James Sherman was born 1809 and died 1891.

The assumpton or theory is that his parents were James Sherman and Hannah Hoag and that young James between 1835 and 1840 came to the coummuntiy of Newport in Jackson Township north of Olin in Jones County to begin a Ferry service across the Wasipinicon River. He later moved to Langworthy south of Monticello and began farming. His grave has never been found. Although it is suspected to be near the location where the trading post was built on the Cliff Miller farm.

James had a brother Joshua Sherman that lived in Rome Township north of Morley about two miles in Jones County, and built a trading post.
