JOHN McSHERRY married SARAH CREATH (b. 1809) –moved to TX from Brownsville, Illinois in 1829. They had one son, sometimes called “John,” But a later census records show that his name of “JOSEPH LEWIS.” A couple of stories said that John McSherry was attacked, killed and scalped by an Indian in 1832 and that his son as a toddler at that time. A later census shows that Joseph Lewis McSherry was born in 1833, after his father’s death. – So, his date of birth is not clear, though it appears that it was some time between 1831 and 1833.--SARAH CREATH McSHERRY HIBBINS STINNETT HOWARD died 03-28-1870 and is buried in Bosque County, Texas.
