...Mr. Grant thinks Captain Sherwood has mistaken the course of W. Fortune's, but he supposes that will cause no material difference...
From The Sherwood Family website:
Sherwood was born in Newtown, Connecticut on 7 March 1747...and married Sarah Bottum about 1774.
An earlier post, Bottum Farm Once Owned By Justus Sherwood, Now An Historic Place, from In Deeds:
Although no structures remain from the property's earliest document period, it is also significant for its associations with Justus Sherwood... First owned and farmed in 1774 by Sherwood -- an individual significant to New Haven's, Vermont's and even Canada's history -- the property remained in his wife's Sarah (Bottum) Sherwood's family for almost two hundred and fifty years.
