Subject: Sarah Berkshire 1854-1887

I am looking for information on my 2nd great grandmother and her family. Sarah Berkshire was born 10 Jun 1854 in Ohio. She married James O Cochran 16 Nov 1871. According to the 1860 Census, Sarah's father is listed as Anson Berkshire. Here's where it gets confusing. There were two Anson Berkshires in Coshocton County in 1860. I suspect the two Ansons are related. My 3rd great Grandfather Anson's spouse is Mary McLeon, not the Anson whose spouse was Martha Jane Meledy. Any information would be appreciated.
