many thanks

yes Sarah Bloss married James Scarff about 1823 or maybe a year or two earlier in VA most likely Rockingham County as she was born on the homestead 3 miles due east of Verbena which is a few miles north of ELkton

James died and then Sarah married Philip Olinger in Warren County OH He ran the Red Lion Tavern in Red Lion Ohio

Olinger's first wife , Nancy Gustin died along with two sons

Only lately have I learned that Sarah had several daughters with James Scarff before he died one was named Julia

Sarah was born 1798 I think, don;t have notes in front of me.

Bloss is also spelled Blose especially in the Shenandoah Valley area. Bloss in German sound like close or gross

thanks again

Dick Bloss

BTW Sarah and Philip buried in Red Lion
