This Andrew's grandfather, born near Sherwood Forest, Nottingham, England, is also named Andrew Sherwood. I am interested in knowing if there really is a book existing about Andrew Sherwood. Would it be worth my while to travel to Potter County to see this book? Is it possible to make copies of it? If so May I please know the cost? Thank you for your assistance. Jeanne Peterson
