Betty, looks like we were all wrong and maybe right! I read the TAGs (The Americian Genelogist)1985, Vol 61 which proves by brother Tobias Makin Jr's 1621 will that Grace Makin bc 1585 married an 'unknown' Sherman,(not John who died bef. 1716) 'unlikely' to be Edmund and 'no supporting evidence found'. Her sister Joan Makin bc 1595 married bef. 1621 Richard Stone. John Sherman's wife was proven,(in 1986)to be Grace Ravens (my anc.) not Grace Makin. Tobias Makin Sr's wife was Elizabeth (Westbrome)Makin of Abberton, Essex. d 1596, dtr of Thomas.
