I would very much like to compare notes with you...or perhaps it would be more accurate to say, ask you for whatever information you could give me. I, too, am descended from Daniel Sherwood and Frances Linthicum. They are my 5th great grandparents through their daughter, Elinor (born 1776) who married Jeremiah Field. Their son Elswick Field (born c. 1808) married Guilianna Lindsay in Guildford County, NC. in 1831. Their son John Andrew Field (1846-188?) m. Mary Adeline Wilkerson (1846-1905) in 1865. Their son Ernest Marion Field (1866-1904) married Mary Rhetta Bell in 1888. Their son John Levi Field (1902-1963) was my grandfather.
