|Note||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. 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, which indicates that she intended to reside in California, is the last record found for Sarah.
