(Cousin) ImmigrationApril 1634According to the Sherman Genealogy source, John immigrated to New England with the family of his father's cousin Edmund Sherman, sailing from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, in the ship Elizabeth during " the last of April 1634". Their daughter Hester and her husband Andrew Ward had immigrated with their children the previous year. Only the Sherman Genealogy source reported a name of the Sherman's ship and a date of the family's embarkation and immigration to New England. A John Sherman, age 20, is the only passenger with a Sherman surname who appears on the ship Elizabeth's April 1634 passenger list. Whether he was Edmund and Grace's son John or Edmund's cousin John, or another John Sherman altogether is not known. The Sherman Genealogy also stated, incorrectly, that because Edmund's wife was not mentioned it was therefore probable she had died at Dedham, England before 1634 and that the couple's oldest child Edmund, who was 34 years of age in 1634, had immigrated with the family. Additional research showed us that son Edmund remained in England, and his mother Grace, who was alive, immigrated. All of the passengers listed who signed an oath of allegiance in preparation for their immigration signed at Ipswich, County Suffolk , which is also the embarkation place noted in the Sherman Genealogy source.2,3,4,5,6
Marriage*He married Martha Palmer, daughter of William Palmer.1,7
Death*25 January 1690/91He died on 25 January 1690/91 in Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), at age 78.1

Baptism4 January 1613/14 and was baptized on 4 January 1613/14 in Dedham.3
Education*John was educated at Immanuel College, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England. Being a Puritan like his father, however, he realized he couldn't conform to the requirements of the Established Church and refused to graduate.4,2
(Son) ReligionAlthough his father had sent him to Immanuel College in Cambridge for his religious training, his father was a Puritan. He finally felt so persecuted by the established Church of England that he left everything and fled with his family and some townsmen to New England, where he could worship according to the dictates of his conscience.2
(Son) ImmigrationApril 1634According to the Sherman Genealogy source, John sailed with his parents and siblings from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, in the ship Elizabeth during " the last of April 1634" for New England. Their daughter Hester and her husband Andrew Ward had immigrated with their children the previous year. Only the Sherman Genealogy source reported a name of the Sherman's ship and a date of the family's embarkation and immigration to New England. A John Sherman, age 20, is the only passenger with a Sherman surname who appears on the ship Elizabeth's April 1634 passenger list.

Additional research showed us that son Edmund remained in England, and his mother Grace, who was alive, immigrated. All of the passengers listed who signed an oath of allegiance in preparation for their immigration signed at Ipswich, County Suffolk , which is also the embarkation place noted in the Sherman Genealogy source.2,5,6,7,8
Residence*June 1634The family arrived at Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), in June 1634 where, "under a tree," John preached his first sermon as an assistant to the pastor, Mr. George Phillips. John's sister Hester and her husband Andrew Ward had immigrated and settled in Watertown the previous year.4,2
Relocation*29 May 1635When John was dismissed with others from the church at Watertown on 29 May 1635 to go and form a new church in Wethersfield, New Haven Colony, Connecticut, his parents and many others in their extended family also made the move.4,2,9
Marriage*He married first Mary Gibbs. They probably married in New Haven Colony, Connecticut.10,11,12
Occupation*8 November 1640He remained in Wethersfield until 7 May 1640, and was next called to the church at Milford, New Haven Colony, where he was installed on 8 November 1640. The General Court of New Haven Colony, on 24 November 1640, designated him as one of five men chosen by it to be Magistrates of the Colony.4
(Husband) Death8 September 1644John became a widower when Mary (Gibbs) Sherman died on 8 September 1644.4,3
Marriage*He married second Mary Launce, daughter of John Launce and Susan Darcy, probably in Milford, New Haven County, Connecticut.1,4,13
Occupation8 November 1647He was dismissed from the church at Milford on 8 November 1647 and was called back to his original New England church at Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). The Reverend Mr. George Phillips had died in 1644, and John became Watertown's third pastor. He was admitted Freeman of that town on 19 May 1669.4

Father*Edmund Sherman1 b. s 1572, d. bt 29 Oct 1640 - May 1641
Mother*Grace Makin1 b. s 1578
Baptism*12 July 1618Samuel Sherman was baptized on 12 July 1618 at Dedham, Essex County, England.1,2,3
(Son) ReligionAlthough Samuel's father had sent his brother John to Immanuel College in Cambridge for his religious training, his father was a Puritan. He finally felt so persecuted by the established Church of England that he left everything and fled with his family and some townsmen to New England, where he could worship according to the dictates of his conscience.1
(Son) ImmigrationApril 1634According to the Sherman Genealogy source, Samuel sailed with his parents and siblings from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, in the ship Elizabeth during " the last of April 1634" for New England. Their daughter Hester and her husband Andrew Ward had immigrated with their children the previous year. Only the Sherman Genealogy source reported a name of the Sherman's ship and a date of the family's embarkation and immigration to New England. A John Sherman, age 20, is the only passenger with a Sherman surname who appears on the ship Elizabeth's April 1634 passenger list. Whether he was Edmund and Grace's son John or Edmund's cousin John, or another John Sherman altogether is not known. The Sherman Genealogy also stated, incorrectly, that because Edmund's wife was not mentioned it was therefore probable she had died at Dedham, England before 1634 and that the couple's oldest child Edmund, who was 34 years of age in 1634, had immigrated with the family. Additional research showed us that son Edmund remained in England, and his mother Grace, who was alive, immigrated. All of the passengers listed who signed an oath of allegiance in preparation for their immigration signed at Ipswich, County Suffolk , which is also the embarkation place noted in the Sherman Genealogy source.1,4,5,6,7
(Son) ResidenceJune 1634The family arrived at Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), in June 1634 where, "under a tree," Samuel's brother John preached his first sermon as an assistant to the pastor.8,1
(Son) Relocation29 May 1635When his brother John was dismissed with others from the church at Watertown on 29 May 1635 to go and form a new church in Wethersfield, New Haven Colony, Connecticut, Samuel and his parents and siblings went with him.8,1,9
Marriage*circa 1640He married Sarah Mitchell, daughter of Matthew Mitchell, circa 1640.3
Death*5 April 1700He died on 5 April 1700 in Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, at age 81.3

(Son) Residence1847About the year of 1847, Clarence Vinton Shove moved with his parents to Pope Creek, Knox County, Illinois, where his father Samuel continued to work a small piece of land and kept a stock of goods, enjoying the variety to be found in running a country store. Their two youngest children were with them in Pope Creek, and Elizabeth's daughter, Elizabeth Brown, age 21, had married Lucien Conger in 1845 and lived in Galesburg. Samuel's daughter, Nancy, had died in 1844 and his daughter, Hannah, had possibly already married Gershom Redway before her family moved from Providence. The whereabouts of the four older boys, all old enough to be on their own, William Shove at age 33, Josiah Shove at 23, James Brown, also 23 and George Brown at 19, remains a mystery to this researcher. William and Josiah Shove were still living in 1874, but James and George Brown have not yet been found.2

George and Eleanor had four young sons also living with them in the household. Cassius was 7, Harold 5, Frank 4, and Lucien 2. The next family enumerated on the census was the household of James Brown, Clarence's and George's older brother, and members of Eleanor's kenyon family also lived nearby.4

Hannah Baxter Shove

b. 1818
Father*Samuel Shove1 b. 2 Feb 1789, d. 11 Dec 1874
Mother*Lydia Buffum1 b. 17 Oct 1787, d. 8 Sep 1833
Birth*1818Hannah Baxter Shove was born in 1818 in Woonsocket, Providence County, Rhode Island.2
Birth1819Hannah Baxter Shove was born in 1819.
(Daughter) Residencebetween 1820 and 1825About the year 1820, Samuel Shove and Lydia (Buffum) Shove purchased what, in 1874, had become known as the "Ephraim Coe farm" in Woonsocket, Providence County, Rhode Island. Hannah Baxter Shove lived there with her parents until 1825 when they moved to Providence.2
(Daughter) Residencebetween 1825 and 1840Hannah Baxter Shove moved with her parents in between 1825 and 1840 to Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island, where the family lived for the next sixteen years. Where Lydia died in 1835 and the rest of the family continued to live for the next six years. Most of their sixteen years in Providence, they lived in a double brick house on Benefit Street between College and Waterman streets, and Samuel was a charming host to all who visited, extending his hospitalities largely to visiting members of the Society of Friends and his many business associates. All who came under his roof were welcomed heartily and entertained liberally.

In Providence, Samuel was very active within the community. He was one of the first directors of the Globe Bank, organized in 1831, with William Sprague as President, and John R. Bartlett as cashier, and also for some years was a director in the American Insurance Company.

In politics, Samuel was an active and devoted member of the Whig Party, which was formed in 1832 to oppose the policies of President Andrew Jackson and the Democratic Party. In particular, the Whigs supported the supremacy of Congress over the Executive Branch and favored a program of modernization and economic development.

The Party's name was chosen to echo the American Whigs of the 1770s who fought for independence, and the Whig Party included among its members such national political personalities as Daniel Webster, William Henry Harrison, and their greatest leader, Henry Clay of Kentucky. In addition to Harrison, the Whig Party also counted four war heroes among its ranks, including Generals Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott. Its Illinois leader was Abraham Lincoln.

In its 26-year existence, the Whig Party saw two of its candidates elected President of the United States -- Harrison and Taylor -- and saw both of them die in office. Four months after succeeding Harrison, Whig President John Tyler was expelled from the Party, and Millard Fillmore, Taylor's Vice President, was the last Whig to hold the nation's highest office.

The party was ultimately destroyed by the question of whether to allow the expansion of slavery to the territories. Deep fissures in the membership on this question led the party to run Winfield Scott over its own incumbent President Fillmore in the presidential election of 1852. The Whig Party never elected another President. Its leaders quit politics (as Lincoln did temporarily) or changed parties. By 1856 the Party had ceased operations and the voter base defected in a variety of different directions. Samuel, in Illinois, followed Lincoln, and gave his hearty allegiance to the Republican Party at its first formation. He retained an intelligent interest in, and supported its activities, up to the last moment of his life. He believed strongly in the value of homeland business and "made in the USA" merchandise, and throughout his entire career lost no opportunity to defend that principle whenever and wherever he found the opportunity.

He had a clear head and sound judgment and never failed to give good counsel to all who sought it of him. His son, Josiah, wrote that Samuel Shove "led a very active life mentally and physically, and his ruling aim seemed to be to do whatsoever came to his hand with all his might, deeming all honest work honorable, and only scorning to eat the bread of idleness or of dishonesty."2,3
(Daughter) Census 18301 June 1830Hannah Baxter Shove likely appeared on the 1830 census taken on 1 June 1830 in the household of her father Samuel Shove in East Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island. There were seven members of the household, including one male aged 5-10 (Josiah), one male aged 15-20 (William), one male aged 40-50 (Samuel), one female aged 5-10 (Nancy), one female aged 10-15 (Hannah), one female aged 20-30 (likely a servant) and one female aged 40-50 (Lydia.)4
Marriage*She married Gershom M. Redway.2
Residence*1874Hannah Baxter Shove lived in 1874 at New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut.2
