Obituary:

156 Birth notice of Martin Co. lists daughter of Effie Belle Sherfick, no father, no name of child, born on 20 Sep 1906.
Was not listed as survivor of mother in 1957 or brother in 1937. 
SHERFICK, Effie Belle (I401)
 
157 Birth record reads that Thomas George and Oma Wade were the parents of a male child born on this date. However, this is not the date of birth for Thomas A. George, who we do know is their son as well. This child is not mentioned in Oma's obituary and therefore most likely died as either an infant or as a young child. Could also be a mistake by way of deciphering old records. Not all birth records are clear and precise as to who parents actually were. McAtee family has photo of early child Morris/Maurice.

Note from Cyndy:
I have a photo of a toddler boy named Morris George.

167 Brother Frank's obit mentioned that Wm D died at Terre Haute in 1893 on his way home from the world's fair, with eresipelas. This William D. is buried in same lot in Spring Hill Cemetery with father John Miller, and brother Frank B. and Frank's wife Susan. Perhaps this William D. did not marry. SHERFICK, William D. (I289)
 
168 Brothers and sister (Martin, Chester, William, Laurence, and Anthia Huff) moved from Cottonwood, Idaho to a farm east of Brady, Montana after the death of their father in 1908. The Huff house was the largest house in the area and is still a landmark today even though it is vacant. Anthia had five older brothers, but Martin was the only one that stayed in Montana. Martin Huff was born crippled and walked on his knees, which were covered with heavy leather pads, and was on crutches all of his life. In spite of his handicap, he owned and operated a large harness, shoe shop, and leather goods store in Brady. Martin took a severe loss when his store was destroyed by fire. After the fire, he moved to Conrad, Montana and bought a shoe shop where he repaired shoes, saddles, and leather goods of all kinds. His shoe shop was located in the vicinity of the present Home Cafe in Conrad. Martin drove his own car, a 1928 Plymouth, in all kinds of weather. If he got stuck in the snow, he would shovel himself out. He owned this car until his death. He was a good mechanic and was a very self-sufficient and capable man. (Taken from book called MORE OF YESTER YEARS by James Hall on page 175)

An article in The Brady Citizen, July 19, 1917 stated, "The Huff brothers, Martin and Laurence, have rented the Merigold building and by the last of the week Brady will have a new restaurant and short order house. The boys have completely remodeled their new quarters and will soon be ready for business. The new restaurant will be known as the Narrow Gauge Cafe and Laurence Huff promises an up to date place where quality, cookery and service will always be first."

173 Buried beside her grandfather, Benjamin and brother Benjamin F. She was only 9 yrs, 11 mos, 24 days. The cemetary wrongly lists on their database a Mary E. with different dates. This is a wrong transcription as the tombstone is old and worn. Cemetary records on Martin Co. GenWeb site list her birth as 1844 and death as Sep 16, 1854. The Sherficks had not even left Ohio until 1868. I think that this is a wrong transcription of her tombstone as the etching has faded quite a bit.

Obituary Two:
The Last Sad Rites, Aug. 1907

The curtain has been lowered and John H. Sherfick has been called to that Immortal Home From Whence No Traveler Returneth and Leaves Behind Fond Memories and deepest regret to the Loss of a Good Citizen and an Honest Official.

John H. Sherfick died at his home in this city on Thursday evening August 29th, 1907, after a brief illness of blood poisoning.

The deceased was born in Harrison County, Ohio. July 17th, 1856, being fifty-one years, one month, and two days of age at the time of his death. He moved with his parents to this country when twelve years of age and since that time has resided in this community. He was united in marriage to Miss Rachel J. Waggoner November 11th,1877, and unto this union were born four children, Mrs. Anna Tredway, George, Grace, and Will Sherfick, all whom with three grand-children, three brothers and one sister survive him. He joined the Methodist church at the age of nineteen years and remained a faithful member until called home to join the church triumphant in the kingdom of God. He was a devoted husband, a loving father, a faithful son and brother and a loyal friend.

He was elected sheriff of Martin County and served in that office without fear or favor and made a record as a county official that received the approval of everybody. After his retirement from that office he became a member of the firm of J. T. Morris & Co., hardware merchants, and followed their business for several years. After the recent town election he received the appointment of Marshall and was reappointed last spring and held that office until the time of his death and gave the people the best and most economical service ever rendered by an official in that position, and the substantial and well constructed street crossings will stand as a monument to his efficiency as an officer.

The deceased was one of the most popular men to the county and deserved the kindly feelings extended to him as he was a staunch friend to whom the utmost reliance could be placed and was at all times and under all circumstances ready to serve his friends and neighbors. He had confidence in his fellowmen and who never knew to have uttered harsh criticism against any person. He was honest in all of his dealings and worthy of every trust and confidence place in him.

The funeral took place Saturday morning being conducted by White River Lodge F & A M of which he was an honored member. A short service was performed after which the remains were taken to the Methodist Church where music was rendered by a special choir. The funeral sermon was delivered by Rev. W. A. Schell, pastor of that church, and was one of the best and most eloquent sermons ever preached in the city and at the close, there was not a dry eye in the vast audience. At the close of the sermon the beautiful Masonic service was given. The floral tributes were profuse and the attendance large, which gave evidence of the high esteem in which the deceased was held by his friends and neighbors.

The remains were then taken to the Spring Hill Cemetery where they were laid to rest with the impressive ritualistic Masonic service.

The family feels grateful for the many acts of kindness extended by friends and neighbors during their trying ordeal when husband and father was called home in so sudden and startling manner that even yet is hard to imagine that he has departed this life.

Obituary Three:
6 Sep 1907 Death of John H. Sherfick

John H. Sherfick died Thursday evening of the injuries received while mowing the streets on the West side as related in last week's TRIBUNE. The remains were interred Saturday afternoon after an impressive service at the M. E. Church conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. A. Schell. The large building was crowded with friends who had come to pay their last token of respect to all that was mortal of Mr. Sherfick. The funeral services were in charge of the Masonic lodge. John H. Sherfick was born in Harrison County, Ohio, Jul 17, 1856. He came to Indiana when about twelve years of age and lived in Lost River township until his election as sheriff some years ago. In 1877 he was married to Rachel Waggoner who, with four children, Mrs. William Tredway, George, Miss Grace, and William, survive him. At the time of his death Mr. Sherfick was Marshal of the town of Shoals. He was well-known over the county and numbered his friends by the legion. At an early age he had united with the M. E. Church and among his last words were messages to his loved ones that he was not afraid of death. His death coming so suddenly and to such a terrible form cast a shadow over the community which is only relieved by the knowledge that even though he is dead yet all is well with John. Even like the soldier who dies at the head of his company charging on the enemy so John died at his post of duty. It was while performing his official duties that he met with the accident which took him from our midst, and man can not die a nobler death that to die at his post. He was known as a man who always performed his duty no matter how irksome the task and was such a one as a community can ill afford to spare. But there was a duty for him elsewhere and he was called to perform it.

183 Catharine came over on the ship John Currier 3/16/1850 with Patrick's brother Barney, Barney's wife Ann, a Barney Jr. and an infant born at sea. The infant would be Edward Mullen, son of Barney and Ann. Unknown, Catherine "Katie" (I9986)
 
184 Catherine's last name was spelled Roff on page 417 of Martin Co. Marriage book in Shoals Library.

Probably died in childbirth as Emma Jane is buried beside her in 1872. Her tombstone has been replaced with a new pink stone, probably decades later as it is one of the newer in this section of the cemetery. Vandals might have destroyed the first stone. I'm not sure who replaced it.
