Biography of William C. Sherman
Madison County, NY Biographies





Sherman, William C., who died in Cazenovia, September 25, 1898, in the seventieth year of his age, was one of the prominent citizens of that village, and a man well known and respected throughout the whole county. He was born December 15, 1828, in a house but a few rods from the one where he died, spending the early and later days of his life on the same farm. Mr. Sherman was typical of the solid, substantial, intelligent farming community in which he lived. He was conscientious to the last degree, a good business man, and possessed of unerring good judgment and executive ability. For twenty four years he served his town in some office within the gift of the people. For eight successive years he was supervisor and during all that time he enjoyed to the fullest extent the confidence of his townsmen and the esteem of his fellow members of the board. It was a matter of sincere regret when on account of impaired health he declined to serve the town longer. There was no resident of the town of Cazenovia who had more friends, or who was more highly and universally esteemed than Mr. Sherman. He lived his entire life in the community and no one can point to a single act not compatible with the life of a Christian man. In 1860 Mr. Sherman married Miss Maria Goodrich, who survives him.
