I have an April, 1912 ORER and it also has no listing for Sherman.
I have to speculate, then, that these cars were scrapped or possibly
sold and/or rebuilt fairly early on, due to the obsolete underframes.

As an aside, this web site has a number of other freightcar photos.
An example is this view of early MKT and T&NO boxcars:

As before, there is a high-resolution link that lets you see reporting
marks and other details. Check out the funky coupler on MKT 11676...
