I have a copy of a page from the 1850 Federal Census where I found our Meeker ancestors.Living next door - or at least next on the list - is a Sherman family.The head of the family is L.(?) Sherman (I think - hard to read),age 41, a Dealer in Marble. Other family members are Maria Sherman, age 24 John H.(?) Sherman, age 13 Helen E. Sherman, age 5 Eliza H.(?) Campbell, age 34 Margaret Sherman, age 10
I don't know any more about this Sherman family, but maybe somebody is looking for them in LaPorte, Indiana records.
