Shirley, Thank you for this information.I am not related to Sabra Agard, rather am researching and editing letters of my great-grandmother Sabra Miner Sturgis who spent most of her life in Wayne, Ashtabula County, O. I'm trying to track down the hundreds of townspeople she mentions.
In a letter in 1894, she writes: "I suppose you recollect Sabra Agard, perhaps know she's a citizen of California, I have just received a box of dried rose leaves[,] she cultivates them as she has 40 different varieties. . ."
"My" Sabra, at almost 80, was clearly touched by the gift.Don't know if you're related to Sabra Agard, but thought someone might enjoy the quote.
