Going on a piece of info, namely a marriage date for a James W. Orchard and Sarah Jane Creech in NM, I am now starting to search the Creech line.
In the 1900 census for Hillsboro, NM, it lists a Sarah Orchard-hotel keeper and James Orchard on the same page but 4 houses away. According to this census, Sarah claims to be from England as was her father. Her mother was from Wales. She says she came to America in 1870 and NM in 1886.
I have a picture of her from an old postcard which describes her as a stage coach driver and later hotel and brothel owner. Does anyone want to claim this gal? I am thinking her husband come from my line of MO Orchards as he listshis birth place (and both parents) as MO.
Does anyone know of this lady and who her parents were?
