Yes, this is the one and the same. Napoleon B Sherard was the mother of both Julia Arabella Sherard and John Holmes Sherard aka Jack. My wife, Emma, is the granddaughter of John Holmes Sherard aka Jack and his wife, Emma Narcissus Beebe. Napoleon B. Sherard was the son of John Holmes Sherard (I) and Sarah Elizabeth Tartt. I have followed the Sherard Line since 1977, but have yet to determine what became of Napoleon B Sherard who deceased prior to July of 1860. Additionally I cannot find anyone who knows where the Sherard Cemetery is in Sumter County, AL. I know one exists because Marcus McConnell, the attorney who previously served as the head of the Sumter County Historical Society, responded to a letter re the Sherard Family in 1977. Julia Sherard Kornegay has many, many descendents, of whom I have exchanged information with over the years. I have a picture of Julia in early adulthood plus some correspondence left behind by John Holmes Sherard aka Jack's daughter born outside his marriage who kept meticulous records. Do any of your ancestors ever speak of John Holmes Sherard aka Jack or what became of Napoleon?
