Smallwood, Sarah (1815–1895)

Sarah had a longlasting relationship with James Smallwood following the death of his wife, Ann in 1838. It appears that James and Sarah never married, perhaps because it was not known what became of Sarah's husband Abraham Myers/Meyers. Some say that Sarah had been forced by her parents to marry Myers and that she had run away on their wedding night.
