He lived for quite a while in Lincoln Co., St. Catherine/St. David, Onterio, Canada. He was Westleyan Methodist. He invented the McSherry Plough, and had a plough factory called the "ST DAVID'S PLOUGH FACTORY" in about 1861. His wife Rebecca Sebey, was from NY and they had boys, JOHN, WILLIAM, GEORGE, HENRY, and daughters also. Their first child, Sarah McSherry was born in Niagra, Lincoln, Onterio, Canada abt. 1849. They were Blacksmiths and moved east, ending up around Port Stanley or Dunwick Twp., Elgin Co., Onterio, Canada, in about 1871. There I lost the family of boys, although I know William came to Michigan and became a Justice of the Peace. I know James' wife Rebecca, died in childbirth, or shortly thereafter, and I would like to know what happened to James McSherry. Does anyone know where theMCSHERRY'S came from in Ireland, or any ship passenger list which includes a James McSherry between 1824-1849. I am also very interested in finding the marriage of James McSherry and his wife, Rebecca Sebey. If you know anyone who can help me, I would love to hear from them. Thankyou for your time, and I would be happy to help you with anything.
