  • Name Sarah Grant 
    Born 23 Aug 1829  Victory, Cayuga, New York, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    • Sarah's obituary in the Syracuse Daily Journal in 1897 lists her birth year as August 1812, which appears to be a typographical error. All of her census records and other notes about her funeral put her birth year sometime around 1829.
    Gender Female 
    Census 1830  Victory, Cayuga, New York, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [3
    • In 1830, only the heads of households were listed by name, with everyone else recorded just by their current age. The census lists David's household as having 1 male under the age of 5, one male aged 10-15, one male 30-40 (David), one female under the age of 5 (Sarah), and one female 30-40 (Salome).

      The identities of the two boys are unknown at this time; the one aged 10-15 seems too old to have been their child (perhaps a nephew or younger brother?), but the one under the age of 5 could be a currently unknown son.

    • Six people are enumerated in David's household in this census, but as in earlier censuses only the head of household is identified by name in 1840.

      There is one male child under the age of 5 (Franklin), one male age 10-15 (likely the same unknown child who was enumerated in 1830), one male age 30-40 (possibly a farm laborer?), one male age 40-50 (David), one female child age 10-15 (Sarah) and one female age 40-50 (Salome).
