Sherman Edward Dunn

Birth: Jan. 31, 1921
Death: Jul. 4, 1982
Carrollton
Carroll County
Kentucky, USA

Sherman was the son of Jay Charlie & Flossie (Wilson) Dunn. He was never married.

Sherman was a genealogist. He was very interested in the history involved with his ancestors and everyone in the counties near where he lived.

When Sherman was a child, he had polio. His parents didn't know, that is what it was. He developed a hump on his back, after falling one night. It was difficult for him to get around and he had to use a cane. But he managed, he did more than some of us will ever do. He loved his family.

Sherman recorded many cemeteries in several counties (including Henry, Owen, Trimble, Gallatin), however, Carroll County, he recorded half of the county and Kathryn Salyers recorded the rest. Their book is available for sale through the Trimble County Historical Society because the Carroll County Historical Society would not help them.

Sherman was generous, his group sheets for other people's families can be found as far as California, New York or Florida. Our mutual cousin, Margaret, wrote to him and he provided her with census records, cemetery records, as well as personal stories about most of our "Kin". Sherman was a soft hearted person who loved everyone.

He will be sadly missed for those of us who knew him personally or just knew about him.
