I would like to find out more about Sarah CHANTRY b 04 Jan 1826 in Mansfield, NTT, ENG, Married John RAWSON 08 Apr 1844 in Mansfield Woodhouse, NTT, ENG . I think she had at least two sons Harry b.1867 and George b. abt 1845? but it is unclear because some of the Parish registers here are damaged for that time period.
Sarah is my 1st cousin 4 times removed as I am directly descended from one of her uncles. I would love to know the story of how she came to cross the Atlantic. The Chantrys are quite rare (regardless of how the name is spelt) and I can only find Sarah and a cousin of hers, Sarah Holmes from NTT, ENG, along with David & Elizabeth (Reid) of LIN, ENG, who emigrated to the USA. And at the moment there appears to be no clear link between the families in the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire...but I am slowly working on it.
In the meantime it would be good to make some links with Sarah's descendents.
