I have been looking at Peter Hilliker as a son of Samuel Hilliker Sr. An old genealogy that has come to my attention that suggests that Peter is Samuel's son (wife's name not given). It also mentions two other children, John Hilliker who married Henrietta Stafford, and Eleanor Hilliker who married a "Stafford." This was John Stafford and Eleanor Hilliker who were my ggg-grandparents.
I note that the census appears to have Peter Hilliker married three times. In 1850 he is married to Samantha. In 1860 Peter is married to Emily. It looks like Emily was married before as there are some step-children (surname Wilcox) living in the household. In 1870 and 1880 he is married to Lucinda.
My question is... where does the Sarah Stafford information come from? Would it have been from Alfred's death record? If so, I am hoping that you wouldn't mind posting the particulars.
I have been trying to put together John Stafford's siblings and Sarah could be another sister. John's father left no will and so it has been difficult to piece the family together. If I had some context for Sarah, I might be able to place her.
