I am looking for information on Sarah Harkness my grgr grandmother
I know she was related toStephen V Harkness who was a founder of std oil. He and and his sonEdward Stephen Harkness (Philantropist) are in Wikipedia,and numerous books etc. I know they are related to Sarahbecause William Bain Showalter, my gr grandfather, repudiated the Harkness trust prior to 1929.I think Sarah is Stephen V Harkness' aunt(?) or first cousin (?) but I am not sure of the relationship. Steven V Harkness father was David Harkness whowas a physician in Fayette NY who moved to Milan, Ohio in 1820 after his first wife died. He then married Elizabeth Caldwell Morrison. David died in 1925. David Harkness had a younger brother, Lamon G. Harkness, who was also a doctor but who became a successful businessman in Bellevue, Ohio. Possibly Sarah is his daughter? I don't know David Harkness's parents names and I can't confirm his siblimgs names. If I had this info I think I could put together the family tree and find how Sarah fits.
