Roberta - Thanks for the information on Sarah's parents.
In "Grant Co. In., Obituaries & Survivors, 1867-1894" book - it states that Sarah Imes HAINES obiturary was published on Jan 2 and Jan 4 of 1889. So she must have died in Dec. of 1888 - rather than 1889.
By the way - you wouldn't happen to know where I can find a copy of the Nathan HAINES family manuscript that he wrote prior to 1888?It is referenced in the DAR records and a couple of other places.
