- Her birthdate is based on the 1850 and 1860 Census records.
Sarah was born between 1832-1840 and I find no record of a marriage in Sevier Co. According to family legend Sarah was never married, but had 3 children. She is listed in the 1850, 1860 and 1880 Sevier Co., TN with her parents.
In 1850 Cocke Co., TN Census she is listed as age 11, b
1860 Sevier Co., TN Census she is listed as age 20, b NC

1900 Census at age 67.
This is the mother of John Ingle. I have been unable to find conclusive dates. She is still living at age 67 according to the 1900 Sevier Co., TN Census and listed as unmarried. She is living with a niece, Hannah, and her husband Cornelius Hedrick. Hannah's father was William INGLE a brother to this Sarah. There are no other Sarah's in Sevier Co., TN at this time period, therefore I conclude that this is my Sarah, especially because she is still unmarried in 1900. The family history says that she lived to see her grandchildren. She gives her age as 67 and her birthdate as 1832, with no month recorded. Her brother is living next door and he gives his birthyear as 1835, age 65.
Sarah's nieces, daughters of William, Sallie and Celia, both married TEAGUE brothers as my John INGLE married their sister. These close connections add to the evidence that this is my Sarah.
Her death date is from the Bible of William INGLE, her brother.
It was recorded by a Belle INGLE Sufferidge that she never married the HODGE that fathered her three children: Kate, Joe, and Rube and that Kate married a JUSTUS.
