Obituary:
Charles Sherfick Aged Resident Killed By Train

Charles M. Sherfick, age 86 years, a retired farmer, was killed instantly about 1 p.m. Saturday, June 9, when he was struck by the west-bound Baltimore& Ohio Train No. 3 at the Main Street crossing, in Shoals. He suffered a fractured skull, crushed chest, fracture of both legs and both arms and multiple other bruises and injuries.

Mrs. Eddie Sherfick was an unwilling eye witness of the tragedy. She was waiting in her car on the south side of the tracks for the train to pass and gave the flollowing account of the accident:
"Mr. Sherfick was going north on the sidewalk to the east of Main Street. When I first saw him, he was between the switch tracks and the main tracks. He walked directly in front of the train with his head down. I don't think he even saw or heard the train. The engineer blew and blew the whistle, but if Mr. Sherfick heard it, he gave no sign. I turned off the motor of my car and got out and called to James Beard, who was coming down the street, that the train had hit a man. At that time I did not know who it was who had been killed."

The impact threw the body across the street, a distance of about twenty-five feet, and into a late model Chevrolet car, which was parked on the west side of Main Street, facing south. The frame of he car was thrown out of line and the car was splattered with blood. It was owned by Thomas E. Harder.

According to witnesses north of the crossing, Mr. Sherfick was almost across the track when hit and only a few more steps would have carried him to safety. Harry Mendell of Seymour was the engineer and N. R. Borden, of Washington, was the conductor of the train.

Mr. Sherfick was born in Martin County on December 4, 1869 the son of John L. and Catherine (Ruff) Sherfick. He married Alice Drake, who has preceded him in death.

He was a member of the Christian Church.

He was elected on the Democrat ticket as Clerk of the Martin Circuit Court in 1926 and was re-elected for a second term in 1930.

Mr. Sherfick is survived by six sons and two daughters. They are John Sherfick, of Tunnelton, Indiana Frank and Kenneth Sherfick, of Shoals, Ind., Alvis Sherfick, of Fowler, Ind., Charles Sherfick, of Crown Point, Ind., Jack Sherfick, of Springfield, Ohio, Mrs. Susie Mundy, of Seymour, and Mrs. Maude Sorrells, of Shoals. There are thirty-three grandchildren and forty-three great grandchildren.

He was the last member of his family.

Funeral services were conducted at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jun 12, at the Christian Church, with Bro. M. M. Wright in charge of the rites. Burial was made in Spring Hill Cemetery, with the Queen Funeral Home in charge of the arrangements.

From the scrapbook of Ellen Sherfick, transcribed by Howard Sherfick in 1969:
Picnic held in home of William D. Sherfick, Nephew of Mrs. Charles Renneker. Wilma Jane, daut of WDS; Mrs. J. H. Sherfick and daut Grace; Mrs. and Mrs. W. E.

Sherfick and son John; Mrs. Anna Tredway and children George, Mildred, and Harold; Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Renneker; Mr. and Mrs. Cal Sherfick and children Walter, Carl, and Wilma; and Paul Garrison of Center, Ohio.

This newspaper clipping doesn't mention if the picnic was held in Shoals or Indianapolis. It had to take place before 1919 as Paul Gerretson wasn't married to Grace yet. It had to take place before 1912 as Calvin and wife had 3rd child Wilma in 1912.

William D. Sherfick was listed as Martin County Clerk on Dec. 15, 1910.

90 A Family History of William Garfield Treadway 1895-1962 by
Judith Mae Braem Treadway, 1993, reports: "Aaron and Priscilla travelled into Kentucky." There, when Aaron was only 24, "he met up with Davy Crockett, then 40, wrestled him -- and won the match. As a trophy he received an iron fireplace oven." The story goes on to say, "While Aaron and his wife still were in Kentucky, Senator Abe Lincoln -- not too important at the time -- passed through and stopped with them, and Priscilla cooked two turkey thighs for him in that same pot." While amusing, this story does not stand up to scrutiny. Crockett was born in 1786 and died in 1836 so he was age 40 in 1826, when Aaron was seventeen. Lincoln won his first election, to the Illinois House of Representatives, in 1834, where he served until 1842. He served one term, from 1846 to 1848,in the United States House. He was never a Senator either in Springfield or in Washington. Aaron lived to be 103 and Priscilla to be 99. They are both buried in unmarked graves a few miles off Doe Branch Road in a family cemetery near Walnut in Madison County, North Carolina.

97 Additional info from Jerry Cox.
Ruth died of Cirrhosis of the liver and dropsy. It's a guess who fathered Albert Wilkerson age 3 in 1850 living with James and Ruth. His name was likely changed to Peterson later to make simple. No Albert was in Ben Peterson's Will. There is no marriage record for a Wilkinson to Ruth and she appears single until marriage to Ben at age 33.

Ruth Moore Peterson lied about her age as 29. She was 34 and had only been married to Ben Peterson 3 months when he died of accute dissentary (ground glass). She didn't stay with Ben's kids. In a brief deathbed will, Ben left all to the kids and "to my beloved wife Ruth, one dollar." I'm still researching Ruth since I relate to her daughter Martha Denning who drove my g-grandad to drink. She had five husbands and always lied about her age, too.

In 1860 living in Mitcheltree Twn, Martin Co, Indiana with husband James I Denning, children Jas W. J, Elizabeth, Nancy, Martha, and Susan. Next door lives Robert Denning and wife Susan.

In 1880 living with son-in-law Thomas Morton and daughter Susan in Halbert Twn, Martin Co., Indiana.
