Re: Eacret Family in Clermont County, Ohio
For some time i've tried to locate information on Sarah Eacret, born about 1817 in Ohio, possibly Clermont County.
She married Samuel Martin, a blacksmith, in Clermont County, Ohio, on 25 March 1838; their marriage was entered in that county's register on 21 May 1838.
Sarah and Samuel eventually moved to Indiana, and both died there within six months of each other in Indiana, in Shelby County. Sarah died on 3 Feb 1890; Samuel followed on 13 Aug, 1890. They were both 73 in that year.
They had one child we're sure of, William Martin, born 18 June 1860.
I think that some of my difficulty in finding Sarah has been that her name was pronounced and spelled "Eckerd," on her son, William Martin's, certificate of death. However, when my mom found the entry of Sarah and Samuel's marriage in Clermont County's register, Sarah's last name is clearly spelled "Eacret."
Does anyone have information on Sarah Eacret? I'd sure love to hear from you.
