Dear Melanie: trying to reach you personally to find out more about Frederick McSherry's descendants... possibly Frederick Thomas or Thomas Frederick. I am trying to trace my father's mother's family...Father's name: William James McSherry (birth surname could have been Smith, for his biological father, Max Smith) b.1918, Toronto, Canada or
Cleveland, Ohio. His mother's name: Nell/Ellen/Mary Ellen
McSherry (maiden name). We believe her brother was Thomas Frederick or Frederick Thomas McSherry of Cleveland, Ohio.
Nell McSherry died 1918/1919 when my father was an infant, during the Great Influenza Epidemic. We are not sure if Thomas/Frederick the brother formally adopted my father, William, and his older brother, also named Frederick Thomas. They grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. My maiden name is McSherry so there must have been some kind of legal name change or adoption records??? Thank you so much for any help you can offer...Hi to all McSherry's out there...amazing so many!!! I just checked Ellis Island Passenger website for records and found about 200 entries for McSherry! Thanks, again....e-mail me thru this forum.
