Sarah Pierce Addleman
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 12, 1762
Death: Apr. 26, 1844

Daughter of James & Hannah (Way) Pierce of Chester County, Penn., and wife of Joseph Addleman. She married Joseph Addleman of West Caln township, Chester County, in about 1786. They had ten children, all of whom were born in West Caln township.

After the death of his father in 1814, Joseph and his brother William moved with their families to Wayne County, Indiana. They migrated in stages during 1817 and 1828. In 1826, Sarah's sons, John M. and Caleb, accompanied by their sister Orpha, came to Wayne county. In 1828, Joseph brought the remainder of the family.

The family settled in Franklin township, near Richmond, on land that Joseph had purchased at the Cincinnati Land Office on June 25, 1827. On this land, he built a large, log farm house that was used as a stopping place on the Underground Railroad. The Addleman Farm remained in the family until the late 1940's. The house still stands today.

Sarah's sister Elizabeth and her husband Dr. John Thomas lived just across the road on the Thomas family homestead. The Thomas family had purchased their land in 1816. The Addleman and Thomas families were Quakers and attended the Woodbury Friends Meeting

Sarah lived to be 81 years of age. She died in Franklin township, preceding her husband in death by about 9 years.
