Daniel Sherman Sherm Boggs

Daniel Sherman "Sherm" Boggs was the youngest son of John Milt and Margaret Wheeler Boggs. He was probably named in part after his grandfather Daniel Rolen Wheeler. Uncle Sherm was about five years old when his mother died. According to many family members, Uncle Sherm was the cut-up of the family. He had a great sense of humor and loved to joke around. He was known for a pair of brown and white wing-tip shoes that he frequently wore to family reunions. I even have a picture of him at a reunion in those shoes! Sometime after his marriage he moved to Oak Hill, Ohio. His son, Edgil, told me that Uncle Sherm asked him to take him back to Lick Creek. Edgil said that he was about 18 or 19 years old when his father asked him this favor. Edgil said that they made the trip, which meant running part of the way in the creek bed. Uncle Sherm told Edgil to stop the car and he got out. He didn't tell Edgil where he was going. Edgil asked at a house if they had seen his father and they told him where he could find him. He went up to the little shack and he said that he could see the floor boards come up and go back down.

Uncle Sherm popped his head out the door and said "Aw - it's just Edgil". Edgil entered the house and his dad and another man were sipping shine. The man poured Edgil a teacup of shine. Edgil said that it really made him dizzy! Uncle Sherman once bought a calf that had been born with six legs. Apparently, the farmer was all too happy to sell the calf to him to get rid of it. Uncle Sherman then took the calf around all of one summer and charged people a quarter to see it! His nephew Morris Robinson could remember Uncle Sherman coming by the school he attended to let the kids see the calf for free. According to the 1930 census, Sherman and Mary Liz were living in Webbville, Lawrence County, Kentucky. They had six children at the time. Sometime shortly thereafter, the family moved to the Minford, Ohio, area, and then eventually to Oak Hill, Ohio. The family lived on Route 335 near Minford, Ohio, for a while. They had a house fire at this location and lost one of their sons, Bobby Clark Boggs, in the fire. Sherman's sister Nettie Boggs Blevins had a premonition about the fire and knew when the call came that Sherman had lost his home. Uncle Sherman was a member of the Pine Creek United Baptist Church in South Webster, Ohio. After his wife, Mary Liz Boggs, died in 1973, Sherman remarried. Sherman and Mary Liz Boggs are buried in the Horeb Cemetery, Oak Hill, Ohio.
