I have been looking for the parents of a Mary Ann, Mary or just Ann Sherrard married in Guernsey Co, Ohio for many years now and I am still at a dead end.I am begging for your help. Here is what I know:
Mary Ann Sherad was born 1808, census of her children report she was born in Ohio. A biblo of her son says she was born in Guernsey Co. Ohio and spells her maiden name Sherrard.
Mary Ann Sherad married Samuel Oldham, 27 Jan 1831 Guernsey Co, Ohio. I have the marriage record.It reports her name is Sherad.
She died 1844 at age 36 and was buried in Founders Cemetery then moved to Old City Cemetery.She buried with her husband Samuel Oldham.
Her son wrote that the Sherrards was from the West Alexandria, Virginia section and was the family was "honored pioneers of this county"
The search for her parents has been very difficult.There has been a few Sherrard families have a Mary Ann that could fit her birth date but list spouses for her.Please can you all check your records for a Mary Ann/ Mary / Ann Sherad/ Sherard/ Sherrard born about 1808 that could be my Mary, if you have a spouse for her but it is not proven I would be interested in this information.If you know of orphans that could fit my Mary, I would be interested in that information also. Look in wills that mention her, any family tradition that mentions a Mary.Any help please, and thank you.
