    Research 
    • Based upon the children listed in the 1840 census, there may have been a daughter and son not known in addition to the eleven known children of Sarah and George. One boy and one girl are both unaccounted for from that census. There is a boy aged 10-15 in the 1830 census, too, who probably is not theirs, as they had only been married 3 years at that time.
