Jeremiah Sherman & Margaret Sprenkle
Posted by: Margaret Sopp (ID *****2425) Date: April 28, 2004 at 11:41:56

Looking for information about the wife (or wives) of Jeremiah Sherman. He was born c. 1805, PA. At the time of the 1850 census, he was enumerated in Carroll Co., MD, but every other census year (1860-1880) he was enumerated in Adams Co., PA.

Although his wife's age is consistent on each census year, her name varies:

1850 = Rebecca
1860 = Sarah
1870 = Maggie
1880 = Rebecca

There is an obituary in 1896 (Adams Co.) for the widow of Jeremiah Sherman. Her name is Margaret. The obit mentions that she was the sister of Eli Sprenkle. Her age is consistent with the age of Jeremiah's wife/wives. She was buried at Oxford Cemetery.

Does anyone have any clue as to Jeremiah's wife or wives names?
