Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Sarah may have been born in Guernsey County, Ohio. [research-a-spear-family-history]

Sarah was probably buried in New Union Cemetery, in Spencer, Owen County, Indiana. However, the gravestone has significant damage and the image included on Find A Grave does not allow clear view of the names, let alone the dates associated with Sarah and her husband Tinch.
