Sarah E. (Roach)

The daughter of Abraham and Martha (Dupree), Sarah E. Roach was born in Alabama in about 1839. Family stories say Sarah had been the nurse of Ned's first wife Priscilla who had been sickly the last years of her life, and that after her death Sarah married the widower Ned in Hopkins, Red River Co., Texas.

At the time of their marriage, which occurred on 11 Mar 1858, Sarah was eighteen and Ned was sixty-two. Their first child Joseph was born the first year of their marriage, but their second child Martha would not be born for another eleven years. Her birth was then followed by Ada, Benjamin and Charley Tisdale - the youngest having been born seven months after the death of his father who died on 15 Jan 1878 in Denton Co., Texas.

On 22 Feb 1880, Sarah married James Taylor. She died 30 Dec 1927 in Dawson Co., Texas and at the time of her death was living with her son Benjamin.
