Shearman/Sherman/Sheerman/Shearinman family in Lisburn

Post by cargocult » 05 Mar 2008, 11:35

Hi,

As well as looking for Cunninghams(C.Tyrone), one branch of the family seems to track back to Lisburn.

Mary Ann Shearman(cotton weaver) married Francis McCracken, in Maybole Ayrshire in 1828, but ended up in Glasgow where she died c.1880. She seems to have been born in Lisburn c.1806. Her father was Richard (Sherman-cattle dealer). Do these details ring any bells with anyone out there?

I'd love to know more.
