I'm looking for Sarah Frances Lunsford, b.1823-25. So far, she's turned up as the witness to Deacon Rawleigh Dunaway's will (and a subsequent revision), dated 1846-8. She was also listed as a beneficiary in her grandmother's will (Frances Everette Hutchins Carter Dunaway -- Deacon R's 2nd wife) in the year 1848. I am assuming she resided the home of her grandparents until their death in 1848.

After, she turns up in the 1850 US census, in Lancaster County, VA, in the home of her step-aunt, Kitty A Dunaway Gresham.

Come 1860, the Gresham household is still there, but Sarah Frances is not. Without success I've scanned the homes of her relations in the 1860 and 1870 census. The next time she turns up is in the home of her brother, John Linton Lunsford in Charleston, SC, in 1880. She appears to have remained unmarried through this, her 55-57th year.

I'm looking for 1860 and 1870 census data to better establish her birth year. Also, I would welcome any further information on her.
