Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)
Death Date: This database uses 15 Apr 1843. A Memorial and Biographical Record of Iowa notes that Rachel died when her son George Jenkins Maris was six months old. Using an exact interpretation of this age with George's birth date of 17 Jun 1841 gives a death date range for Rachel from 17 Dec 1841 to 16 Jan 1842. [book-memorial-record-of-iowa-v1-1896]
Sarah's parents may have been Michael Jenkins (d. before 1816 in Ohio) and Sara Kinsey (d. before 9 Jun 1845 in Ohio). [research-a-spear-family-history, research-ancestor-chart-of-george-spear]
