To my readers:
My husband is the descendant of Moses Benjamin Sherman.
I feel it’s important for me to offer a disclaimer for this descendant chart. You see my husband and I researched the Sherman family about 13 years ago and as beginning genealogists who were very excited about the process we failed to note proper documentation and simply copied information from wherever we found it. Now, all these years later we must pick up the pieces and provide the necessary source information for what we publish.
So having said that, I’ll provide sources for this information on this blog with the exception of this chart which is here as a sort of “jumping off place” for Sherman researchers. I make no claims as to the accuracy until I prove it myself, at which time sources will be added.
Sincerely, Susan Edminster
