James was the first to put together a family tree. Much of the information found on this page started with the research that he did back in 1988. He did not have the advantage of doing research on the internet and had to spend a lot of time and effort to gather the data that he was able to find. Click Here to read a letter that he wrote to me concerning our family tree.

James had two sons, Kevin Sherley and Keith Sherley, and one daughter, Keena Sherley.
