Sarah Catherine Hickman
Birth date confirmed by West Jordan Ward records at the time of a rebaptism on 14 March 1857. At that time, she was using the married name of "Butcher."
Her death certificate and the inscription on her gravestone show her surname as "Butcher." Note that FamilySearch shows her birth date as 23 February 1834. Her death certificate shows it as 23 February 1832, and the inscription on her gravestone gives her date of birth as 23 February 1835. Further research is needed to determine which date is correct.
