Sarah Jane Powell's Timeline

October 26, 1799
United States

Census records for Sarah Powell consistently give year of birth as 1800 OR 1802, and location as Ohio. This period would have been before Ohio statehood, but I take it to imply it was in the Northwest territory.

Age 22
Age 33
Ohio, United States
Age 41
Ohio, United States
Age 56
Ohio, United States
Age 80
Sherman, Texas, United States

I am accepting that Sarah Powell listed on 1880 census in Sherman, TX as Sarah McCloud. In addition to names of children shown born in Ohio living in Arkansas on 1850 census (where Jacob was said to have moved, and where Judge Wm was said to have had descendants) the 1880 census gives Sarah Powell's places for parents births as Ireland and Pennsylvania - a match for Judge Wm and Elizabeth Boswell McCloud.

While I believe I am certain, I expect a record exists for one of the Powell children that gives mother's maiden name.
