I'm searching for my ggggrandfather who's last name was Preston( first name,birth and death date unknown).He moved to Vermont where I believe he met his wife(unknown).They had a daughter born Sarah Ann Preston in 1840 in Charlotte, Chittenden Co;VT.For some reason,Sarah was adopted by the Zubar Family.Sarah Ann married my gggrandfather Abraham Ploff on May 17,1858 in VT.Sarah died on Oct 28,1887 in Ferrisburg,VT.Any additional help would be appreciated.Thank you!

I have some Prestons from Napinka or Melita Manitoba, Canada - but do not recognize any of your names - although I do have an old bible with the name Sarah Preston written in it. Frank Preston - born 1896 in Napinka Manitoba married a Brandon in Canada. His Dad was Francis was born in 1856 , but I have no birthplace - I am assuming Manitoba since that is where his eldest son was born.

Hi again,
What information that I do have about Sarah Ann's parents is that the father was born in Canada and the mother was born in Vermont.My Ploof ancestors originated from Canada.

Sorry about the delay in response to your query dated 2009.

I am at a stand still(brick wall)in regards to Sarah's parents.I have not found out who Sarah's parents were. Still not sure if Sarah was a Preston or Ruston. Can't distinguish the "P" in Preston or if it's an "R" in Ruston.

Sarah & Abraham Ploof's children were:
Lavina
Amelia
Edwin
Sarah
Annette
Thurlow
Sylvester

Thank you.
