Potential name variationsEdit
- Sarah Oldrin
- Sarah Oldren
- Sarah Olderen
- Sarah Olderon
She was 100% British as best as can be determined.
The 1850 United States Census for Manhattan lists Sarah's age as 34 years, which would mean she was born around 1816. She was born in the area of Glen Cove, New York and Oyster Bay, New York. Vital records registration started in New York State outside of New York City in 1881 so the only birth record would be her baptism at a church.
- Mary Oldrin (1813-1850) who married Albert Salter (1811-1882)
- Elizabeth Oldrin (1818-1901) who married Augustus Lancaster Bogart (1817-1901) on March 14, 1838. She died on February 18, 1901 in Bronx, New York.
- Ann Seabury Oldrin (1818-1894) who married Albert Salter (1811-1882) on July 29, 1851. She died on April 26, 1894 and was buried
Sarah married Abraham Kershaw (1815-?) around 1835. Our Abraham may be the same person as Abraham Cashow (1814-?) who died on his way to California presumably in 1850-1851 during the California Gold Rush. The Abraham married to Sarah had their last child in 1849, who was Peter Kershaw (1849-?) and makes his last appearance in the 1850 United States Census living in New York. This is good evidence that the two are the same person. Vital records registration started in New York State outside of New York City in 1881 so the only marriage record would be from the church.
Abraham and Sarah had the following children:
- Mary E. Kershaw (1837-?). She may be the same Mary Kershaw that married Moses Field (1830-?).
- Isaac Kershaw (1840-?) who may be the same person as Isaac Kershaw (1842-1894).
- Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931) who married Charles Frederick Lindauer I (1835-1921)
- Sarah Kershaw (1843-1922) who married Matthew Williamson (1824-1884) and after his death married William W. Young (1817-?).
- Amy Kershaw (1847-aft1872).
- Peter Kershaw (1849-?).
- Augustus Kershaw (1851-aft1870)
Abraham and Sarah most likely resided in Oyster Bay, New York and should appear there in the 1840 United States Census and should be living with their oldest daughter Mary E. Kershaw (1837-?). Abraham and Sarah moved from there to Manhattan by 1850. After Abraham's death, around 1851, Sarah moved to Somerville, New Jersey most likely to be near the other related Kershaws.
She died on November 22, 1894 in Bridgewater, New Jersey. She was listed as 79 years, 3 months and 7 days. She died of "organic disease of the heart". She was buried in Castner - Compton Cemetery, Martinsville, New Jersey.
Find her in the 1860 and 1870 and 1880 census. She should be in Somerville, New Jersey in 1870. Look for a tombstone and look in the microfilm for a funeral notice.
