    Notes 
    • 1850 living in Nashua,NH (and his children George and Francis are in Canaan,CT with the James Bunce family).

      It was in 1867 that the then idle property of the Idaho Iron Company, founded in 1861 by Sherman Jaqua, was bought by the firm of Cooke Brothers (John, Watts, William, and James) and altered into a mill to make ordinary bar iron.

      Sherman Jaqua of Paterson NJ was 42 years old when he invented the locomotive wheel, patent # 37,206 for 'Rolling tires for Locomotive wheels' on Dec 16 1862 An adjustable frame and several sets of rollers were the basis of this invention. It seems that 'tires' are actually iron or steel wheels for trains.

      1880 living in Chatham,NY as a farmer with his wife, Mary.
