I found it odd that Sarah Eacott was identified as being married and a widow in the 1880 census. Hopefully there are other newspaper accounts on a trial for the incident involving Thomas Eacott which could have been somewhere
other than Brown county. I personally believe Thomas K was his daughter so he may have been acquitted, returned home and died 1878 - 1880.

I have a great aunt named Tommie, after her father Thomas, who died before she was born in 1893.

Cora Blanche Eacott Madison is buried in Brown County, July of 1913 but cemetery was not named. She was already widowed by the time the 1900 census was taken and am surprised a death record was filed considering the
year. I also now find that she married Chas. G. Madison a 2nd time in Brown Co 16 Oct 1895.
