J.H. Sherrard was engaged in Tucker, Sherrard & Company, Sherrard, Tailor & Co and Clark, Sherrard & Co.

By the September 1862, Labon Tucker had withdrawn from the company and it became Taylor, Sherrard & Co. It seems that the first company made no revolvers and only a few were completed by the second. A large amount of unfinished parts were left over from the operations of these two companies and these parts were taken over by Clark, Sherrard & Co. This last company managed to finish about 400 revolvers after the Civil War.
