In Reply to: Re: Sarah (Armstrong) Marsh (1801-1865) Harrison Co., Indiana by Rebecca Bandy of 532

All I know for sure is that Sarah Armstrong married William C. Marsh in Harrison Co., Indiana on May 29, 1823.
[Marriage Book A-2, Harrison Co. Courthouse, Corydon, IN
ARMSTRONG SARAH MARSH WILLIAM HARRISON 5-28-1823]

William C. Marsh was the son of Jesse Charles Marsh & Margaret Holliday and the grandson of Capt. William Marsh & Elizabeth Cornwallis.

These people are all buried in the Marsh Family Cemetery in
Laconia, Indiana.

Sarah Armstrong was born in Brandenburg, Meade, Kentucky
about 1801......she married in 1823......and she died in 1865.

On the 1820 census there are exactly 4 men listed on the census for Harrison Co., Indiana.....two are Georges and then there is a James and a Joseph. I believe James is way too young to be her parent so that leaves three men.......
that is of course if her parents lived in Harrison Co., IN.

There was a George Armstrong in Jessamine Co., KY in 1810 and coincidently Jesse Marsh was in Jessamine Co. at that time also .....

Title: Certificates Issued to Kentuckians from Jeffersonville, Indiana Land Office
Author: Ancestral Trails Historical Society
Publication: Kentucky Ancestors
Media: Book
Text: George Armstrong & Jesse Marsh (both in Jessamine Co., Kentucky 1810)

None of this proves anything of course....and Sarah could very well be George's sister even......anything is possible.

I had hoped some other Marsh or Holliday researchers would be looking for her famiy also and would have a clue....but
so far her family is in hiding.

Happy Hunting......
