I'm trying to trace the family of a Sarah Lucinda Friend who appears to not only have been orphaned at a very tender age, but who then may have lost her only sibling as a child as well.
Sarah was born in Jan. of 1856 in Upshur Co. WV. Her parents, Mary Ann Collins and John Friend had married there on Jul.27.1854. Her younger brother Lewis Friend was born the following year.
By the 1860 census, however, both children are living with a Lewis Collins in Upshur Co. WV, their parents are not listed on the census. In the 1870 census, only Sarah is listed.
John Friend was the s/o Lucinda Gordon and Israel A. Friend who married on May.27.1829 in Nicholas Co. WV
I SUSPECT but have not proven that Mary Ann Collins is the d/o of Sarah "Sally" Bailes/Boles? and Lewis Collins who married Jan.04.1830 in Nicholas Co. WV.
Can anyone here help me with this family? Who are Mary's parents/siblings? Did they take the children in? What became of Sarah's little brother Lewis Friend?
Any help would be most appreciated!
Bye for now,
