Research to date on these people leaves a lot of gaps!

Barrack [various spellings] Dixon Holmes married May 29, 1847 in Crawford County, Ohio to Sarah "Sallie" Odell.

The family bible says Sarah Odell was born May 26, 1827 in Crawford County, Ohio.

1870 Sarah Holmes and children not found

In the Bedford Cemetery, Bedford, Taylor County, Iowa is a tombstone:
Sarah Holmes, died July 24, 1875 ae 48y 1m 29d.
She is buried in Lot 27. The cemetery book says that Lot 27 was bought by S.P. Holmes. There were 8 graves on the lot and only the 3rd one where she is buried was used.

I have no record or reason to prove that this Sarah Holmes is the Sarah Odell Holmes above. [?]

James Welsh 23 m farmer Oh
Sallie Welsh 22 f keepinghouse Oh
Laura? Welsh 2/12 at home born Mar Ohio

Could this Sallie Welsh be the Cemantha Holmes listed on the 1860 census?? Since most of the kids were not called the names on the 1860/1880 census - i.e. Shaffer was William S. and Flora was called Nellie...this Sallie is the right age to be the Cemantha listed.

Does anyone have any other data on these people - like obituaries???
