Sarah Ann (Husted) Buzzard

Birth:  1828
            Coshocton County, Ohio

Died:  1899
           McDonough County, Illinois


She was the daughter of Caleb and Phebe (Purdy) Husted, and she was the wife of David Buzzard, a farmer, who was born in Pennsylvania about 1817. They were married Feb 26, 1849 in McDonough County. Several of their children were born in Iowa: Franklin about 1858, Timothy about 1860, Elvira in 1862, and Daniel in1865. Their youngest child, Peter, was born in Illinois in 1867.

The World Family Tree database on Ancestry.com shows two additional children for this couple, Clarinda (born 1850) and Simon (born 1856) both born in McDonough County, IL, but they do not appear on any census records for the family.

Sarah's brothers Talmon and Amos are also buried in this cemetery in graves close to her own.  Her parents died in McDonough County and are possibly also interred in this cemetery.

The photo of her tombstone was taken in March 2008.  As of May 2010, this stone has been toppled forward by the cows roaming through the cemtery.
