Sherman, Roger Minot, 1733-1844



  • Existence: 1733 - 1844


Roger Minott Sherman (May 22, 1773 – December 30, 1844) was the youngest of six children of Rev. Josiah Sherman (Princeton College - 1754). After graduating from Yale, he began the study of law in Windsor, under the direction of Oliver Ellsworth, and at the same time taught an academy. After about two years he removed to the Litchfield Law School, where he continued his studies with Tapping Reeve, while teaching a common school. In February, 1795, he was elected a tutor at Yale College while continuing the study of law with Simeon Baldwin (Yale 1781). He was admitted to the bar in New Haven early in 1796, and in May of that year resigned his tutorship and settled in the profession of the law in Norwalk, Connecticut.
