The Ancestry of Samuel Sterling Sherman and Mary Ware AllenWe’re excited to bring you this highly anticipated book. It tells the stories of nine generations of former California Genealogical Society’s president Frederick “Rick” S. Sherman’s family as they move from New England and Kentucky westward to California.

Whether you love history, individual family stories, learning new research tips, or all three, we think this book has something to offer you. Readers, genealogists or not, will be moved by getting to know these diverse human beings.

The California Genealogical Society has published Mr. Sherman’s incredible research effort as a fitting tribute to a man who gave to the society in so many ways as President, Chief Researcher, and Benefactor. His efforts were suddenly cut short by his death in 2008.

Biographical sketches of the ancestors of Frederick S. Sherman include: Sterling Sherman (1794-1865) and Jane Noble (1788-1852), William Dewey (1793-1880) and Hannah Bond (1794-1827), John J. Hardin (1810-1847) and Sarah Ellen Smith (1811-1874), John J. Jacob (1819-1873) and Evelyn Johnson (1828-1901), Joseph Allen (1790-1873) and Lucy Clark Ware (1791-1866), William Gordon Weld (1775-1825) and Hannah Minot (1780-1860), Benjamin Franklin Copeland (1798-1863) and Julia Fellows Ruggles (1803-1867), Benjamin Kent (1794-1859) and Eleanor Bradford (1802-1885), and many more.
