If Sarah Ann's father was a man by the name of William Dews, we may have a link.My grandfather was fathered by a man named William Dews and a Black woman who's name was also Dews (They were not married). It is said that William had a daughter by the name of Sarah Ann and a son by the name of Edward. Not much was recorded because of the mixing of the races. I guess that's why I keep running into roadblocks while searching for my African-American family. I hope you have much success in your search.
