Here in Part 2, we revisit 1883, also the birth year of Sarah's beloved cousin Jenne, and continue to the 1930s, including the birth of her five children, including two sets of twins. There is one entry for 1944, the death of Sarah's husband, William Levi Salyers.
As before . . .
- Dates are not in chronological sequence. Sarah apparently wrote dates and events as they came to mind. Notice her two references to "going back."
- Parentheses are original to the handwritten chronology. Brackets enclose my own clarifications, identifications, and comments.
- Links go to previous posts that mention or feature those ancestors or events.
