Sherman Bentley was born in Sullivan County, Missouri, on April 22, 1865, being the son of C W H and Margaret J (Black) Bentley, natives of Ohio. The father moved from Ohio to Indiana when young and was there married. Then he went to Missouri, in which place he turned his attention to farming. In 1862, he enlisted in Company E, 42nd Missouri Infantry, and served throughout the entire war, doing the duties of a soldier in a faithful and brave manner. His death occurred in Lincoln County, on July 7, 1888.

Sherman S Bentley resides about seven miles north from Reardan, where he has rented a wheat farm. He owns property in the town of Reardan and also owns land on the Spokane River.

Sherman Bentley was born in Sullivan County, Missouri, on April 10, 1865, being the son of C W H and Margaret J (Black) Bentley, natives of Ohio. The father moved from Ohio to Indiana when young and was there married. Then he went to Missouri, in which place he turned his attention to farming. In 1862, he enlisted in Company E, 42nd Missouri Infantry, and served throughout the entire war, doing the duties of a soldier in a faithful and brave manner. His death occurred in Lincoln County, on July 7, 1888. Our subject received his education in the schools of Missouri and when sixteen, it being 1882, he came with his parents across the plains in a prairie schooner, landing in Walla Walla in the fall. They journeyed thence direct to Lincoln County and settled on a homestead. He labored at home until twenty-two and was then married, Mary E Warren becoming his wife. Mrs Bentley's father was James Warren, one of the earliest pioneers in the Reardan country. To Mr and Mrs Bentley, the following children have been born: Lola E, James M, deceased, Iva M, Cora E, Ralph S, and Ruth E. Fraternally, Mr Bentley is affiliated with the IOOF. He has been closely identified with the interests of Lincoln County in the earliest days and is known as a substantial and enterprising citizen." (History of Big Bend-1904) {Edit: Another son, Lawrence R Bentley was born in 1908.} Sherman S and Mary E Bentley appeared on the 1892 census with two children, L E, a daughter, and J M, a son. The next name on the census was a Warren family, presumably Mrs Bentley's parents and brother, J M Warren, 48, MO; S C, female, 47, VA; C S, male, 27, MO.
