d. 18 November 1855, Wapello County, Iowa

Children with John McCullough:

  • Elizabeth (b. 1839)
  • George (b. 1840)
  • Charles (b. 1842)
  • William (b. 1842)
  • James (b. 1844)
  • Charles Elliott (b. 1846)
  • Jannette (b. 1849)
  • Margaret (b. 1853)

Sarah immigrated to Scott County, Indiana, from Shelby County, Kentucky, in 1831 and emigrated from Sharpsville, Tipton County, Indiana, to Page County, Iowa, in 1884.

Sarah and her husband John helped in the raising of Hopewell Church, two miles east of Vienna, Scott County, Indiana. The couple owned a farm of 120 acres in Scott County, Indiana, another near Little York, Indiana, and 160 acres in Mahaska County, Iowa. In the fall of 1855, John went to see his Iowa land but became ill with cholera and died there in Wapello County, Iowa.

Sarah raised her six children as well as two other fatherless children and managed to add to the estate left to her by her husband. She remained a member of Hopewell Church until the congregation decreased so much it couldn’t support a minister.

In 1884, Sarah moved with her daughter and son-in-law, Dennis Sands, to Page County, Iowa. But in 1902, they returned to Indiana to live in Sharpsville, Tipton County, Indiana. At the time of her death, Sarah was supposedly the oldest woman in the county.
