Sarah E. Aston

ID#2021, b. February 1870, d. 3 February 1875
Father: Joseph Aston
Mother: Catharine Rebecca "Kate" Manning

Birth date: February 1870.1 An alternate date of birth would be 02 June 1866 based on the Find-A-Grave information that reports her age at death was 8/8/1. However, I believe this is probably incorrect based on the 1870 U.S. census that reported she was only 5 months old and had been born in February. It's harder to accept the misreporting of a newborn than the misreporting of gravestone info.2
Birth place: West Virginia.1

Sarah died on 3 February 1875.2 Sarah's body was interred in the Macedonia Cemetery, Wetzel County, West Virginia.2
