In memory of Sarah E. Myer Francis.

Sarah E. (Myer) Francis was born in Cayuga County, New York and was the daughter of Thomas Broadhead Myer and Lydia Ann Fiero.
After marrying George Blakeslee Francis in 1865, they lived on a farm in York, Livingston County, New York. The photo to the right is dated 1889 from a studio in Canastota, New York. She may have been visiting family, because by 1885 they'd moved west to Ponca, Dixon, Nebraska.
Sarah and George appear in the 1900 census, but he passed later that year.

They suffered the loss of at least three children. Their first child, Thomas Edward, was born in 1866 and only lived one month. Third child, daughter Mary Lois Francis was born 1870, and died in 1871. These two graves have not been found.

George, wife Sarah, and remaining children Austin and Anne moved to Ponca Nebraska by 1885. Anne passed away in 1892.
George and Sarah both appear in the 1900 census but he died later that year.

The only child who lived to adulthood was Austin.

Sarah, George and daughter Anne E. Francis are likely buried together, in a Ponca Nebraska cemetery, but so far I've been unable to locate them.
