Thank you for your reply, but unfortunately, I told you almost all I know in that one fell swoop. Sarah was born March 10, 1861, but I'm note sure where. I've seen her name written as Alavine, but that appeared to be just bad penmanship. She shows up on the 1880 Sevier Co, AR, census with her mother Mandy Hudgins. Apparently no-one bothered to inform the census taker that other surnames were involved because everyone (including my gr-grandfather, James Willingham) was shown as Hudgins. The tape I found was a bit unclear, but it looked like both Sarah and Amanda were shown as divorced or widowed. Sarah went on to have at least four children: Louisa Jane Hankins, Archie Monroe Rodgers, Florence West, and James Eddie Chambers. Wish I DID have more info, but thanks for looking.
