Lincoln Sentinel-Republican -- Feb. 2, 1928
---John L. SHERMAN was born at Lee’s Summit, Mo., Feb. 5, 1879. With the family he came to Lincoln, Kansas, when he was 3 years of age and from that time until his death his home was in this community. He was married to Bertha DONLEY July 4, 1905. To them was born one daughter Joyce Ellen. Death came to him at his home in Lincoln at 7 p.m. on Jan. 25, 1928, at the age of 48 years 11 months and 20 days.
His life was one of quiet usefulness and he held a high place in the esteem of all who knew him. In his earlier years he experienced the hardships of pioneer conditions and almost from his boyhood he shared in responsibilities for his own needs and for those of the family. His father died when he was about 20 years of age and his responsibility became greater in behalf of his mother and sister. He became a carpenter and builder, his first experience being gained in the construction of grain elevators. He came to enjoy an enviable position in his calling, having the respect and confidence of all. He was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and of the Izaak Walton League.
After months of intense suffering it became apparent both to him and his family that there could be but one outcome. He knew that the end was near and he faced it unafraid. He expressed himself as fully ready to go. His last thought and arrangements were for his loved ones and his final conscience hours. He leaves the wife and daughter, one brother, W.T. SHERMAN of Lincoln, and one sister, Mrs. Myrtle HUFF of Salina. His father and mother lie at rest in the local cemetery. His score of friends extend sympathy in this hour to his loved ones while they pay respect to his memory. His was a good and useful life well lived. The fight is finished, the earthly course is run.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon, Jan. 27, at the Methodist Church. The church was filled almost to capacity which was a silent tribute to his friends and showed the esteem in which he was held by those who knew him. Interment was made in the Lincoln Cemetery.

Lincoln Sentinel -- Feb. 7, 1901
---O. SHERMAN was born in Washington County, Ohio, April 11, 1838, and died at Lincoln, Kansas, Feb. 2, 1901, age 62 years, 9 months and 21 days. Mr. SHERMAN was married to Dorinda HENDRICKSON in Clark County, Missouri, Nov. 4, 1866, and, with his family, came to Kansas in 1879. To them there were were born five children, three of whom survive their father, William T., John L. and Ella Myrtle.
Mr. SHERMAN, during the time which he has lived in Lincoln, has earned a reputation for industry and integrity which anyone ought to desire. He worked almost constantly and under physical conditions which would have discouraged many. His quiet manliness who, with his wife and family, mourn his departure.

He was a second cousin of William Tecumseh and John SHERMAN of national fame and in many respects the family traits of activity and application were manifest in him. While it was not given him to rise to prominence he left what every person ought to seek, the remembrance of an untarnished name.

Lincoln Sentinel-Republican -- May 29, 1930, p. 1
--- William T. SHERMAN was born in Lee’s Summit, Mo., Oct. 3, 1875. While he was yet a small child the family came to Lincoln and here almost his entire life was spent. By trade a carpenter, scores of buildings in Lincoln and adjoining counties show his handiwork. For several years his health has been such as to incapacitate him for work quite a part of the time. He was patient in suffering.
About 15 years ago he united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in Lincoln. He was also an honored member of the Odd Fellows. Death came to him at the hospital in Lincoln on May 23, 1930, at the age of 54 years 7 months and 20 days. Respectful of all, he leaves a host of friends to mourn his going and to sympathize with his relatives. The immediate family, which is bereft by his death, is his sister Mrs. Myrtle HUFF, Salina, with her four children, and Mrs. Bertha SHERMAN, his sister-in-law, with her daughter, Joyce Ellen. There are many relatives only a little more distant who share in this loss. His was an honorable life usefully lived. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the Methodist Church with the pastor Rev. Roy D. PLOTT in charge. Interment in Lincoln cemetery.
