Sarah's mother Hannah Ashton McDaniel and aunt Sarah Ashton Walton were orphaned as young Ashton children during the 1793 yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia and raised by their late mother's New Jersey Quaker relatives, the Andrewses. This Sarah's aunt Sarah remained Quaker while Hannah's family seemed to take a Baptist flavor. Simon and Sarah McDaniel Redifer were married by a Unitarian pastor but their daughter Anna (the only one whose church documents survive) attended Christ Episcopal church.
Sarah and Hannah Ashton's parents were Joseph and Elizabeth Parker Ashton of Philadelphia, both of whom are listed in DAR records for supportive (rather than combat) service. Elizabeth -- and presumably her husband -- are buried at the Arch Street burying ground that has no markers. The couple (this Sarah's grandparents) had three children who also died in the plaque.
Simon and Sarah Andrews McDaniel Redifer had five children:
Andrew Perry Sr., an engineer who later took over his father's shoe last business, and the only one in the household group to marry.
Amelia Virginia (who died in infancy and has no tombstone)
Americus Melville, an unmarried Civil War veteran leg-amputee who lived his later years with brother Andrew Perry and his family.
Anna Elizabeth, an unmarried Penn State University professor and family genealogist
Ida Cecelia, unmarried, who lived her later years with brother Andrew Perry and his family.
Sarah's siblings were:
* Joseph Ashton McDaniel (1809-1866, Kensington Union/West Street)
* Elizabeth McDaniel Calver (1811-1853, Kensington Union/West Street)
* Benjamin Walton McDaniel (1817-1877, Odd Fellows)
* 3 infants, James Alexander, Sarah Ann, William Andrews, all at John Street Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, where their father is. We don't yet know where Hannah Ashton McDaniel (1789-1856) is buried.
According to cemetery records, Sarah died of "senile debility."
