The NOBLE'S & SHERMAN'S of the GREAT STATE of TEXAS Updated September 6, 2005
About Our Family Research
I began research in 1999 when I got my first computer, starting with my 2 great-grandfather, Byrom Bears Sherman. I then learned that they were Early Pioneers of Williamson County, Texas. From here I started searching the records and walking through the cemeteries for data that would lead me all the way back to my 4th ggf who was Moses Sherman, that was born in MA., 1769. I have also had fellow family researchers that have helped me also. And for this I am very greatful. Without their help I would still be at the starting gate. It was very exciting to always find that there were distant family from this line that was still out there.I also found in the old Williamson County courthouse pictures of Byrom Bears Sherman and wife Mary Jane Pipen, as having been early settlers in this county. My other side is the Noble line. This took me all the way to Virginia to where William Noble was born. I followed the line from there to Kentucky where my 3rd ggf, Thomas Henry Noble was born. It moved from there to Arkansas and finally to Texas, where they settled in Burnet County, Tx., and from there to Williamson County, Tx. The Georgetown, Leander and Round Rock, Tx., areas.
