Lorenzo Sherman household - Licking Co., OH & Jay Co. IN

The Lorenzo SHERMAN household appears in the 1860 census of St. Albans Twp., Licking Co., OH and the 1870 census of Wayne Twp., Jay Co., IN. Lorenzo was my paternal 3rd-great uncle, husband to Sophia Polly MOULTON, daughter of Selah and Lydia (FENNEL) MOULTON. He was the son of Shubael and Phebe (________) SHERMAN.

In the 1860 census, Lorenzo was a 47 year old farmer, born in Vermont, with real estate valued at $2100 and a personal estate valued at $400. Wife Sophia was listed as aged 37 and also born in Vermont. The children listed in the family were : Warren, aged 18, born in Ohio; Sarah, aged 17, born in Ohio; Reuben, aged 15, born in Ohio; Sophia, aged 12, born in Ohio; Emma, aged 10, born in Ohio; Anna, aged 7; born in Ohio; and Celestia, aged 5, born in Ohio.

In the 1870 census, Lorenzo was a 59 year old farmer, born in Vermont, with real estate valued at $4000 and a personal estate valued at $600. Wife Sophia P. was aged 47 and also born in Vermont. The children living with the family were : Sophia, aged 22, born in Ohio; Anna, aged 16, born in Ohio; Celestia, age 15, born in Ohio; and Charles, aged 8, born in Ohio.

The family must have moved to Jay Co., after Charles was born (1862) and more likely after the Civil War, along with other members of the Sherman and Moulton families.
