comparing the two pictures. Again, I am guessing the year to be the late 1870’s which would put her age about forty five years or forty eight depending on what year of her birth; some records say 19 Dec 1829 or 19 Dec 1831. I was going with year of birth as 1831 until I found a record in MY possession that Sarah Ann herself put DOB at 1829! How did I miss that! It just goes to show that a person needs to examine record information time and time again! That would put her almost four years older than my beloved GGGrandfather Charles and fifteen years older than her husband Herman Vogel. But, I digress!
I found this to be interesting in comparing her hands and the ring on her left ring finger which I think is the same ring. The bottom picture she has added rings.
Oh my! Where are the rings today? What a treasure to have!
