Sherman (and Shearman) Family history

Sherman (and Shearman) Family history

~ The Chart below shows the lines of direct descendancy / ascendancy for Donald Clayton (and a great many others) starting with the common thread that leads to (or from) William Tucumseh Sherman, General in the United States Army during the United States Civil War / War of Succession.

The information lists the Marriage Date, followed by the full name for each couple.  The couples children are not listed, but may be contained in the information linked.

The information in green is based on the assumption that each couple has 3 children and that each such child becomes married (only once).  The assumptions don’t take into consideration the range of both larger and smaller families, nor of the numerous unmarried “relatives” that there are.  My math might be faulty and is only presented to make a certain point (or points) about “ancestors” and what is really at hand in the study of genealogy or “family history”.
