Re: Sarah George

In Reply to: Sarah George by Sharon Tate of 6517

Hi Sharon, I hope we are on the right track. My Great Great Grandmother was named Sarah Wilcox, born 1830. She married in Iowa County Wisconsin in 1847 to Samuel George. Listed on the census of 1850 for Lafayette County Wisconsin was Samuel George, Sarah his wife and Children Mary, Margaret and James. Sarahs mother was Jane Willson who married first John Davis. I found that marriage listed in Indiana marriages. Then she married John Wilcox. That is also listed. Margaret who was my Great Grandmother married Reason Howard. The problem is finding the facts on Samuel George. I found an article that said he was one of the men on the board that started the town of Darlington and that he was buried next to an Indian Chief In New York State.
Following that clue I found three Samuel Georges listed on the Onondaga census. I found Land grants signed by the president when he was alloted land in Wisconsin,starting in 1838. in Iowa County. I found were he brought or sold land to the Howards. He is on the census of 1830, which showed he possibly had a daughter living with a Purdy family. I hope this can help and with two heads searching we might get it all hooked to gether. Dorothy
