  • Notes 
    • She appears on the 1900 US Census, age 12, living in the home of her aunt Sarah "Sadie" Brewington Webster and her husband. Sadie's sister Jennie Brewington is listed as a boarder. This is understandable as Sarah Jane's mother,  Elisabeth Ellen Brewington had died 2 years previously in childbirth.
