Posted by: TAMARA SANFORD (ID *****4342) Date: February 16, 2005 at 09:48:52
  of 974

I am seeking any and all information on anyone related to or connected to ANY of the following individuals:
Edward L. Sherman, Chief Blackhawk of the Golden Hill Paugusset Indian Tribe. (Edward L. Sherman is 2nd Great Grandfather to my children through 'wife' Eva Hungerford.)
Wife of Edward ~ Eva Hungerford Sherman Hubbard Sweeney.
Daughter of Edward & Eva ~ Anna Hubbard Cornell born Mary Louise Hungerford.

Information I have is as follows:

Edward Lewis Sherman b. 26 May 1888 Bridgeport, CT d. 26 Feb 1974 Trumbell, CT
wife 1. Eva Hungerford - 1906 according to Golden Hill records
wife 2. Edna Bonds - date of marriage unknown
wife 3. Evelyn or Emma Cundiff approximately 1946

Edward L. Sherman was the son of George William Sherman b. 27 Feb 1861 d. 28 Dec 1938 and Harriet Curtis who were married about 1887. Harriet died 27 Nov 1904. (Note: other child was daughter, Ethel a.k.a. Chieftess Rising Star who had a son Aurelius H. Piper a.k.a. Chief Big Eagle whose son Aurelius H. Piper, Jr is present day Chief Quiet Hawk of the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe.)

George William Sherman was the son of William Sherman b. 7 May 1825 d. 18 May 1886 and Nancy Hopkins (Pequot Indian) married May 1853. Nancy was born 21 Oct 1832 and d. 7 Feb 1903.

William Sherman was the son of Tom Sherman, no other information known.

*All information given is from Golden Hill.*

More information on these Sherman's can be found:


I am also searching for the parents and any family of Eva J. A. Hungerford, my children's 2nd Great Grandmother ~ paternal side. Other known name Eva J. Ann Hungerford. She was born 1 Mar 1885, Bridgeport, CT, Fairfield County. Died 13 Sept 1975, Fairfield, CT, Fairfield County.

She had 3 children prior to first marriage - twins boys Edwin & Earnest. Also, a daughter birthname of Mary Louise Hungerford born 1909 (who is Great Grandmother to my children) who changed her name unofficially to Anna Hubbard . Anna married Frank Cornell. According to CT death index Anna's information was : Mary CORNELL born 16 Sep 1909. Died 13 Jan 1998, Bridgeport, CT.

Eva Hungerford's 2nd husband was James R. Hubbard, a widower, who she had 2 daughters, Evelyn (Evalina) and Dorothy Hubbard. She also married at time of death to 3rd husband Edward C. Sweeney.
