Birth: 1838
Ohio, USA

Daughter of Joel Burnett Sherman & Jane Elizabeth (Lusk) Sherman
Jane was the first wife of Joshua E Durham. From that union were the following issues:

1. Burnett Senter Durham
Born 1863 CA
Died after 1896 in Contra Costa County, probably Pacheco as he was a resident of that place the year he died.

He may be buried in Pacheco Cemetery or here but I have no proof of either.

5. Lee "Levi" B

I remember the day I discovered your final resting place and how glad I was to know where you were laid to rest. I only wish I knew more about your life.
