HI - I am working on my family tree. Is there any way to find out her maiden name or the names of her parents?
Thank you.

RE: Anna Maria Sadler

The Beaver county Argus newspaper had a blurb on 18 Nov 1831

"Michael Sadlor died 6th inst., a soldier of the Revolution, aged 90, at the residence of his son in law, George Hasps, Shenango Twp."

Another Lawrence county, PA history book from the 1870s said that Michael Sadler (1741-1831) was "buried in the original Jerusalem Reformed Church cemetery which is now destroyed."

George Herbst, built a "rude log structure" church around 1825 on his farm that became that church. (After reorganizing in 1862, the congregation built a brick church a mile and a half west, both structures later burned down.) The family plot became the church cemetery and eventually the became the Pleasant a Valley Cemetery in Lawrence county. (Not the one of the same name in Mercer about 15 miles east-northeast.) By 1872, it was the Dombaugh farm and some graves had been relocated.

There isn't a lot to distract teenagers in the area from mischief. For many decades, desecrating grave yards & stealing headstones from private cemeteries and dumping them in the lakes was common. I haven't lived there since the '80s... It may STILL be common teenage stupidity.

As for Michael Sadler (1777-1842), I realize that records say he died in Beaver county. But Lawrence was formed from parts of Mercer & Beaver on 20 Mar 1849. And George Herbst didn't die until that year. So I expect Sadler was buried in the family plot with his father when the church & county were in disarray. But that's pure supposition.

JOHN TAYLOR (1837-1862)
I believe one of the children might also be JOHN TAYLOR (5 FEB 1837-10 MAY 1862) who married Sarah Jane Stevenson (20 MAY 1837 - 21 JUL 1921). JOHN and his wife are buried at Mount Hermon.

Oh, also...
Ella-- Find A Grave Memorial# 128855862 is also in the same family lot as the stones you photographed.
Cemetery records only list a burial date. No age or cause of death. I see the person managing that memorial has input the burial month/year as a death date, but thatís an iffy proposition with all the old time body shuffling in Cleveland.
Just an FYI

RE: Cunard Change
Thank You for making the link!

Also, Thank You for the offer on the Thompson branch but right now I'm not working on that [heavy] branch, however, I'll keep your offer in mind for later...although I do have a question...

Do you know if it was Leila Cunard or Eunice Cunard that was the teacher?
