After his service in the American Civil War, Sheran followed a fellow soldier (Joseph Healy, a member of the Kainai Nation who was adopted by the Healy family) to Montana where he worked as a prospecter and trader. In June 1874, he went north to Fort Whoop-Up, a whiskey-trading post started by Healy's older adoptive brother John J Healy in what is now Lethbridge, Alberta.
A park, leisure centre, a pool, and an elementary school in Lethbridge are named after Sheran.
