Aged 59y; typhoid fever. Born in Massachusetts.

We regret to announce the death of David Sherman, Esq., which occurred at his residence, corner of Jackson and Spring streets, yesterday morning at about half-past nine o'clock, after an illness of several weeks. Mr. Sherman was one of the old residents of this place, and is well known to many of our citizens. He was born in Andover, Massachusetts, and came to this state in 1839 and to this city in 1840, and for several years was the superintendent of the New England Hemp Factories in this section of the State. After closing his connections with these establishments, he became connected with the construction of the Illinois Central Railroad, and built the inclined plane at Peru. He afterwards became of the contractors of the Chicago & Alton Railroad. He was an energetic and thorough business man; in his social intercourse a true friend. He withdrew from active business pursuits several years since, living in the enjoyment of a handsome competency, acquired by the exercise of his business talents.

He was 59 years of age, and leaves a wife and daughter to mourn his loss. The funeral will take place on Friday at 10 o'clock. IL State Journal, Springfield, IL, 12-14-1871
