My 2nd great grandparents were William Thomas Renshaw and Martha Ann Edwards. Their oldest daughter's marriage records listed her as Sarah H. Rencher. She married Lemuel P. Taylor on May 20, 1880 in Trappe, Wicomico, Maryland at the home of her parents.

Sarah died sometime between 1880 and 1882. This I know because her husband married a younger sister of Sarah's. Her name was Esther Savoy Renshaw, AKA Hester. She died of TB on either Dec 3, 1902 or 1903 in Wicomico County, Maryland.

Esther and Lemuel had three daughters (per census records). They were Alifair (Fairy), Nellie Pearl and Georgia Belle. Alifair married Larry T. Townsend. They had three children: Roland, Gilbert and Beulah. I do not know if Nellie Pearl, Georgia Belle, Roland, Gilbert of Beulah married and had children.

If anyone knows these families, please contact me. I'm going cross reference these families on the Renshaw, Taylor and Townsend message boards.

Thank you for any help you all can offer.
