Huldah (Richmond) Sherman

Huldah Richmond
Wife of
John Sherman
Feb. 15, 1878

Huldah was 28 years old and living with her parents, Elijah & Elizabeth (Fowler) Richmond in Conesus, Livingston Co., New York, in 1850.

From the Will of Elijah Richmond:
I give to my daughter Holda Richmond the land and appurtenances situated thereon known and described as the Patterson Chapin Farm lying and being in the town of Bloomfield Walworth County and State of Wisconsin together with all the household furniture now possessed by me.

The farm known as the Patterson Chapin farm being the south half of the north west quarter twenty four acres off of the North part of the west half of the south west quarter of Section (22) twenty two of the town of Bloomfield containing (104) one hundred and four acres.

Huldah Sherman was living with her sister and brother-in-law (Samantha & Newman Acker) in Walworth Co., Wisconsin in 1860. Per that census, Huldah was married within the last year (1859). John Sherman who was married within the last year was enumerated here in 1860 (Deodat Brewster (see picture here) and family were in the same household as John Sherman). Don't know the significance, if any, of the Brewsters living with John Sherman and his wife, Huldah, not living with him in 1860.

John Sherman may have married 2nd Ella Frances Richards, born in June of 1839 in Ohio. John died in 1899.
