bullet  General Notes:

She was buried literally in the same grave at the same time as her sister-in-law, Lydia, wife of her brother John. An account of this is from "A Walk in a Country Churchyard Autumn 1880" by Luke Smith Mote, Transcribed from the Original MS, March 2000 by Bruce Barrington Abbott. @ * ,West Branch, Miami, Ohio, USA

West Branch Cemetery: "We must refer again to the old part of these grounds north of his grave, where a few were buried long since. We omitted mentioning -- A little southwest of Henry Fout's grave is a double grave; two small stones, roughly dressed, with the initials S. D. and L. D. marks the burial place of Lydia Davis and Sarah Davis, who were buried in this grave at the same time. They were sisters-in-law. Lydia was the wife of John Davis and daughter of Henry Coate; Sarah was daughter of Abiather Davis, unmarried; both were in prime of life, scarcely 35 years of age; last named was much concerned for her eternal welfare, often calling on [?] to have mercy on her and save her soul -- whilst languishing on her dying couch. She had much to say to the family present, her brothers and sisters, pleading with them to close in with the Lord's proffered love and mercy whilst it was yet extended to them; warning them also, if they did not and change their manner of life, they would be all be eternally lost (go to hell, as she expressed it). Lydia left four sons and a daughter." 1 2
