thank you for all of this, but this is why I wrote such a simple request at the beginning, I didn't want my research redone, as I have all of this. as I said, I cannot find Sarah and William's birth, marriage or death.
they moved to Butler and then to Blackhawk. sometime in that period, Sarah Jane Moffit m. William Allen. by 1866 they were dead and their children were being raised by her parents.
what happened to Sarah and William? I find a too early death of a Sarah and William Allen from a tornado, and nothing else. it's too early because it's before our Sarah and William's children were born.
