Can anyone please help me "connect the dots" between this first Ulster, Ireland/South Carolina Shearer/Sherer line below to this second Jasper, Alabama Sherer line (which is mine):
FIRST LINE----ULSTER, IRELAND/SOUTH CAROLINA
Matthew & Sarah Shearer came from Ulster, Ireland with their son Hugh & his wife Lydia and their son William. they were given a land grant.

Thomas Sherer Sr m. Ann Robinson
5 children, William II, Abigail, Sarah, Richard, Tirzah
WilliamII m. Martha Minter
9 children, James, John, Terrisse., Absalom, Elisha,Madison, William, Jefferson, Loryhami
Absolom Sherer m. Rainey Kirkpatrick
Rainey was his 2nd wife. Altogether there were11 children, John, William, samuel, Joseph, Alabama, Thomas, Enoree, Sarah, William, Terahi, Charles
Thomas Sherer m. Elizabeth Rogers, they had 6 children, Roscoe, Sam, alice, Maude, Pearl & Robert.
The Sherers I listed lived in Bullock, S C until Absalom migrated to Jasper, Walker county, Alabama.
SECOND LINE------JASPER, ALABAMA
