Your Sarah Ella Grass is not same as the Mary Ellen 'Ella' Grass.
Sarah Ella Grass, most likely the daughter of Adam and Margaret Grass. On the Archambeault Family Sheet for Peter Grass, Jr., Adam Grass is listed as a brother to James W Grass, who is father to Mary Ellen and Martha Grass, among other children. It is proven your Sarah Ella and Mary Ellen are not the same lady.
