SarahRobertsonI believe the one on the left is Sarah Benetta Robertson. Face appears to be the same as the one that had her name on the picture. I do not know if the other one is her daughter (Eliza Ann Wilson b. 1855. Eliza married William J. Rogers in 1876.) or a sister? Or, it could have been her daughter by first marriage. (Nancy Jane Martin b. 1838. Married Eli Gurganus in 1859 using name of Nancy Jane Wilson -- Wilson was her step-father's name) Courtesy of Martha Wilson GuayRobertson, Rogers, Wilson, Martin, Gurganus
SarahBRobertsonThis is Sarah Benetta Robertson. She is my g-g-grandmother. She married 4 times. 1) George Martin m. abt. 1838 2) Thomas or Samuel Wilson m. abt. 1848 3) John Johnson m. abt. 1857 4) Thomas Adams m. abt. 1860 I have a loose leaf binder with the genealogy works of one of the Adams descendants. In it is family information about the names of the people that I listed on the previous email that I sent tonight. The above picture is one of the copies of pictures from that binder. Some of the pictures that I will send from the album appear to be of Sarah. Courtesy of Martha Wilson GuayWilson, Martin, Johnson, Adams
