On the 1851 census for Charlotte county it has a valentine Sherman & his wife thankful Scot, and it list their children, except Sherman is spelled Sharman on the 1851 census. It shows a daughter jane h Sharman, thats the one I am thinking is my james Sherman born 1844.
my g granmother maryann Sherman was born abt 1879 Honeydale,daughter of james Sherman & sarah jane Douglas, she married john frederick Blair.
laura bell Sherman daughter of james Sherman & sarah jane Douglas married william franklin Pierce.
I have been stuck on my Shermans for many many years !!
sarah jane Douglas was born abt 1852 she was daughter of howard Douglas & mary ann Dixon.
And I know that sarah jane Sherman ( Douglas ) her sister laura bell Douglas married adam Densmore.
