    Sarah Jane was born 1848 in Mo (probably Madison County. She was probably named for her mother's sister, Jane Brewer.
    Her mother had another sister, Eliza who married Wm. Sampson Huddleston and lived in Oregon Co. In 1863 when Sarah was 15, she married John Willard, whom she probably met on a visit to her aunt Eliza's. Her sister, Mary Louisa, had also married a man from Oregon Co in 1861.
    Sarah and John lived in Oregon Co, Mo. All 11 children were born there.

    Sarah?s mother had her last child the same month as Sarah had her first baby.
    Sarah had her last baby in Jan 1890. Her oldest son Joe had his first child in Feb 1890.
    She did an amazing job as a mother. She had 11 children and all of them lived to adulthood!

    In the 1900 census Sarah said that she had had 12 children, 10 living (Telitha died bef 1900 as a young mother). One must have been stillborn or died as a baby that I don?t know about.

    Their last days together John and Sarah lived in Brandsville (just across the county line in Howell Co.). Sarah died there in 1909, at the age of 60 (her tombstone at Jolliff Cemetery incorrectly reads 1832-1908).
