"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 58, No 8, p 126, Feb. 24, 1902.
Albert Bowen Sherman, son of Josiah and Sally Berry Sherman, was born in Norway, Herkimer Co., N. Y., Feb. 9, 1834, and died Feb. 8, 1902.
The family moved to Alfred in January, 1837. Albert was the oldest of five children, of whom only one sister, Mrs. James R. Crandall, now survives. Mr. Sherman was married Oct. 17, 1857, to Jemima R. Ennis, of Richmond Switch, R. I. She died April 13, 1890. Two of the three children born to them remain, living in Alfred. He was married Jan. 1, 1891, to Elizabeth Hemphill Beckwith, who survives him.
He was baptized when a young man of about seventeen by Eld. N. V. Hull, and joined the First Alfred church. He was for some time a clerk of the church. He subsequently became a member of a church at Cowanesque, Pa., where he moved. His love for his old home seemed to grow with advancing years. There was no place for him like Alfred. It was his eager desire to be back there to live and to die.
He loved the cause of God. There were regrets; but he went into the eternity with his trust in an unfailing Saviour. He loved Christian people, especially the Seventh-day Baptists, and was deeply interested in the advancement of the cause. The Sabbath Recorder was always a prized visitor to his home, and there was scarcely an attendant at the last Conference who was more absorbed in its sessions than he.
Services were conducted in the First Alfred church Sabbath afternoon by Pastor Randolph, assisted by Principal Saunders. Text Psa. 29: 4. L. C. R.
