Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Sarah E. Buckberrough was born in 1854 at Windham Twp, Norfolk County, Ontario.1 She was the daughter of James Coleman Buckberrough and Rachel Smith.1 She married Noah S. Bowman on 2 April 1878 at Waterford, Ontario. (notes: 007035-78 Waterford, Norfolk Co. Noah S. Bowerman, age 30, residence Waterloo County, Ontario, born Woolwich Twp., bachelor, cheese maker, parents Jacob and Mary Bowerman. Sarah Buckborrough, age 24, born and residing Windham, spinster, parents James and Rachael Buckborrough. Witnesses: Lewis Beemer and Rebecca Beemer, both of Waterford. The groom was United Brethern and the bride was Methodist. Clergyman: Rev. A. Slaght. April 2, 1878, at Waterford.

Evidence is that James Bowman, father of Noah S. Bowman, was properly named Jacob Solomon Bowman. Since Bowman was in rather more common usage in the family, this is used in this tree.).1
The 1901 census in Wilmot Twp. in Waterloo Co. shows Sarah as being born on Oct. 12, 1852. The 1871 census in Windham Twp. in Norfolk Co. shows her as being 17 and the 1881 census in Saugeen, Bruce Co. shows her as being 27. This tree shows her birth as Oct. 12 1854, but this is approximate and 1853 may be closer to it.

Death information for Sarah has not been found and her place of burial is presently unknown. Her presence with the family in Wilmot Township in 1901, with husband Noah and son Mervyn and daughter Blanch, is clear enough. Noah appears in the 1911 census with wife 'Maggie' and what has happened with this record is not clear. We do know that Sarah crossed the border into Michigan with her younger sister, Laura Wilcox, in 1916. They were en route to visit with brother John Buckborough in Coleman, Michigan. In 1921 we find Sarah travelling, apparently alone, to visit with brother John Buckborough in Lodi, California. In both the 1916 and 1921 records, Sarah gives son Mervyn as a contact in New Dundee, Ontario. To date, the 1921 record is the last that we have found for Sarah.1
