    to set someone on his way

    The meaning of my sentences below may in some cases be a bit strange and odd, but it's about the grammar of course.
    So, please be so kind and have a look at them.

    1. I set them on their way.
    2. I set him on his way.
    3. I set her on her way.
    4. I set us on our way.
    5. I set it on its way. ( A pet for example.)
    6. I set me on my way.

    They're all grammatical.

    They're all grammatical but #4 and #6 are fairly unlikely.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
