Ohio, USA
Death: Sep. 27, 1940

Sarah, the second daughter of Thomas T. and Nancy Jane (Taylor) McLin, was born on a farm in Hocking County, OH. She passed away at the Community Hospital in Elk City, OK. After the War Between the States, in which her father served in the Ohio Infantry, the family moved to Kansas and settled on a farm near Holton in Jackson County. A few years later they moved to a farm near Soldier, also in Jackson County.

It was there that she was married to Alfred Ebright on Nov. 20, 1876. To them one child, Docia Ella, was born. Sadly, Mr. Ebright passed from this life on May 29, 1878. In order to care for herself and her daughter, Sarah took a position as housekeeper for a family at Holton.

On Sept. 6, 1880, she was married to James Kirk Latimer, the son of a neighboring farmer. They first lived on a farm near Holton, where their son, James Guy, was born. After moving to a farm near Mayetta, also in Jackson County, four more children were born: Thomas, Louise, Myrtle and Kirk.

In 1896 they migrated to a farm near Corbett, in Indian Territory, which became the State of Oklahoma in 1907. After several moves, the family finally settled on a farm four miles south of Foss, Washita County, OK. This was to be their permanent home and was known for miles around as Latimer Corner.

Sarah was a longtime member of the Church of the Brethren and when she passed from this life two ministers of that faith conducted her funeral service at the small Methodist Church building 3/4 mile west of their home and she was laid to rest in Page Cemetery, just across the road.


Surviving were her husband, of the home; three daughters, Ella Black and Myrtle Smith, of Lexington, OK and Louise Latimer of the home; two sons, Guy Latimer of Canute and Kirk Latimer of Foss; several brothers and sisters in Kansas; nine grandaughters and five grandsons. She was preceded in death by her parents, one son, Thomas, one granddaughter and two grandsons.
