From 1913 to the mid-1920's, Reginald lived with his mother, step-father, Charles Edgar Sherwood, under an assumed surname, Walker. Records for the family during this period are under that surname. Further, Reginald used his step-father's surname the rest of his life, so records after the mid-1920's for Reginald are under the surname, Sherwood.

According to a newspaper article, "Area Loses Fine Citizen as Jack Sherwood Dies," Jack had an abiding interest in activities for youg people, including his help in establishing girls softball and the Little League in Foothill Farms, among other things.
