I am seeking Sarah Murph, b. ab.t 1849, Cabarrus Co., NC, daughter of Samuel Murph and Esther Shinn Kerns.

Sarah last found 1870 census, #2 Twp., Cabarrus Co., living with brother in law and sister, Jessie M. and Martha (Murph) Barnhardt. Sarah's age is 21. So far I have been unable to locate a marriage record so am going thru the 1880 census. Have eliminated most, but have three Sarah's I need to know about.

1880 census Cabarrus Co, NC:
Dutch Buffalo: there is a Sarah Ann, age 30 married to Fredrick FURR, age 59. She must be a second wife as previous wife's name was Chrissy.

Old Field: there is a Sarah, age 32, wife of Henry FAGGERT, age 42. There are 5 children, age 10 and under.

Misenheimers, Twp #5: there is a Sarah, age 31, marrid to Victor Melchor, age 41. Since there is a daughter age 13, this one is most likely not Sarah Murph, but still need to know for sure.

If anyone can help me eliminate or confirm any of these Sarah's as my Sarah Murph, I would appreciate it.
