Note from Knollin Family Manuscript: "Sarah Richards Knollin came to America from Devonshire with her parents in 1827. She married a David Ehle. Died on March 26, 1848. Sarah and her brother Richard Mortimor were twins."

Sarah's death is tragically depicted in a letter written to her sister Rhoda and her husband by Sarah's twin brother, Richard Mortimer Knollin II (Letter to Wm Hood, Syracuse, Onandago Co, NY from R.M. Knollin in Sandy Creek, March 27, 1848). The letter appears to have been started on March 25th and mailed on the 27th:

"Sandy Creek, Mar 27 (1848)

Wm Hood
Onandago Co
