Aaaugh

I just noticed something (that really should have smacked me in the face years ago) about English:

He Him His
She Her Her

IE,
He has a ball. Give the ball to him. It is his ball.

She has a ball. Give the ball to her. It is her ball.

Shouldn't they be, "Give the ball to shem," (instead of her) and "It is hir ball" (instead of his)?
