Birth: Aug., 1835
Adams County
Illinois, USA
Death: Nov. 21, 1902
Adams County
Illinois, USA

Daughter of Thomas and Nancy. Wife of Alvin F Murrah, and mother of 2 children, Elida was born in 1859, and Adella was born in 1862, both in Adams County, Illinois.

She married John L. Grigsby on July 20, 1869 in Adams County, Illinois and they had 3 children together, Viola, John, and Grace.


From Vol. I. Chapter XXI. Centennial celebrations and histories, Quincy and Adams County History:

Sarah A. married Alvin Murrah to whom were born two daughters, Elida and Adella. After the death of Mr. Murrah she married to John Grigsby, to whom were born three children, Viola, Grace, and John L. Viola died in infancy, Grace lives in San Jose, California, and John L. adjoining the Village of Coatsburg.


I am trying to prove she is buried in Gray Cemetery, Coatsburg, Adams County, Illinois, but I'm not having any luck.
