Sarah Ann Bechtel was the daughter of David and Elizabeth Harmon Bechtel.

Sarah married John Downend on February 10, 1859. They had four children:

Samuel (1859-1945) married Laura Houser
Clara (abt 1861-?) never married
Charles E. (abt. 1866 -?)

Much of the above is from "Our Ancestors, Havlik, LaHue, Ryman, Wisdom" by Laurence L. Wisdom now under the stewardship of Jan Lange. Laurence cites his source as Florence Downend Wakeland, grandaughter of Thomas Downend.

Note: Sarah was the sister of Mary J. Bechtel who married Thomas Downend, the brother of her husband John.
