      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 children Nell and Frank; John M. 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.
