I purchased the subject undated RPPC (Real Photo Postcard) (not postally used) depicting three men who resemble each other. It is identified on the back (L. = left, C. = center, R. = right):
"L. George Sharrow
C. William Sharrow
R. Elijah Sharrow"
These names appear in public member trees posted on ancestry.com. Three brthers by these names are listed in the 1880 Census data for Hardin Township, Pike Co., IL. William Sharrow, born about 1848 in OH, Elijah Sharrow, born about 1865 in IL, and George Sharrow, born about 1867 in IL, were sons of Thomas Sharrow, born about 1825 in OH, died 1899 in Atlas Township, Pike Co., IL, and Mary Ann Lucas, born about 1827 in OH, died 1875 in Pike Co., IL. Another possibility, according to a 27 Mar 1999 GenForum posting titled "Re: Sharrow/Sherow/Sherer UPDATE," is that these three individuals are sons of John Shearo, born about 1827 in OH, and Harriet Lucas, namely William T. Sharrow born 9 Jun 1856 in OH; George Sharrow, born 30 Jan 1863 in OH; and Elijah Calvin Sharrow, born 15 Oct 1865 in OH. I suspect that the enumerator for the aforementioned 1880 Census misstated the relationship of certain persons to the head of the household, and that George and Elijah were newphews of Thomas, not his sons. According to a note attached to one public member tree, Mary Ann Lucas married Thomas Sherow on 12 Jun 1847 in Ross Co., OH. Her sister, Harriet Lucas, married John Sherer on 3 Nov 1853 in Ross Co., OH. Thomas and John were brothers. Both families moved to Pike Co., IL around 1865. After John and Mary Ann died, Thomas and Harriet married on 19 Apr 1875 in Pike Co., IL.
