About Anne Sherman

Sherman Genealogy My grandmother, Anne Pellatte died in 1584 and left young children who were no doubt raised by my grandfather Edmund Shermans second wife, Anne Clere. Anne Clere died and left small children also; I wonder who raised them as my grandfather Edmund died in 1601; His second Wife Anne Clere died in 1609 and left Samuel, who was but eight years old.
