Marshall David & Corinna (Hanchett) Sherd
From John Dasef's book on Montcalm County, MI: "Marshall D. Sherd--"Sunny Slope Farm," a well kept tract of productive land, eighty acres in extent, on rural route No. 1, lying three and one-half miles east and three miles south of Sheridan, in this county, is owned by Marshall D. Sherd, who has been a resident of Montcalm County since he was nine years of age. "Marshall D. Sherd was born in Lenawee County, Michigan, on March 27, 1861, son of William and Eliza (Lewis) Sherd, the former of whom was born in New York state and the latter in Sandusky county, Ohio, whose respective parents were among the pioneer settlers in Lenawee County. "Having been but nine years of age when he came to Montcalm County with his parents, Marshall D. Sherd has lived here practically all his life. He received his education in the district schools of Bushnell Township and remained under the parental roof until he was about twenty-one years of age, after which he went to farming on his own account. The next year he was married and he and his wife went to housekeeping, and in 1893 they moved to "Sunny Slope Farm" and have prospered, being now considered quite well circumstanced. "On January 17, 1883, Marshall D. Sherd was united in marriage to Corinna Hanchett, who was born in Bushnell Township on February 17, 1862, daughter of Joseph and Angelina (Husker) Hanchett, prominent residents of that township. "Mr. and Mrs. Sherd are quiet, unassuming people, who take a proper part in the social affairs of their neighborhood and are held in high regard. Mr. Sherd is a Republican and for many years has given close attention to the political affairs of the county and has served as treasurer of Bushnell Township. He is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and takes much interest in the affairs of that popular order."
