Sarah Jane Roberts1,2

ID#2710, b. 11 June 1859, d. 17 February 1925
Father: Alexander H. "Alec" Roberts
Mother: Lavina Ellen Ensminger

Birth date: 11 June 1859
Birth place: Wetzel County, Virginia.2,3

Emma Jones is listed as the maiden name of Sarah's mother on Sarah's death certificate. The informant on the death certificate is given as John Brookover, which I assume was Sarah's son. I have found no other info regarding an Emma Jones, but it's interesting to note that the maiden name of Sarah's paternal grandmother was Margaret Jones.3

Sarah married Abraham P. Brookover (Jr.?) on 16 June 1878 in Wetzel County, West Virginia. Samuel Hanen, a minister of the Christian Church, certified that he united them in marriage at Mrs. Roberts', the bride's mother.1

Sarah died at age 65 on 17 February 1925 at Anderson, Madison County, Indiana.3 She was buried on 20 February 1925 Anderson, Madison County, Indiana.3
