I grew up in the sherwood house in Etna, My grandparents were the next family in there. They all died each day of the week. They are buried in the local cemetary down the road from the house which is still standing and being worked on. It was going into disrepair, I am also friends with the sherwoods decendents who I grew up with. Ironically my grandmother ( My mom;s mom was a Sherwood) but we were never really sure if we were related.
