I am looking for information on a Sarah Oxford.She was born on December 26, 1843, according to her death certificate but on the censuses she would have been born in 1844. Some information states she was born in Johnson County, Illinois but a census record that I found (not completely sure but it is the only one that has Sarah in the age range that fits the 1843/1844 timeline) states she was born in Kentucky.
If the previous mentioned census is the correct one, her parents were Daniel Oxford,b. 1805 in North Caroline and Mary ?? b. Kentucky.
She married Francis Spang/Spong in Calhoun County, Illinois in Sept 1863.Sarah died in 1883 from Typhoid fever and buried in Calhoun County.
The above mentioned census was 1850 Lamar Texas census.
ANY information about this family or possible leads would be greatly appreciated.I have contacted the Johnson County, Illinois Genealogical Society but they do not have any information on the family.I am in the process of contacting Union and Jackson counties in Illinois to see if they have anything.
Thanks in advance for any help... Oh and according to my great aunt that did some research she states that Sarah was of Native American descent.
