Here's two from the Welch lines.

Grandsons of Fountain Lee Henry Welch who was the son of Stephen Edward Welch. Fielding Welch who was the son of William James Welch. John Harvey Welch who was the sone of Stephen Edward Welch.
Dr. William Edd Welch who was the sone of John Riley Welch. Dr James C. Welch who was the son of Richard Harvey Welch; George Welch who was the son of William James Welch.

"All are first cousins and grandsons of Fountain Lee Henry Welch and Margaret Hendricks. This photo was taken in 1915 or -16 on the Old Homestead near Salem, Dent Co., Missouri where Fountain and Margaret lived after leaving Kentucky. Marvin Edward Welch and Vernon Welch identified the men in the photo"

* For a small fee Barbara Mahoney can copy photo's of this line: 3100 Perryman Way Sacramento, CA 95820 1800 (916-456-8987) She is in poor health, so keep it simple. She's the expert on this line. The book mention here has too many errors, All books had good information TOO, SO DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK. We just have to prove them from three sources before you keep them to pass onto your line or family.
Many in this line have this photo. No one has a copyright to it and I don't have the orignal. I do have the book authored by Gloria. I'm going to donate it to Salt Lake for everyone to see use and copy as the rest of their libray materials. I just haven't gotten to S.L. yet. My children will not do this line, they haven't done their own

Note on George Oney Sherman's lines

Shared: From COMENTS; OF Beverly Weilert to myself...
Apr 25, 2011
"Guess I should start by introducing myself…really don’t recall what I had said in my first email. My Sherman line runs: James & Elizabeth (Peyton) Sherman, James & Annie (Scott) Sherman, Vivian (Sherman) & Lewis Heiney…think that makes us ½-2nd cousins one generation removed. ???"
"James Sherman (1828 OH) and Matilda Davis (1829 OH or WVA) were married 15 Aug 1847, Lawrence County, Ohio. Lawrence County, Ohio Marriage Books 1-3, (1819-1843)
Children: George W. Sherman (1848 OH), Elizabeth (1850 OH), Lewis G. (1853 OH), Mahala (1856 MO). Matilda and child died (during child birth) March 1860, Dekalb Co., MO. (1860 Mortality Record.)
James married Elizabeth B. Peyton (g-grandmother) 07 Nov 1860, Dekalb County, MO. I am having a hard time determining the relationship (if any) between my Elizabeth Peyton and William H. Payton, the husband of James’ (1828) sister, Mahala (Sherman) Payton. That is another story and the reason I frequently am side tracked. (Mom said that her grandfather James [1828] had 18 children. I have only been able to account for 15.)
Direct line:
I still haven’t located the burial site of Mary J. Davidson but am corresponding with the Kansas Soldier’s Home and the Ford County Historical Society in hopes of obtaining a date of death and burial. My contacts have not been available due to the Easter Holiday. I will get back with them this coming week. I have Mary’s birth year as 1857, Missouri.

I did find the burial site for George W. Sherman using ”Find-a-Grave”….Mound Grove Cemetery, Independence, MO. Memorial #:41918850. George was born May 1848, Lawrence County, Ohio and died 09 Jan 1927 at Fort Dodge, Ford County, KS. There is a picture of George’s headstone at the Find-a-Grave site. I have posted a picture on my Ancestry Sherman tree or I would be glad to send a copy if you want. In fact, give me your address and I will mail everything that I have.

Thanks for the info regarding George O. Sherman I did have the Draft Card info for George O. but had not found anything pertaining to his death. I haven’t had much luck with obtaining death certificates from Kansas. I understand the need to be cautious; having been a victim of ID theft but Kansas seems to go overboard with restrictions. It is interesting how several of the Sherman siblings resided in Wyandotte County. (Probably kin to this line?)

George Oney Sherman and his first wife, Hannah Evans, had three children. Leona (1898), Elizabeth Ann (1900) and Ammon A. (1905). Children with Sallie Kirkendoll (1888); Oney Elbert (1915), Clarence H. (1919) and Calvin Lee (1925).

Before I ramble on and forget our earlier ancestors….the earliest I have found is Elisha Sherman (?1765 VA – before 1840, OH). Found Elisha and son Jesse (1782-1870) on the Virginia Tax List for 1810 (Orange County). Elisha had one white tithes and Jesse had one white tithes and one horse. Second son (probably other children but these are the only ones that I’ve found), Gordon was born in 1800, VA and died before 1840 in Lawrence County, Ohio. Gordon had three daughters, 2 (names unknown) born 1820, Mahala (1827 Lawrence County, OH) and three sons; Lewis G. 1826 and James 1828 and 1 (name unknown) 1830, Lawrence County, Ohio. To date I have not found names of Elisha or Gordon’s wives.

Jesse married Sarah (Sally) Breeden. Both may live in Lawrence County. Their children; Mary “Polly” (1809-1880, Elizabeth “Betsy” (1810-1830), Sarah “Sally” (1818-1841), Ruth P. (1820) and James A. (1825-1900). Marriages: Mary and Sylvester Crank (15 Mar 1826), Elizabeth and Noah Jenkins (16 Feb 1829), Sarah and Holsey Roil (1834), Ruth and Abner Breeden (11 May 1837), James A. and Nancy Jenkins (18 Apr 1849).

Family line:
Elisha & unknown Sherman, Gordon & unknown Sherman, James & Elizabeth B. (Peyton) Sherman.
Children of James & Elizabeth:Fanny (1861), William (1864), Rose (1865), Frank (1867), Charles (1870), *James (1872-1952), Harry (1874-1919), May “Rosie May” (1876-1962), Lottie (1879), Catherine “Kate” (1882-1938).
Children of *James & Annie (Scott) Sherman (grandparents):
Maude Mae (1898-1903), John William (1903-1984), Opal Hallie Louise (1906-1981), James Lyle (1909-1994), Earl Jefferson (1911-1998), **Vivian Wynona (1912-1999).
**Parents: Vivian Wynona Sherman and Harry Lewis Heiney (1907-2001).
Children of: Beverly June (Heiney) Weilert (1941) and Robert Lewis Heiney (1942)." End of quotes...
