Sarah Dugan married William Boal in 1850 in Perry County, Ohio in 1850. They are found that same year in Salt Lick Twp in the same county in 1850 census
records. That census info shows Sarah had been born in Ireland in 1832.

The 1860 cenus lists them in neighboring Ward Township, Hocking County, Ohio with a Haydenville post office. By the 1870 census the family is in Coal Twp,
Perry County, Ohio, which I believe developed out of Salt Lick Twp. Sarah is gone. Various censuses show the youngest child, Daniel Grant Boals as being born
anywhere from 1866 to 1868. So mother Sarah had died somewhere between 1866 and 1870.

I'm trying to find when Sarah Jane Dugan Boal(s) died and where.

Can anyone show a cemetery index listing a Sarah Boals who would have died between 1866 and 1870 and buried, probably in either Salt Lick/Coal Townships in
Perry County, Ohio or Ward Township, Hocking County, Ohio? I have run across a summary of Hocking County cemeteries that only lists surnames buried in each
listed cemetery. Murray City Cemetery has the surname Boals listed. Can anyone specify the name or names and dates of the person(s) buried there?

Does anyone know which sections of Ward Township, Hocking County would have been served by the Haydenville post office in 1870 or what sections of Salt
Lick Twp, Perry County would have been served by a New Straitsville post office in 1860?

Are there summaries of death records available for Perry or Hocking County or even Athens County(Trimble and York Townships are nearby), Ohio from 1867
forward, that can be checked for a recording of such a death.

Thank you, Mike at
