  • Notes 
    • Posted to Sackett mail list on 3 May 2016:

      A couple of days ago, I received the following comment from Michelle Roetheli on Sackett-tree.org:

      "HI! I've been tracking down the ancestry for a relative for several years, and you have her on here! She is a descendant of Mary Sackett (1742-1817), her name is Angeline Cordelia (1853-1933). What I'm looking for is documentation to prove her parentage. Does someone here have that? Her death certificate lists William Sherman and no mother; I can find nothing that says Andrew Sherman is her father except people's trees, with no sources. Would love to find some evidence to back up the claim that Andrew is his father!"

      Turning to the database, the person in question is identified as Angelina Cordelia Sherman ( http://sackett-tree.org/getperson.php?personID=I36116&tree=1 ), with Andrew and Elizabeth [Rich] Sherman identified as adopted parents. As noted in Thurmon's notes on the 1860 census, Angeline "Austin" was living with Noah and Angeline [Sherman] Austin in the 1860 census, while Caroline and Jacob [surname looks like Varp but is unclear] were living with the Andrew and Elizabeth [Rich] Sherman next door. By 1870, Angeline, Jacob, and Elmyra Crop (or Cross) are living with Henry and Carrie Sherman. So there clearly were clues that Angeline might not have been a Sherman at birth (Elizabeth Rich would only have been about 14 years old when Angeline was born]. Thus, Thurmon flagged her as adopted. I searched Ancestry.com and found someone had connected Andrew Sherman and Lucinda Smith as Angeline's parents. A further search found a record of an Andrew Sherman marrying Lucinda Cross on 9 Nov 1851 in Mason County, Illinois. However, the record was so limited that I could not be certain whether this Andrew Sherman was the same one as who married Elizabeth Rich. Giving up for a bit, I shifted to researching Andrew's sister, Sarah Sherman. Some researchers suggested that she married Thomas Cook. The 1910 census for Thomas and Sarah Cook confirmed the marriage as Angeline [Sherman] Austin was listed in the home as Thomas's sister-in-law. Next, exploring their children, it appeared that Ozro C. Cook married one Mary E. Haley, whose parents were identified as James Haley and Mina Sherman on Mary's marriage record. Eventually, I concluded that Mina was Angelina Cordelia Sherman. In addition, a 1920 census record for James and Angelina Haley found brother-in-law Jacob Cross living with them. Thurmon next found Jacob's birth and death records indicating that his parents were Benjamin Cross and Lucinda Smith, then he found the 1850 census showing Benjamin, Lucinda, Caroline, and Jacob Cross living in Springfield, Illinois. So, It now appears that Andrew Sherman married Lucinda Smith Cross in 1851, probably after the death of Benjamin Cross, and that Andrew and Lucinda are the parents of Angeline Cordelia Sherman, b. 1853. Jacob and Caroline/Elmyra Cross are Angeline Cordelia Sherman's half-siblings. In my experience, it was not all that unusual for a widowed parent to farm children out to relatives, then to remarry and not take those children back, especially if several years passed before remarrying or if the new spouse was only a few years older than the first set of children. This appears to be what happened to Angeline Cordelia and her two Cross half-siblings. The evidence is circumstantial, but the pieces fit reasonably well. This example shows the benefit of careful collaborative research. Maybe someday someone will locate a confirming birth record for Angeline Cordelia. -- Ted Smith
