I'm so sorry for not responding sooner! I apparently never got the notice in my email that someone had followed up on my message to the James Sherman thread.
Here's what I have on James Sherman and Litha Lillian:
According to “kcfin1,” she is the daughter of John Louis and Louisa Elizabeth (Unknown) Daughety. That means that she’s a descendant of Richard, of Owen III’s “first family,” and James Sherman is the descendant of Owen IV, of the “first family.” So they are some kind of cousins.
I am working on the last chapter of my book now--in between teaching 4-5 English classes every semester. That would be the "second family" who left NC in about 1797 and went to KY. That's my part of the family.
I would absolutely LOVE to have any information that you can share with me on either James's (Sherm's?) or Lillian's lines. Old family stories and old pictures are what will make this book more than just a listing of generations.
My personal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. My mailing address is Donna Hart, 701 N. Idler Lane, Greenville, IL 62246.
I would love to hear from any and all. I'm more than willing to share my own information, if you will share yours.
