Sarah was born in the late 1850's and as a very young teenager married a Union soldier nammed Myers who never returned from the war. Still very young Sara then eloped with Marion Jones who was strongly disliked by Sarah's father, Jacob. When they returned after a short honeymoon Jacob annuled the marriage with a shotgun. Marion married again shortly thereafter without knowing that Sarah was carring his son. Sarah lived the rest of her life with her father (which was probably what Jacob had intended) and named her baby Randolph Siler, not jones. Randolph believed he was sarah's illegitimate son but the marriage is recorded in Whitley County.
