Family of Henry Sherman

Contributed by M Hellam


Site visitor Marcia Hellam provided the family history below back in 2003, in response to a 2002 Faces of Erie County feature Statton-Sturm. It is being posted at this time. Any questions or comments concerning this family history should be sent directly to the contributor.


First email from contributor: "Marjorie was the granddaughter of Rev. Jeremiah Woodhull, born Paterson, NJ, and died Bullskin Twp, Fayette County, PA; and Caroline Sherman Woodhull, born Germany and died Bullskin Twp, Fayette County, PA. They are buried in Green Lick Cemetery, Fayette County, PA. Caroline's father was Henry Sherman of Fairview, Erie County, PA, which could explain why the photo was in Erie County. Her mother was Bertha Woodhull Stratton. Charles and Bertha Stratton died in Pittsburgh, PA. I am not a direct relative, but rather the great-granddaughter of Jeremiah Woodhull's sister, Fanny Woodhull Salterbach Hellam McLaughlin, who was also born Paterson, NJ and died in Monterey, CA."

Second email from contributor: "I am attaching an abbreviated family descendents list for Henry Sherman. The family related to the picture is marked with asterisks (***). You will note that the child's legal name is actually Mabel Marguerite. I assume that "Marjorie" was her nickname. I received an e-mail telling me that Henry, his wife, one daughter, a son-in-law, and one granddaughter are buried in the Fairview Cemetery, Erie County, PA and noted this one the attached list. The information I sent on the family you list under the picture has one change from what I wrote. I forgot that Bertha had moved to Indiana after her husband's death and died there, not in Erie County."
