In the 1850 census of Jackson Twp there was a Sarah Burns, 15, in the household of one Adam Petre, 60, his wife Lucy, 58, and their son Andrew, 21. I read elsewhere that Adam was a pioneer settler of Decatur County. There is a strong possibility that Sarah was my wife's great grandmother. I would appreciate any clues about her and about the Petres.
I already know a Sarah Catherine Burns married James Franklin Wheeldon 7 Oct 1852 in Decatur County. My wife descends through their first-born, John Henry Wheeldon. The question really is, is this the same Sarah?
