In Reply to: Sherman Family/Humphrey by Candie Sherman of 950

Jason Allen Sherman may have originally been named Jacob Allen Sherman for two of his father's brothers. He usually went by Allen anyway. Born 22Feb1859 Lyndon, NY - 23Sep1948, bur. Belvedere Cemetery, Belvedere, IL. He married 20Jan1878 Mary Ann Johnson of Ellicottville, NY (1855-1926), dau. of Stephen and Achsah Eunice Beals Johnson. Their son Arthur M. Sherman (26Sep1879 Allegany, NY-30Nov1965) married but had no children. Their second son Henry b. 1881 died in infancy. They had a foster daughter Bessie (19Oct1883 in Sweden -17Feb1967). Allen lived in earlier life in Ariella, Commanche County, KS, but afterwards in Kingston and Belvedere, IL.

(Stephen) Edward Sherman b.28Aug1866 Lyndon, NY, I have no death date for him. He was still living in 1948. His first wife was Helen _____ (1854-94)bur. in Sugartown Baptist Cemetery in Humphrey, NY, by whom he had no children. He m. 2ndly Julia A. Wing (1869-1957, bur. Allegany Protestant Cemetery, Allegany, NY) dau. of Asa Sylvester and Catherine Conhiser Wing. They seem to have lived in Olean, NY, but I know nothing more about this couple.

Milton Luland Sherman (9July1867 Lyndon, NY-4Jan1964 in either Tidioute PA or Arcade NY)bur. Mt. Prospect Cemetery, Franklinville, NY. He married 1stly 1887 Estelle Olive Davis (1869-1920) of Sugartown, NY. He married 2ndly 1923 Effie L. Thompson Vance d.26March1961, without further issue. His children by his first marriage were:Luland D. Sherman (1891-Dec1973) of Sandusky and Arcade, NY; Emmeretta Sherman Johns (Sept1894-1March1951) of Franklinville, NY; and M. Ruth Sherman Williams b. May 1900, of Tidioute, PA. Milton lived in Yorkshire, NY early in life.

Jason and Mary Case Sherman moved from Lyndon to Sugartown, Town of Humphrey,Cattaraugus County, NY in the late 1860s, where Jason died 26March1886. I do not know where Jason and Mary are buried nor when Mary died, only that she was still living in 1892.
