Sarah Scribner is one of my ggg-grandmothers. All that is known about her is what is mentioned in the paragraph in the picture. So I have tried to determine who her family was based on census records and any other records that I could find that might pertain to them. The only Scribner family that I have been able to find that lived in or near Henry County, Ohio during the early 1800's were Elisha and Nancy Scribner. These I believe to be Sarah's parents. They came from New York first to Williams County, Ohio and then in 1816 they settled in Henry County, Ohio. Elisha died before 1830 and Nancy died before 1840. Sarah had at least three brothers (Edwin, Henry, and Jonah) and one sister (Anna Eliza or Eliza Anna). Sarah was the youngest child. Her husband-to-be, Samuel Meader, had moved in with or came to visit his older brother David who had a farm in Lucas County close to where Sarah's older sister Eliza lived with her husband Osman Gunn. This is how I imagine Sarah and Samuel first meeting. When they married they bought or were given or maybe rented a farm next to her brother Edwin's farm in Henry County. Here they stayed until 1854 when they left for Iowa. I have been unable to find a Mose Pike, Ohio (where she was supposedly born) but in both Williams and Henry County there were towns known as Napoleon Pike. Since writing this I have been in touch with another Scribner researcher who pointed out that a more likely candidate for Sarah's father would be Elisha and Nancy's oldest son Henry. This makes more sense since at Sarah's birth Elisha and Nancy would have been the age of grandparents and not parents.
