who came to America from Essex Co. in 1634. "Soon after" he removed to New Haven, CT, but returned to Watertown about 1647. (He was invited back in 1644, after the minister there died.) My theory is: These movements seem to correspond somewhat with the movements of JOHN LIVERMORE, original New England Livermore. Could this have been a relative of GRACE SHERMAN that accompanied John to the New World? Does Grace have any siblings named John? Just a theory, but I like to throw out "what ifs." Can anyone confirm or deny?

COMMENTS:  Harriet and Amos AMES did not have children, and he was "lost at sea". Harriet later married Benjamin BURCHSTED and had five children. This information is in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register Vol. 91, Page 274, 1937.  The name is suggestive, and the times look good, for that particular Amos AMES to be the brother of my great-great-grandfather, Allen AMES.  According to family tradition, Allen AMES had a brother who "went to sea". I believe that Allen is the son of John and Thankful (FRANKLIN) AMES living (1800 to abt 1820) in the Oneida County, New York region.  I would appreciate any information about Harriet SHERMAN and Amos AMES, who was lost at sea.

Trying to go back from here. I believe Henry's brothers name to be Jos. 'Bradford" Sherman who owned a business in Meriden, Connecticut. I have names of other relatives but don't know how they fit in ---WANTON SHERMAN and MISS ANNIE E. SHERMAN --- from late 1800's.  Also a MARY E. SHERMAN who died in 1931. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

CHILDREN:  Robert M. Sherman, William Tecumseh Sherman
COMMENTS:  I am looking for information on my Sherman lineage. I can only go as far back as my Grandfather, Herbert C. Sherman and Grandmother, Mabel T. Sherman, of Columbus, Ohio. My father, Robert M. Sherman, also of Columbus, now deceased, was always very close mouthed about his family. I do know that the family was largely from the Columbus, Chillicothe, and Lancaster, Ohio areas. There has been some discussion, although largely unfounded, that we are of the same family as SENATOR JOHN SHERMAN and his brother, the infamous GEN. WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN, who lived in Lancaster, Ohio. In fact, my father's brother, also deceased, was likewise named William Tecumseh Sherman. I just recently came into possession of Sen. John Sherman's 2 volume, self-published autobiography which I am also studying to substantiate the possibilities of such a family relationship. Anyone with further information on this Sherman line, please contact me.

HESTER SHERMAN, b. April 1, 1606, Dedham, Essex Co., England, d. Feb. 28, 1665, Fairfield, CT
I am confused! I have two Sherman lines. One is through Hon. Roger Sherman
- I think I have that one figured out. The other is HESTER SHERMAN who married ANDREW WARD.  Different trees on list her parents as Edmund Sherman and Joan
(or Elizabeth) Makin OR John Sherman and Grace Makin. (I have John Sherman and Grace Makin as ancestors to Roger Sherman I hope that is right!). Thanks in advance for your help.

CHILDREN:  Ann (b. before 1808, possibly in Columbia, New York) and Betsy (Elizabeth) (b. 1808)

HOWLAND SHERMAN, b. abt. 1770-80, Columbia County, New York
CHILDREN:  Samuel R., Ann (b. Dec. 27, 1793), and others
Howland lived in Schoharie County, New York after the 1830's until his death. Two of his daughters married Baker brothers, Reuben and Jacob. In the 1850 census, it lists Reuben Baker's birth place as Massachusetts. Reuben's oldest son was named Howland after Howland Sherman. Howland's oldest son was Samuel R Sherman, and his oldest daughter was Ann, born December 27, 1793. Reuben also named one of his sons Sherman. I have been unable to find my Sherman or Baker connection. Any clues would be welcome.

They came from Rhode Island to Troy, Bradford County, Pa. My great grandfather was Theodore Marion Sherman. I am attempting to gather more information on my line. If anyone has information I am willing to share what I know in exchange.

ISAAC SHERMAN, b. Poland, d. Omaha, NE
COMMENTS:  I am the grandaughter of ISAAC SHERMAN,  who emigrated from Poland through Canada (Detroit, Memphis, etc.) and ended up in Omaha, Nebraska. We are Jewish, and my Father believed himself to be a "Cohane". It is unlikely we have ties to England. Does any of the information in your archives or genealogy studies contain information that might be useful to me?
