Looking for any info on Ira Sherman born about 1805 in NY. May have been travelling with the Mormons. I was told he died in Douglas Cnty, Ne. Possibly around 1850-1860. He was married to Phebe Wilder also born about 1805 in NY.

Ira Sherman is found on the 1850 Census living in Iowa where his son James was born and he is also on the 1851 Iowa State Census. By 1860, Phebe and three of the children are living in Richardson County, Nebraska.

Four of the Sherman children were born in Ohio. There are three Ira Shermans living in Ohio on the 1840 Census. Based on the ages of the household members, this family was living in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Thank you both for the information, I also found the family on the Iowa State Census in 1851, still in Pottawattamie County. The website is something new to me, just fascinating! After that, Ira seems to be gone and I have been able to find nothing regarding his birth. Thank you for your assistance.

The Ira (Sedgwick) Sherman you're discussing here is my 4th great grandfather. Are you related?
