I am looking for descendants of John Sherman and his wife Eliza Loar, both are buried in Green Valley Cem in Knox County Ohio, their children were Moses, Margaret, John, George, Henry, Samuel, Parmelia, Harriett.Eliza Loar was the daughter of Moses Loar and Elizabeth Pierce of Muskingum County Ohio.
Eliza Loar and John Sherman were married in Muskingum County Ohio in 1840 they migrated to Licking County Ohio, until 1870 and then removed to Morrow County Ohio. where John died, Eliza his wife and his Son Henry removed to Wayne Township Knox Cunty Ohio after John's death, where Eliza died in 1910. John Sherman operated a burr Mill is these areas. I would appreciate hearing from anyone connected to this family and will be glad to share information and Photos.
Margaret is my G G Grandmother and always claimed to be a cousin to Cump Sherman,"according to my Mother" who we now know he was General Wm T. Sherman and his brother was Sen. John Sherman. Margaret had a photo of the General that said "to my dear cousin Maggie from Cump" taken during the civil war along William Wright who was also in the service of that war at the time. However, Margaret married William Wright in 1866 after the the war was over. I am sure there is a connection however, I have not found documentation of that. only the old Photo. Margaret's nickname was "Maggie"
