I'm looking for info about Royal Sherman, born March 2, 1818 in Vermont
Census records indicate my g-g grandfather was born in Vermont,mostly in 1818, one says 1819.
I am looking for his birth record so I can identify his parents and also possible siblings.
He ended up in Ohio circa middle 1830s and was married to Mariah Curtis in 1839 in Crawford Co., Ohio.
I have queried the state archives in Vermont but they could not find anything in their files.
Another Sherman (Almon) lived in the same county in Ohio as Royal early on (1850 census) and
raised a family farther south in Bellefountaine, Ohio, his census info indicates he was from Waterbury ,Vermont.
But I have not verified that he was related. Maybe the whole family migrated west, New York, Pennsylvania, then Ohio?
He stayed in Ohio, passed on January 8, 1901, and served with the Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War, and
I am directly related through his youngest son Robert (1858-1940).
Thank you for your consideration! Respectfully, Michael Sherman
