I believe Samuel was a blacksmith, and he supposedly went to Waterbury,
VT. I found a Samuel in 1800 census who might be him.
Avery was a blacksmith and so were 2 of his sons. Avery's probable
brother Royal was b in VT ca 1795-6 (according to census).
The only source I've found for children of Samuel is notes of Frank
Dempster Sherman (who d 1916), and he references "MS. Record of Rev DS".
(Might that be the Rev. David Sherman who had article in The American
Genealogist in 1870 regarding SHERMAN family?)
> It appears that the Book may have placed the Family in Rochester where the marriage occurred but as you state no evidence found of children born in Rochester. What was Samuel's profession. was he a roving preacher etc. that may have moved on soon after the marriage.
