picture for Lewis G Sherman, Mahala Sherman, James Sherman, and siblings appears
to be the one of Mahala and William Peytopn that you posted previously. Could
you re-post the Sherman photo? I am a descendant of Elizabeth "Betsy"

County, Ohio. I would like to exchange info with you.

Lewis and Sarah died leaving 5 children without a home. The kids were kept by various families in the area.
Ves (Sylvester) was the 5th of 6 children.
He moved on to Colorado, Adams County, later to Wyoming and the Black Hills. He was part of the settlement of Cheyenne and Laramie when Wild Bill Hickok & Calamity Jane were about. He was a teamster and 2nd assistant on a wagon train that was attacked by Indians. The train suffered heavy losses but Ves and the train made it through. The wagon train was taking supplies to Ft. Fedderman, WY. Ves, also, worked as a cattle herder in Colorado and Wyoming but finally settled in Torrington, WY.
