Hi Cookie. I am searching for Sarah A. McLellan. She was wife of Edgar McLellan who was Captain of Brig Rio Grande stationed out of boothbay. He died at sea June 1, 1873. He was adopted, but I do not know by which McLellan. But I know he is buried at sea.
I also am searching for "when" his wife Sarah A. McLellan died, and "where" she is buried, and I'm thinking in Gorham, because a lot of McLellan's came from there. She was listed in 1920 census of Livermore Town Maine at age 84, as a boarder. I am wondering if she is buried with her son Edward A. McLellan, and I do not know when/where he was born.
If you need more detailed info, ask, because searching from afar is very difficult. I would not know where to begin.
I'm wondering if she could be buried with her son but her name be on the back-side ? does that happen ? I mean she died in teh 20th century, and not finding her is rare.
I had somebody check the archives for me, and nothing under McLellan, unless her last name was mis-spelled.
Any help you offer would be appreciated. Finding out the adoption notice (court somewhere?) would be awesome. But I'm asking so much here. pick and choose?
