I am a ggggrandson of James Sherard and Nancy Cornelison of Missouri.
We have a book entitled "The Descendants of James Sherard and Nancy Cornelison" which was compiled by Gerald Sherard of Lakewood, CO.A copy has been filed in the Library of Congress as well as with the Church of Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City.
I visited the Courthouse in Middleton, Ohio and obtain copies of the probate records of Samuel Sherard, father of James.I also obtained copies of deeds running from Samuel to his son, James and daughter-in-law, Nancy.
I also obtain James' probate records in Missouri.
Please let me know what information you have.
Family legend states that the Sherards were Huquenots driven out of Bordeau, France during the inquisition and escaped to the United Kingdom.
My wife and I visited the Sherard family home at Melton Mobray.It was interesting even though it appears that my family are not lineal descendants of James Sherard, the original Earl of Harlborough.
I would appreciate hearing from you, whether or not you are a descendant of James and Nancy, etc.
