Phineas (Phinehas) Sherman
I've been searching for the parents of the above Phineas Sherman. He was born in Rhode Island 9/12/1770 and died 8/25/1855 in Leydon Township, Illinois. He was married to Elizabeth Edic (2nd wife) born 4/1/1784 and died 8/30/1864. I know that these birth and death dates are correct because I have a photo of their tombstone.
I've tried the Rhode Island genealogical society - no info. and Leydon, Ill. There's a lot of information about him moving to New York where he married Elizabeth, and of his family moving to Illinois. I have a lengthy biography written by one of the relatives, but within this document, there was a statement of "I don't remember ever hearing my grandparents names". It figures...lol.
So, if anyone has any "thought" of where else I can search, please let me know.
