I am hoping someone can direct me towards local Park County resources to find more information on the above relative. I am researching Sarah Jane McKILLIGAN/McKILLICAN, previously BUXTON and previously maiden FISHER whom I believe died in Cody, Wyoming. Sarah also known as Sadie, was born January 04, 1856 Colborne Township, County of Huron, ON (Ontario), Canada to Joseph Fisher and Nancy Pannebecker. She married George Buxton born January 19, 1853 Goderich Township, Huron County, ON who died April 07, 1907 344 Maria St, Clinton, ON. The couple ran a hotel in Goderich and apparently had a son Louis who moved away. After George died Sarah moved to Cody, Wyoming where she shows up on 1910 census working in a local hotel as a housekeeper. The census entry is shown below, Two dates for here immigration are shown of 1908 and 1905. I believe the correct one is 1908. 1910 United States Federal Census Name: Sarah F Buxton Age in 1910: 43 Birth Year: abt 1867 [1867] Birthplace: Canada [Canada English] Home in 1910: Cody, Park, Wyoming Race: White Gender: Female Immigration Year: 1908 [1905] Relation to Head of House: Boarder Marital Status: Widowed Father's Birthplace: Canada [Canada English] Mother's Birthplace: Canada [Canada English] Neighbors: Household Members: Name Age Louis E Decker 50 Mary C Decker 53 Edward D Connery 33 Robert Velick 23 Jess Minson 22 Hilda Friedenberg 22 James Ellery 35 Sarah F Buxton 43 Marie Baumgartel 37 Flora Morrow 23 Lillas Schrader 40 Julia Lansing 40 Source Citation: Year: 1910; Census Place: Cody, Park, Wyoming; Roll: T624_1747; Page: 6A; Enumeration District: 0023; ; FHL microfilm: 1375760. Based on this Sarah was in Cody from 1908 to 1910. She apparently remarried some time after this an unknown McKilligan/McKillican and died sometime between then and 1924. She led a colorful life during this period and apparently joined Buffalo Bill Wild West show and did trick horse and pistol shooting as some of her props including a leather whip and silver spurs were sent to my great grandmother. 1924 is the best guess of living relatives. I couldn't find Sarah on 1920 census but she could have been travelling. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Contact Gerald
