    • Sarah "Sallie" Buckles Birt has been incorrectly reported as having died earlier in 1833 in Indiana, Cynthia M. Rice reports as follows:

      She was listed with her husband William in the 1850 Census of Rush Co, IN along with some of their Peterson grandchildren whose mother Nancy Birt Peterson had just died in June of 1850 (per Rush Co Mortality Index). Then, after her husband's death in August of 1859, Sarah Birt was found living for a time in 1860 back in Rush Co with her grandson Alfred Cowger and his younger siblings, orphaned children of Sarah's daughter Jane and James H. Cowger. Sarah was also found in the 1860 Census of Marion Co, IN living with her son David Heaton Birt.

      After her husband William Birt died in 1859 in Marion County, IN, Sarah apparently lived with different members of her family at different times, both in Rush and Marion Counties in Indiana, but eventually returned to Champaign Co, OH where several of her siblings still lived. She died on May 6, 1869 in Champaign County and was buried at the Upper Honey Creek Cemetery near Christiansburg.

      Tombstone:
      AUG 30, 1784 - MAY 6, 1869
      Aged 84y, 8m, 6d

      Note: Inscription is on the same stone as Louis & Jane (Buckles) Carmin. (Jane was her youngest sister).
