The ca.1810 Gravel Pit Road home had previously been indicated as a cabinet shop on the 1854 map of Clarendon.  Details of the historic survey can be found at the attached link

The cover photo is from 1917.  The man pictured is Edwin Rutherford Sherman (1849 - 1936) who lived there with his 2nd wife Mary Palmer (1868 - 1956) and their 3 daughters.  When the Sherman family arrived in Clarendon and subsequently left is not known.  In the 1910 census they were in Fair Haven and in 1930 in Wallingford.  The 1920 census listed Edwin as being a retail grocer but we haven't identified the location of the store yet. 

The 1st photo below is from the 1976 State historic survey.  This property was owned by Donald E. Heleba at the time of that survey.  The items below that are courtesy of Kathy Hepburn Halford.

The subsequent photos below are first Edwin Sherman with his 1st wife Frances Minkler (1849 - 1893) followed by the back of that 1917 postcard.  The postcard was sent by Edwin to their grandson Frank Guy Hepburn (1902 - 1956), son of their daughter Daisy Bell Sherman (1872 - 1902) and her husband Frederick George Hepburn (1872 - 1934).  At the very bottom is a 1916 letter to that grandson Frank Guy Hepburn when Edwin Sherman was living in Chippenhook . 

Next to last is a photo from 2020 courtesy of Phil Mandolare and below that one from 2007 town records.
