Hi Sherman Family and Friends,

In November, Debbie Brockett, a writer for GV Magazine asked for permission to use a picture of Moses and Susie by their boxcar home in an article she was putting together for the December issue. GV stands for Grand Valley (Colorado) and the  magazine is a fun look at this community and the many activities available there.

We were happy to oblige Debbie’s request and enjoyed reading the article titled “Yes, Grand Valley, There is a Santa.” Seeing the picture of Mr. Ed’s great-grandparents Moses and Susie in the magazine was a real treat.

If you’d like to have a look at the article, follow this URL: http://www.dabrockett.com/article12.htm

Here’s the picture used in the article:

All for tonight.

Hi Everyone,

These old postcard pictures were among the items my husband inherited from the Sherman family, probably acquired when Moses and Susie Sherman lived in Montana and Moses was employed by the Northern Pacific RR.  They’re in thumbnail so just click to see the large version.  Enjoy!

This lovely picture of my husband’s Grandparents and Mother was probably taken about 1918-1920.  Names: William Clay Sherman (1885-1969), Johannah (Hartwell) Sherman (1887-1967) and Beatrice Ruth Sherman (1907-1933).

Moses Benjamin Sherman was employed by the Northern Pacific RR for a number of years.  We aren’t sure whether he worked in multiple locations or not but do know he and Susie lived in Drummond, Montana for a number of years while Moses worked for the railroad as the “Water Tender” in that location.

Here’s a picture of Moses and his son William Clay Sherman sitting near the water tower and the superstructure is clearly visible. We assume the small building directly behind them is the home of Moses and Susie.

In 1998 Mr. Ed and I visited Drummond and found that a water tower is still in existence there but we assume this tower is the source of drinking water for Drummond.  The old NPRR tower was no doubt torn down years ago.

And last but far from least is Moses Sherman’s “Certificate of Annuity” from the railroad on his retirement November 8, 1938.
