LOUIE ARTHUR SHERMAN, b. abt 1854/55, CT (?), d. January, 1947, Kansas City, MO (?)
CHILDREN: Chester, Harry E., Valentine, Louie Roscoe (my father, born 1905); Edwin (born 1908), and Shirley

It is my understanding that he is related to Roger Sherman, but I am very uninformed as to how to go about finding out detailed info. Any help?

1920 Census for Kansas City, Missouri

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.

MYRON ADELBERT SHERMAN, JR.
I have been a computer nut for years, but not an Internet nut - for the most part because I never really understood what it had to offer until I decided to take a chance and see. I sat down one day, after working on my family genealogy on a program I had purchased, and subscribed to the Internet. My first real investigation was to go to a directory - probably Yahoo - and type in GENEALOGY. Wow! I was impressed at the number of sites I could access and got really confused with the whole experience. I did click on a couple personal home pages and thought that they know so much - how would I ever get there? Then somehow, I don't even know how (isn't that the truth, sometimes even now) I got to a place that said put in the name of the family member you are looking for. Well, I didn't have to think long there. I typed in my grandfather's name, MYRON ADELBERT SHERMAN, JR. After awhile, a page of Myron Adelbert Sherman's came up, with sources to click on for more information. Well, thanks to the home pages of a very wonderful woman, I found my entire family genealogy. My cousin, MARGE SHERMAN LUTZVICK, had done a trememdous job, and I hurried and emailed her, ordered the book she had written, and began my adventure in bringing my grandfather back, closer to me than he had ever been.
I know my grandfather is proud of what I have done, and even prouder of the Sherman Family. Now I not only have found my family, but I have become a new "bean" in the SOY (Shermans of Yaxley, England) Family. I get newsletters, emails, and pictures regularly from different parts of my family and a sense of belonging. I have given my kids more stories and a heritage along with family now, and I can leave my legacy for others to enjoy. Thank you, Marge, and all of the Shermans of Yaxley for your research now and evergoing, and may I and others discover, learn, and benefit from your undertaking.
