Living with them in 1860 were John B. Sleeper, 21, Ellen L. Sleeper, 16, and Clara L. Sleeper, 12. Ten years earlier, John B. Sleeper was living in Limerick, York County, Maine, in the Samuel Swett household. Also living in Limerick in 1850 was Tryphosa Sleeper, in a Bradbury household.

 

There was an Ellen A. Sleeper, 7, living in 1850 in New Limerick, Aroostook County, Maine, in the Ebenezer C. Bradbury household. Many of New Limerick's early settlers came from Limerick in York County.

 

Using this information, I found this page, which states that Ebenezer Cleaves and Clarissa (Adams) Bradbury had a daughter Tryphosa Cleaves Bradbury, born 3 June 1817. Tryphosa evidently married a Sleeper, who died before 1850, with whom she had several children, and after 1850 married Horace Morse.

Oh yes, should have checked the divorce records.

Are you able to find anything on her death or marriage to Horace ?
Comment by Chris Dunham on March 20, 2011 at 5:38am
No, I didn't see any evidence of those. Vital records from those small Aroostook County towns and plantations can be hard to find. I see that Sherman death and marriage records begin in 1862. New Limerick town records seem never to have been microfilmed.
