George F. was born near Sonierton, Behuont County, Ohio, and Thomas
and Mary A. were born near Nottingham, Wells County, Indiana.
Mr. and Mrs. Sawyer located in Somerton, Belmont County, Ohio, soon
after their marriage, living there until about October — ,.1847, when they moved to Jay County, Indiana, and shortly after settled near Nottingham, Wells
County, Indiana, where they were engaged in farming. After the death of Mrs.
Sawyer Mr. Sawyer moved to Nebraska, and at the time of his death was living
with his son, George F., in Western, Saline County, Nebraska.
Mrs. Sawyer was of Welsh, English and Irish, and Mr. Sawyer of Scotch
descent. The latter's ancestors emigrated to Ireland from Scotland during
some of the troublesome times in that country. Mr. Sawyer was educated and
grew to manhood in the neighborhood of Beragh postoffice, Ireland, taught a
term or two of school, after which he came to America. He landed at Vine
Street Wharf, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the summer of 1840. After travel-
ing about through Pennsylvania for some time he finally settled near Somerton, Belmont County, Ohio, where he studied medicine w'ith Dr. Schooley, an eminent physician of that place.

This from the Thomas Sawyer page:
"Mr. and Mrs. Sawyer, accompanied by the former's sister Mary Ann,
removed to Saline County, Nebraska, soon after their marriage, where they
have since resided. Their first home was a "dugout," eight by ten feet. Mr.
Sawyer says, "It was rather small, but as it was the first home we could call
our own, we were very proud of it. Our furniture consisted of two stools, cook
stove and one bedstead, the latter being made by driving poles into the wall.
In May, 1876, we moved to Dorchester, of the same county, where three years
later I went into the drug business, having spent the ten years prior to this time in teaching in the public schools. A little later I traded my drug business for a half interest in a general merchandising store, and soon sold that and
resumed my former occupation, teaching. In April, 1883, we removed to a farm, remaining there until 1900. I had been nominated for sheriff in our county in August, 1899, by the fusion party and gained the election by one hundred and eighty-three votes, after a long, hard fought campaign. Not a very great majority, but sufficient to entitle me to hold the office two years, so I made preparations to leave the farm and moved my family to Wilber, county seat of Saline County, a place of one thousand three hundred inhabitants. At the expiration of my term of office I was renominated and elected by six hundred majority.
I have always been blessed with the best of health. "
