Dear Grace (and others), Your message shows that you have a Sarah Elizabeth HAWK that lived/died in Newton County, MO.I am very interested to know more about your Sarah. I am a direct descendant of a Sarah E. Hawk, b. abt. 1839 in Arkansas (according to the 1860 census for Barry Co., MO) and was married to a James L. Wood (Sr.).As stated above, they were living in Barry County, MO in 1860 not far from Newton County where James later moved (his father and family were living there).I believe that my Sarah died around 1863 but, have little evidence to back this theory up. What cemetery is your Sarah buried in? -- Is she buried under the name Hawk or Wood?
Would love to hear from you.Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your time.
