LOW, Sarah A. age 5/12, female, KY
(I don't believe that Mary and Sarah are the children of James and Marie. I believe they are grandchildren and that Isabella may possibly be their mother. Which would make Isaac an Uncle to the two girls and not their brother. Ann Marie LOW would have been over 50 years old when Mary and Sarah were born. It is not impossible but highly unlikely.)
