Re: Sarah Jane Holbrook Boston - Charlestown 1800's

In Reply to: Sarah Jane Holbrook Boston - Charlestown 1800's by David Brower of 3282

Finally found Sarah Jane Holbrook who married John Hawthorne Brower on 3 July 1860.

She was born 21 May 1838 in the North End of Boston, Mass., and died 14 June 1926 in Beverly, Mass.

She is in the 1850 Census of Chelsea, MA as the 13 yr old daughter of Samuel E and Caroline C. She is the 3rd of maybe 10 or more children, 5 of them sons.

1850 Chelsea Census list of family and ages:
Samuel E Holbrook 41
Caroline 33
Caroline 17
Samuel E 15
Sarah J 13
Mary A 11
Alexander 9
Charles H 7
William L 3
Herbert A 0

She is listed in the 1860 Census of Charlestown, MA with John H Brower whom she married two weeks prior to the census which lists her age as 23.

1860 Charlestown Census list of family and ages:
Samuel E Holbrook 51
Caroline 46
Mary A 20
Alex 18
Charles H 15
William L 12
Herbert A 10
Ella 8
Laura 4

This helps to separate her from a Sarah Jane Holbrook born 1840 in the Braintree / Weymouth area.

I'll post this in the Holbrook forum with the family member names and may get some help from there.

Thanks for your help.
