sources vary here.

We have:
1) Rachel (married Richard Strait)
2) Susannna (married Nathan Woodberry)
3) Agnes (married John W Tharp II)
4) Bethany (adopted married David Tharp)
5) Rhoda (married William Carey)
6) Elizabeth (married a Reed but no first name)
7) Naomi (married Caleb Shreve)

I believe the Sarah that Kathryn mentioned was from the 1850 census and was likely a grand daughter of James and Sarah. The first Sarah would have been 52 when the younger Sarah was born.

Naomi had a family bible which list her parents marriage.
Sarah is buried in the cemetery with Naomi.

Thanks for the information. Can you tell me more about Bethany and Elizabeth. I don't have either of them as children of James and Sarah. Does Naomi's family bible say when and where her parents were married? Where are Naomi and Sarah buried? Do you know when and where Sarah died?
