  • Sarrett and Hamrick have different dates for Martha, as well as acouple of other children of Lous Hobson and Mary.  Hamrick Family hasan exact date of birth for Nancy in October 1841, while Paul Sarretthas a year 1844.  Paul has Martha born in 1841, while Hamrick data hasbirth year abt 1855.

    Though the dates in the censuses cause the estimated date of birth tovary somewhat, in both 1850 and 1860, Martha appears between Judy andHannah,
