I have a single source that states that her maiden name was McElroy.In 1970 she lived in Dallas Texas. She is living in the residence of Benjamin Muckelroy. age 29.and Marhta age 34.There is also an Elizabeth Muckelroy age 60. On that census She is listed as Amanda Wright. However it is believed that her name was Sarah Amanda.
At the time of the 1870 Census she is listed as Amanda Wright. and has a one year old son named Thomas.She is 23 years old.
The head of household Benjamin Muckelroy shows Texas as his birthplace. 60 Year old Elizabeth shows Missouri as her birth place.
I hope that this is not sounding too tangled. I do not know the name of her first (Wright) husband, but her second husband was Francis Marion White. They were married in Hays County Texas 27 May, 1874.
There was another Sarah in Bee County Texas with a son named Thomas and her age I believe is the same. So I am very uncertain right now about which leads to follow.
There is also the possibility that Sarh may not have been one of her names, in fact Amanda Ella is a possibility.
