Curiosity

Aha. After I wrote about Sherman Malcolm below, I decided I would check the US Census for his name and perhaps find out other information. Gee, I wish Mother were alive  because I could call and tell her Sherman was born in Edgar, Illinois in March of 1865 and Sara was not his first wife. He married a lady named Alice in 1893 and she died in 1903 in Frankfort, Indiana. I don’t know if Grandma knew this. I feel like I need to go to the cemetery and exclaim, “Mother, you are not going to believe this!”

His full name was Peter Sherman Malcolm and his father was John Riggs Malcolm and his mother Mary Elizabeth O’Hair. Sherman was named after his grandfather and his father, John, was named after his grandfather.

He showed up on three public family trees, one of which was a Fowler tree. Grandma’s mother was a Fowler.

See where curiosity can take you.
