(The below information was emailed to me from Elizabeth Orsay Balazs, whose credentials are: "Susanna Craddock & Nelson Sherman were my step-mother Virginia Ives's great-great-grandparents. I will tell you what I know about Susanna, but I will also copy this message to my step-mother and father, Paul Orsay, to give you more information. My information came from them in the first place.")

From Rockville she and husband went to Manchester IA in 1857 and lived on a farm till 1860. She then moved to Chickasaw remaining till July 1861. In July 1861 she married Nelson Sherman.
