Since Lawrence Twp. in located in Washington Co., Ohio, where Sarah was married, we can presume that she was likely born there, too.Census records reveal the following, which I presume is the same family:
- 1850 Census, Marietta Ward 2, Washington Co., OH, David Skinner, p. 186B, #148/153, 9 Aug 1850, age 38, laborer, $100, b. OH; Sarah A., age 38, b. OH; Henry S., age 14, attends school, b. OH; Charity J., age 13, attends school, b. OH; Charlotte C., age 10, attends school, b. OH; Dudley D., age 7, attends school, b. OH; Anne M., age 5, attends school, b. OH; Fidelia, age 2, b. OH; Baby, age 1/12, b. OH
So, assuming this is the right family (which you should be able to confirm), Sarah was born about 1812.The 1820 Census for Lawrence Twp. lists the following family with what appears to be five daughters and three sons:
- Henry Chamberlain, p. 226: 21001-3201 (age 26-45), 1 person engaged in Agriculture
Henry is also listed in Washington Co., OH, town not listed, in 1810, but not in 1800:
- Henry Chamberlaine, p. 001: 10010-20010 (age 26-45)
This Henry Ch'n remains unidentified in my research records here, but I'd like to learn more about him and his children.
The only family listed in 1830 in Lawrence Twp. is the following person who might be related somehow - perhaps Henry's mother:
- Jane Chamberlain, p. 359: 00001-001100001 (age 60-70)
That's all I can quickly come up with.I recommend that you search in biographical records, cemetery records, vital, land and other records in Washington Co., Ohio, to see what else you can learn about this particular family.There are several other families listed in census records in Washington Co., OH, some of whom have been identified.
