Correction on the original message.William's middle name is Henry. he was born in Phila. PA Dec 1854, he married Sarah MacFarland, b. July 1854, in PA. they married in 1880, they had 2 sons, 1)Walter (middle name probably William, as he went by Will.) he was b. Feb 1881.Henry Sherman (changed his name to Harry) b. May 5, 1883. Both boys in 1900 were employed making cigars. William, the father was a painter. Both his parents were from PA.Sarah's mother's name was Mary E. last name not sure but think it was Donegal or Donagel, she was born in Ireland, June 1822, and came to the US in 1840. She shows as a widow and living with her daughter Sarah on the 1900 census. William,s father,s name was Sherman, mother unknown.I am looking for any other info as to William's parents or Sarah MacFarland's father.
