Sarah was born in North Carolina 27 Feb 1776 (per tombstone) and
married Edward POER 1795.  They had 13 children.  They had land on
Deep River in Guilford Co NC.  Edward died in late 1827 and is
buried in Old Union Cemetery in Guilford Co.  In 1832 Sarah packed
up the younger children and moved to Indiana, perhaps living in
Henry Co IN before finally settling in Shelby Co IN.  She died 1870
at age 94 and is buried in Blue River Chapel Cemetery. 

She is buried in a Quaker cemetery (Edward is not) but neither she
nor Edward have been found in any of the Quaker records.  No
obituary has been found. 

She had land in North Carolina and she had married children living
nearby so there is no obvious reason for her to move to Indiana
unless it was to be with other family members, but no connection
has been made. 

Numerous queries have been posted in both North Carolina and
Indiana without result.
