The Shinny on Sarah Palmater who married James Boomhauer (Boomhower, Boomhour) is that she is a daughter of Caton Edmund Palmateer and Elitha Ann Varty.
There is rumour though and it is possibly true, that Caton Edmund had another daughter named Sarah who never really lived with Caton`s family. She was supposedly born outside of the marriage to a Mohawk Woman but this is unconfirmed.
However, the Sarah that marries James Boomhower could not list her mother or her father on the marriage certificate. This sort of backs up the claim she was an illegitimate child born outside the marriage. She was always living with another family come Census time.
