Sarah Trotter and Absolom Sivils Family

I know very little about Sarah Trotter and nothing about her parents.

A cemetery transcription says that her husband's brother Wallis Sivils married her sister Jane, but this is contradicted by Wallis and Jane's son's biography. See: Goodspeed Tipton County Biographies, noted 24 August 2004.

Sarah's husband seems to have died before 1850. She died sometime after the 1880 census. Her census records show a woman constantly dependent and constantly on the move.

In 1850 it appears that she is living with her in-laws.
Elizabeth Sivils Perry and Jefferson Sivils were likely her husband's siblings:
