HENRY SHERRICK, farmer, P. O. Elida, is a native of Fairfield County, Ohio, born August 25, 1811, son of John
and Mary (Stalter) Sherrick, natives of Pennsylvania, and of German descent, and who came to this county in 1841.
Our subject, who came with his parents to this county, was married, June 4, 1835, to Margaret Stemen, also a native
of Fairfield County, Ohio, daughter of Rev. Henry and Mary (Beery) Stemen, and sister of Samuel Stemen. To this
union have been born eleven children, five of whom are now living: John, Henry, William, Andrew and Mary. Mr. and
Mrs. Sherrick are the only survivors of the eighteen pioneers who organized the society of Mennonites, in Sugar
Creek Township, this county. This denomination first worshiped from house to house, then built a log church, and
a few years later erected a small frame one, and in 1883 a fine large frame church.
