Sarah "Sally" Tweedell Barron
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 23, 1802
Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 11, 1880
Fulton County
Illinois, USA

Numerous versions of the surname Tweedell are found in historical documents. On Sarah's marriage record her name is given as Sally Tredwell; Because of the lack of documentation of Sarah's maiden name, her brother Mathew was researched. Both Sarah and Mathew's families left Kentucky and went to Illinois. On many documents, it is spelled Tweedell. There are exceptions of course. On the 1860 census it was Tweedwell and another place Twidwell. It seems the families in Illinois liked to use the double-e as opposed to the Georgia families using the single-e, Twedell.
Sarah's birth date is calculated from her date date of 11 Apr 1880 and her age of 77 yrs 6 mos 18 dys.
There has been much debate as to the birth place of Sarah. Even on the census, she cannot make up her mind. It varies from Kentucky to South Carolina with a little Virginia thrown in.
Some family tree information suggests Pittsylvania, Virginia........
1820 married in Kentucky.
