In Reply to: SHEARMAN-SHERMAN OF GREENE CO. by Barbara Crane Shearman of 138

This is an old post and I know its a shot in the dark that you will even receive this message, but I felt it necessary to respond to this post. My husband and I recently "stumbled" on some property to with six grave stones and 1 smaller headstone (that of a child) off of rt33 off Amicus Rd in Greene County. The names on the headstones are as follows: William Shearman, Eliza Shearman, Sallie Shearman, George W Shearman (dies at the age of 95!!), and the rest are just initials. I cannot recall the dates, but they are all early 1800's thru early 1900's. The last one dying in 1927 at the age of 89. There is also a small lamb topped headstone that reads children of "Chapman"....I cant recall the exact initals at this moment, but I could easily get this info for you if you needed it. This lamb topped stone contains 3 separate years of death indicating that 3 children reside here. If you ever get this message and need additional info I could supply that to you. Thanks!
