Looking for info on my GGG-grandmother. She is mentioned in the 1896 History of Rockport OH as Sally Knowles who married Alvah Landphair.Believe her name could have been Sarah Jane. Eleven children-5 sons, six daughters. They arrived from Brookfield NY.
From censuses the children are:Lydia (1818 NY), Lander (1820 NY), Mary E. (1827 NY), Leroy (1832 OH), Lucy (1838 OH), Alva (1840 OH), James M. (1843 OH). Welcome D. (W.D. Landphair/Landfair) might be a son. Would love to exchange info with anyone affiliated with this line.
Sally is last mentioned as Sarah Landphair, age 60, born in NY, parents born in NY -- in the 1860 Rockport OH census as living with her daughter Mary and Mary's husband Philip Cannon.
In particular, I'm looking for info on Sarah/Sally's parents and siblings and death/burial. She is rumored to be part Native American (her mother or father would have to be full-blood -- I assume it's not the father because of the name Knowles...), but it's probably just a rumor.
