Cora Virginia Niles Sherman

Cora was a daughter of (Henry) Sherman Niles and Mary Ann Sullivan who are buried in Windsor Cemetery, Dane County, Wisconsin. She was born 5 May 1860 in Iowa. Very possibly, New Liberty, Scott County, Iowa.

Her grave stone incorrectly says she was born 1880, but she was born in 1860.

She is listed as Virginia Niles in the 1860 Federal Census, Liberty, Scott County, Iowa. Cora Niles is age 9 in the 1870 census, Windsor, Dane County, Wisconsin. She married Henry Eugene Sherman 9 January 1878, Columbus, Columbia County, Wisconsin. In the 1880 census, Cora (age 20) & Henry Sherman (age 25) are living in York, Dane County, Wisconsin. They had several children born 1879 to 1901. In the 1900 census, Rock, Wood County, Cora V. Sherman, is 40 years old, she says she was born May 1860, and has had 8 children, of which 7 are still alive.

When researching Cora Virginia Niles Sherman, be careful not to confuse her father, (Henry) Sherman Niles with her husband, Henry Eugene Sherman.
