I, too am looking for Sherer family members who probably came from Iowa to California. My great, great grandmother was Katie or Kate Sherer who married John Craig in 1878 somewhere in California and eventually setttled in Northern CA in Modoc county. From Modoc county cemetary records I have found an Alice Frances Sherer (1890-1965), a Dillon Sherer (1843-1916), Ella Sherer (1851-1917), Ralph Craig Sherer (1878-1946) and a Thomas Lewis or Louis Shearer or Sherer(b. 1877 in Iowa). I am trying to find the parents of Katie Sherer--do you think we are looking for the same Sherer family?
