Dear Mary;I don't know if this is the same Sarah Dejournett Cropper or not.In the 1850 census in Moultrie Co., Il. Macajah Phillips 55 yrs., old and Sarah Dejournett Phillips 37 years old were listed and they had John Cropper 14, Julian Cropper12, Sevilla Cropper8, Andrew Phillips 4 and Paulina Phillips age 2.Paulina was my great grandmother. I don't know if the Cropper she was married to died or they divorced..I do know Macajah P. raised the three Cropper children as his own and they liked him.Also they were very poor.When Paulina married Joseph Wiley, neither set of parents were happy. The Phillips thought the Wileys were a wild bunch and the Wileys thought the Phillips were too poor. My Grandmother Paulina Wiley lived to be around 90 and I was 18 when she died so I remember her very well.
