About Joan Grace Sherman

Joan - Called "loving sister Sherman" in 1643 will of her husband's half-brother Samuel SHERMAN. According to "Was Tobias Makin an Ancestor of the New England Shermans?", by Myrtle Stevens Hyde and Douglas Richardson, The American Genealogist 61:79-82 (July/Oct 1985), Joan was not the daughter of Tobias MAKIN, whose daughter Joan MAKIN married Richard STONE as her only husband. The 1610 will of Tobias MAKIN names Edmund SHERMAN and his son Richard SHERMAN. It is possible that Grace MAKIN, daughter of Tobias MAKIN, married an Edmund SHERMAN, but he has not been specifically identified.
