I found Sarah Wishard living with the family of Jacob DeVault in 1880. She was age 18 and listed as a boarder. Jacob DeVault was age 59, b. Ohio, his father b. VA, his mother born in PA. His wife Margaret was age 55, b. Ohio, her father b. VA, her mother b. Ohio. Son Geo. W. was age 21, born in Ohio. Daughter Mary E. age 18, b. Ohio and daughter Dora age 16, b. Ohio. Dora would marry Sarah's brother Henry later that same year. Anna DeVault who had an illegitimate daughter by Henry's brother George was probably a sister to Dora though I could not find Anna in 1880 in the census - Jacob testifited on behalf of Anna that George had told him he was the father of the child.

Buried in IOOF Cemetery in Bloomfield.
