I would like to find some connection to an Anderson family who can tell me who Sarah's parents were.
Sarah Jane Anderson was my g,grandmother who was born March 17, 1848,Brownstown, Allegheny Co., PA. There is some evidence that her parents were from Ireland.
Sarah Jane died September 21, 1888, and is buried at the Monongahela Cemetery, Monongahela, Washington Co., PA. She was married to a John Jenkins b. 1848, Scotland who came to America with his parents in 1856.
The following were their children:
James O.Jenkins b. 1870 Eliza Caroline b. 1872 (died as an infant) John Jenkins b. 1874 m. Edith West Ella Jenkins b. 1875 m. Mr. Lynch Ida Jenkins b. 1878 m. William Garlick Robert Jenkins b. 1879 m.Sarah E. Barringer Sarah Jane(Sadie) b.1887 m. Mr. Wright
Note; John Jenkins, wife Edith West, and Ida Jenkins Garlick all lived in Charleroi, PA.
Robert Jenkins is my grandfather.
Since my dad talked of one of his ancestors owning riverboats that traveled the Monongahela River and Ohio River (Pittsburgh area), I have learned that there was a Capt. Anderson who owned riverboats; but, I don't know if this is my family.
Hopefully, someone on the Anderson forum can help me.
