Charles and Faith (Sherry) Brenton

Charles and Faith (Sherry) Brenton

Surnames: Brenton, Sherry, Bacon, Burton
My grandfather's sister, Faith Sherry, married a Charles Brenton. I believe they lived in St. Louis, MO. Their children included a Charles and a Leticia, who died as a very young girl, probably in the 1920s. I'd love to know more about this branch of my family.

Faith Sherry was the daugher of Josiah Earl Sherry, born West Point, Indiana, and Leticia Rowena Burton, born Washington, IL. She had two sisters, Leva, who married Cary Harrison Bacon, and Susan Sherry, who never married, and my grandfather, Earl Courtwright Sherry, who died in 1948. They all lived in St. Louis, MO

I was just in Tippencanoe County IN and noticed a Sherry Cemetery. I have not been there but if you will just put West Point Indiana in you will find it on one of the search results. I have gone to page five. Hope you find what you are looking for.

Hello, I am reading your post and my mother Loyce Brenton Pettigrew is related to your family. Her grandfather was Dennis Hawkins Brenton, brother to your grandfather Thomas Jefferson Brenton. I believe that would make you cousins. She is in the Central MO area. I would love to correspond with you. My mother is 80 yrs old and I am trying to put together her family tree. Would love to hear from you.
