After much research, Mark, was unable to find anything in cemetery records on Sherman. However, we do now have the obit, that states he was buried in Chestnut Hill Cemetery. Plus, the stone says he is there. Some records were destroyed in a flood years ago. Mark has done a wonderful job researching and adding many missing records.
