==Sarah Ablacur Sickler== Sarah Ablacur Sickler was born about 1865/6 in Illinois, the daughter of Robert Sickler by his wife Mary. She married, as his first wife, on 23 Feb 1891 in Menard County, Illinois to Charles Oliver Whitney (b 1865), a native of that place. They had at least or exactly nine children: Minnie Laura Whitney 1891/2, George Allen Whitney 1893/4, Charles Scott Whitney 1895/6, Jazer Harry Whitney (infant), Mary Ann Whitney 1897/8, John William Whitney 1900/1, Eva Lorene Whitney 1903/4, James Douglas Whitney 1906/7 and Robert Francis Whitney 1908/9. In 1910, where the family was enumerated living in Long Creek, Macon County, Illinois, Sarah states that she is the mother of 9 children, 8 of whom are still living. Sarah died later that same year. Charles then married secondly, her sister Minerva Sickler. By 1920 the family had moved to Alabama Township, in Nevada County, Arkansas. They may have later moved to Hope, Arkansas as Charles died there on 7 Feb 1937. Scott Sickler, a site visitor, informs me that the parents of Sarah and Minerva were Robert F Sickler and his wife Mary J Sheppard, and directs me to the 1870 and 1880 census of Tazewell County, Illinois for confirmation. He further states that Mary (Sheppard) Sickler died Jan 1909 in Edmond, Oklahoma. Charles' second wife Minerva died in 1940. Charles and both of his wifes are buried in the Spangler Cemetery in Macon County, Illinois. ===Primary documents for 15=== *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&rank=0&gsfn=Sarah&gsln=Sickler&sx=y&f5=&f4=&f7=&f42=&f8=&f15=&f27=&f21=Illinois&rg_81004011__date=&rs_81004011__date=0&_8000C002=&f28=&_80008002=&f16=&_80018002=&f6=&f11=&f10=&f22=&f43=&gskw=&prox=1&db=1880usfedcen&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&pcat=35&fh=5&recid=36811380&recoff=1+2+17+18 1880 Census of Washington, Tazewell County, Illinois] showing : "Mary Sickler 40, widow, weaves carpet, IL/OH/IN ; Sarah 14 IL/NJ/IL; Minerva 12 IL; Jazer 9 IL" *[http://www.ilsos.gov/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html Illinois Statewide Marriage Index] showing : "Charles O Whitney to Sarah A R Sickler 23 Feb 1891 Menard County, Illinois" *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&db=1910USCenIndex%2c&rank=0&gsfn=Eva&gsln=Whitney&sx=&gs1co=1%2cAll+Countries&gs1pl=1%2c+&year=&yearend=&sbo=0&sbor=&ufr=0&wp=4%3b_80000002%3b_80000003&srchb=r&prox=1&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&o_iid=21416&o_lid=21416&pcat=35&fh=7&recid=16569355&recoff=1+2 1910 Census of Long Creek, Macon County, Illinois] showing : "C O Whitney 44, married for 18 years, IL/KY/IL, Grocery; Sarah 44, married for 18 years, mother of 9, 8 living, IL/NJ/IL; George 16; Charles 14; Mary 11; John 9; Eva 6; James 3; Robert 1; Douglas Rock 26 half-brother, IL/IL/IL, Laborer, Ditching" *[http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&db=1920usfedcen%2c&rank=0&gsfn=Eva&gsln=Whitney&sx=&gs1co=1%2cAll+Countries&gs1pl=1%2c+&year=&yearend=&sbo=0&sbor=&ufr=0&wp=4%3b_80000002%3b_80000003&srchb=r&prox=1&ti=0&ti.si=0&gss=angs-d&o_iid=21416&o_lid=21416&pcat=35&fh=0&recid=3774568&recoff=1+2 1920 Census of Alabama Township, Nevada County, Arkansas] showing : "Charles O Whitney 54 IL/KY/IL; Minerva 51 IL/NJ/IL; Hixey 21, daughter, IL; John 19, son, IL; Eva 16, daughter, IL; James 13 son, IL" *[http://genealogytrails.com/ill/macon/maconco_cem_spangler_uvwxyz.html "Sarah Whitney"] in the Spangler Cemetery records, Macon County, Illinois showing : "Sarah Whitney, born 1865, died 1910" ===Secondary sources for 15=== *[http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/person.aspx?pid=72643429 "Sarah Ablacur Sickler"] on OneWorldTree
