Hello; I am not related, but I am a genealogist by hobby. I found this bio sketch in the US gen web site for Edgar Co. Illinois and thought I would send it along, in case you hadn't found it yet. Hope this is a sibling for your William. Happy hunting,, Wayne O. Cunningham

D. J. SHERER, farmer, Sec. 3; P. O. Grand View; is a native of Preble Co.,
Ohio, and son of D. J. Sherer, an old Revolutionary soldier, who died at Grand
View, June 14, 1866, aged 82 years. He was born May 4, 1827, and lived at his
native place until the age of 21; at this age, he began the study of medicine
at New Hope, Ohio, with Dr. G. W. Dickey; he remained with this gentleman
about three years. During this time, he attended and became a graduate of
medicine at the E. M. Institute of Cincinnati. In 1852, he began practicing in
Eaton, Ohio, but remained only a short time, when he went to Madison Co.,
Ind., where he practiced a little over three years. Though he had a fine
practice, he became tired of his profession; gave it up entirely, and, in
1856, returned to Ohio, where he remained about nine years. In 1865, he came
to Edgar Co., and located on the farm where he now resides; he has a nice
little farm and a good home; has devoted a portion of his time of late years
to grape culture. Is a pleasing and congenial gentleman, not at all of a
penurious nature; he has not made so much of an effort to accumulate property
as he has to enjoy life; but is still known as one of the responsible,
reliable men of Grand View Tp.
