Mary Sherwood bore Hugh Wilson four children. As Hugh's widow, she married James Kirkman and bore him three children, Mary Thomas Sherwood, and Roger. She survived James and died in Guilford County. I have copies of the original records. She was from Dorchester County, Maryland.
I am not absolutely certain, but according to census data, the information on the Cavanahs seems confusing. I know that William T. is a son a John Henry Cavanah; it is possible that there are two lines of Cavanahs both originating in Northern Christian, or perhaps what the author refers to as Northern Christian eventually became Webster and/or Hopkins, with the Fruit Hill line being located in what is now Northern Christian. If the author had footnoted, any reader could verify the information, but unfortunately, without sources cited, this could just be a fictional story, spun to create a little local history.
