George was born in 1855. George Spencer Sherwood was a house-painter and sign-painter. Evidently he was also somewhat of a thinker/inventor, as he applied for a Patent for his "Folding Camp Stool and Walking Stick" (see photo of Patent issued - click on it to enlarge) in February of 1907. The patent was granted in March of 1908, after his death.
George Sherwood Patent #883,674
George was born in Shelbyville, Kentucky and ultimately he and his wife, Belle (Jenkins) Sherwood raised their family of 5 daughters there. They had no sons born to them, thus this branch of the Sherwood surname line ended with George.
George died suddenly of "Heart Trouble" during a stay in a sanitarium In Beuchel Station, Kentucky where he was in treatment for breathing difficulties thought to be Tuberculosis. George Spencer Sherwood was buried in October 1907 shortly after his death and his interment was at Grove Hill Cemetery in Shelbyville, KY. 
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with George by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with George:
