JAMES SHARMAN, b. 1798, Wenhaston, Suffolk, England, m. 18 Oct 1821
  MARY KERISON (or Kerrison), b. 25 Oct 1801,  Wenhaston, Suffolk, England. 
  They had 9 children all born in Suffolk (Wenhaston & Halton). They came to and remained in Quebec, Canada. I understand that James had 2 brothers, George and John. 
George was convicted of poaching and shipped to Australia for imprisonment. John was personal servant to one of the English nobility. He and his master found a sum of money after the Battle of Waterloo which was deposited in the Court of Chancery. John died young and the family were not able to prove ownership through inability to declare their relatives four generations back.

JAMES MARK SHERMAN, b. 1800's, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Illinois
CHILDREN:  Ella, and 4 other children
I am looking for any information about James M. Sherman. He was a Methodist-Episcopal Minister. He attended a seminary in Illinois. After graduation, he was sent to Indian Territory (I assume Oklahoma and Texas) as a circuit preacher. James was, reportedly, either the son or grandson of Senator John Sherman.

James M. Sherman loved preaching, fast horses (in case the sermon wasn't well-received), and played the violin. He had five children. His wife, name unknown, was an English emigrant. They lived in Central Texas by the 1890's.

Ella Sherman, their daughter, was my great grandmother. Ella married William Selby Hardin (aka Bud Hardin) and they lived in Williamson County, TX. Their union produced one child, Violet Webb Hardin, my grandmother. William died about 1900 from gunshot complications. Family rumor has it that he joined the Rough Riders under an assumed name and was wounded while in Cuba, which may just be an attempt to legitimize being shot.

Any information or leads regarding James Mark Sherman and his lineage would be appreciated.

COMMENTS:  Looking for ancestry of Jane Sherman. Believe her brother, Joel, was living with her in 1860 Somerford, Madison, Ohio census. Earlier research (1850) shows this Joel in Sharon, Worthington, Franklin, Ohio census with probably a widowed mother, Elizabeth, and married brother, Jasper. Ohio marriage record for both Jasper and Joel show different wives after 1860 and/or the original wives of earlier census records. Jane and James Eaton moved to Missouri and lived out their lives. They had 10 children, 7 alive in 1900 in Cedar, Dade, Mo and then Boone, Wright, Mo, where Jane dies in 1907...just before dc's are kept. Research in the actual area reveals her grave, and some ancestors that don't know of her parentage, siblings.

JOHN SHERMAN, b. March, 1862, Ohio
COMMENTS:  I am looking for the parent's of my g-g-grandfather, John Sherman. Census records state his date of birth as March, 1862 and both he and parents birth locations as being in Ohio. He was orphaned at a very young age and lived at the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphans Home in Xenia, Greene County, Ohio. He also is said to have had a sister, Jennie, who also stayed in the same orphanage (born 1865 according to census records) and possibly a brother named Andy. His parent's probably died at about the same time, possibly of one of the many epidemics that were common at that time. I estimate John's parent's death date as being between 1865 and 1875. My grandmother tells me her grandfather always said that the people at the orphanage told him he was somehow related to General William Sherman of Civil War fame. Previous researchers have found no records exist at the orphanage for the years he was there. Please send me any helpful info.

MARY SHERMAN, b. Ohio, d. after 1847, Iowa (?)
COMMENTS:  My 4x g-gma was a Mary Sherman who was born in Ohio. Mary and 2 brothers (one named John) and a brother-in-law named Elkanah Bush moved to Marshall Co., Iowa in 1847. The family story is that she is a first cousin to General Sherman, but I cannot find her in the Sherman family tree, and really know so little about her before she came to Iowa. I do have a picture of her, and would dearly like to find out which branch she belongs on. Can you help?

SPOUSE:  CHARLES SQUIRES, b. 1846, Middlebury, Wyoming Co., New York
CHILDREN:  Sherman, Anna, Grace, and Ina
COMMENTS:  I am looking for the parents of Mary SHERMAN,  who married Charles SQUIRES.   Charles' brother, William Robbins SQUIRES, b 1842 Middlebury, Wyoming Co, New York, m Mary Jane SHERMAN b 1839, the daughter of Nichols SHERMAN (1810-1880) and Ruth Amelia BELDING. Nichols was the son of Samuel SHERMAN (1770-1852) and Mary Dawley; Samuel died 1852 in neighboring Genesee Co (Bethany) New York. It seems quite possible that Charles SQUIRES' wife Mary was closely related to his sister-in-law Mary Jane (SHERMAN) SQUIRES.

MARY ELIZABETH SHERMAN, m. 1869, Tennessee (?)
CHILDREN:  Wesley A. Wilson, b. 1870, Tennessee
I am looking for any help on my Sherman ancestors.  I know that my mother's grandfather (John Wilson) married a Mary Elizabeth Sherman , poss. in Tennessee, 1869.  Their oldest child, Wesley A., was born in Tennessee  in 1870.  I know they were in Eadmonson Co., KY in 1880, and in Warren Co., KY. in 1900. The children were in Evansville, IN in 1914, but the parents are listed as dead,at that time.  I have been unable to find Mary Sherman's parents, 1900 census shows that her parents were from Tennessee, but I can't find them.  A family story is that she was the daughter of Gen. W. T. Sherman, who disowned her when she married a confederate soldier, or that she was a niece, or a cousin.  I am unable to verify any of this.  Can you help?

ROGER SHERMAN (Honorable), b. April 19, 1721, Newton, Middletown, MA
COMMENTS:  This is all very interesting. I have a copy of the Thomas Townsend Sherman book (1920). My father, Alden O. Sherman, is one of the last people in the book (born 1918). I am a member (although not active) of the Colonial Dames in the State of Connecticut, being directly related to Roger Sherman (signer of Declaration of Independence etc.) as my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather. I think I got the number of greats correctly! The most interesting Sherman (besides Roger, and my father) was Rev. John Sherman, who became the first Unitarian in New York State to found a church. As an active Unitarian, I find that thrilling. Are there any other Shermans in Connecticut that have some of these same connections? Sherman is my own name. I didn't change my surname when I married.
