Frances Sherwood, called Fannie, was the first of three daughters born to Daniel Sherwood III (1749-1838) and his second wife Rachel Layton (c.1774-1849). She may have been named for his first wife, Frances Linthicum.

Fannie married Rev. R. Brantley York (1805-1891) on 31 Jan. 1828, and they had two children, Rachel York, and an infant son who did not live.

From Rev. York's autobiography: "I here record, by way of parenthesis, my first marriage. On the 31st of January, 1828, I was united in holy matrimony, by Rev. John Coe, to Miss Fannie Sherwood, daughter of Daniel and Rachel Sherwood, of Guilford County, N. C. At the time of my marriage I was twenty-three years and twenty-seven days old, and my wife nearly nineteen. We lived pleasantly together for nearly six years; then death severed the union, and she now lies beside her infant son in the graveyard of Pleasant Garden Church."
