Location: New York state
Surnames/tags: Sherman Claghorn Townsend
My Great great grandfather was George Claghorn Sherman. He was born in 1808 or 1809 in New York, possibly in Washington County. Family oral history says that George's father was a shipbuilder on Lake Champlain.
I have hit a brick wall in trying to find out who George's parents were and exactly where he was born. I am guessing that the Claghorn name is perhaps his mother's maiden name, or another family connection. i would really like to be able to trace the Sherman/Claghorn line!
George was married to Elizabeth Townsend, born 1813 in Tyringham, Berkshire, Mass. Their children were: George C. Jr, Jonathan (my great grandfather), Elizabeth (Crocker), Frederick, and Frances. They lived in the Syracuse area of NY, then moved to Rochester, MN about 1856. George was a shoemaker. He died in 1863.
