Sarah Ann Marries Herman - A German

Herman was born in Rastatt, Germany 
               Sometime after Sarah Ann’s divorce from Thomas Mills in August of 1877 and before June, 1880 she marries Herman Vogel aka August Phillipp Herman Vogel.  He was born
 24 October 1844 in Rastatt, Baden, Germany.                                                   
  His parents were Joseph and Mariah Vogel.  (Research by Lily Jane)

In the Salt Lake Directory 1875-1878 - lists; Vogel, Herman, brewer, res 5th E. bet 5th & 6th S.  A familiar address?  Yes, Sarah Ann's.  This evidence indicates Herman is a boarder.  How many boarders Sarah Ann has in this time frame is not known, Yet.  It is in the Utah 1880 Census that states Herman and Sarah Ann are married.  Herman is in the Census in two locations.  On the Census record taken on 22 June - Location: Sugar House, Salt Lake, Utah - 
Occupation: Works at Wagners Brewery - Marital Status: Married.
The other Utah Census taken earlier on 2 June 1880 - 
Location: Ninth Ward (5th E. bet 5th and 6th S.)
Occupation: Brewer at Brewery - Marital Status: Married. Listed on this Census is Sarah Ann and her son Fred, age eight.  
No marriage record has been found, Yet!
How I want to find the exact marriage date.
Herman is ten years younger than Sarah Ann.  OOOh, to know the whole story!
I did some checking on breweries in Salt Lake in the eighteen hundreds. I was surprised to fine an Internet site 'A History of Beer in Utah'  and I quote "Very few people realize that Utah was once home to some of [the] biggest and best breweries in the Western United States."  Miners in the West were numerous and were known to burn around 4,000 calories per day, "and beer was their liquid nourishment."          

   Sometime between 1884 and 1886 Herman and Sarah Ann move to Logan, Utah
 and Herman operates his own Brewery.
