I show James to be born around 1828 and Sarah to have been born in 1858.
James was supposed to have married an Anna Owens. They had more than one child but had Sarah Lucinda in 1858 in Illinois.
My Mother once told me that she had preachers in her family.
Sarah Lucinda married James Sanford August 31, 1887 in Calhoun County Illinois. He was 19 years older than her. They had two children, Sheridan and Joshua. Sheridan died sometime before marring age.
Sarah collected a Civil War widow's pension for James service in the Union Army, under General Sheridan.
Sarah and James also lived in Louisiana, Missouri. James is buried there.
I seem to recall that Sarah's family moved to Missouri, but I could be wrong on that.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
