CHILDREN

Sarah Bigler
Born 30 Apr 1780 Somerset, Pennsylvania
Married John Righter 17 Apr 1795 Harrison County, West Virginia
Note: John's surname was extracted as Roghter in one of the records.  
Children:  Jacob, Marian, John, Elizabeth, Abraham, Peter
2) Cyrus Ross 18 Oct 1822 Harrison County, West Virginia
Note:  Cyrus died 8 Mar 1872 in Booths Creek, Harrison, West Virginia and was listed as married at time of death.
Died 7 Jul 1880 Harrison county, West Virginia
Note:  She was a few months over a hundred years old - there could be some information on that in their local news if they had any.
Buried:  Righter Cemetery, Saltwell, Harrison, West Virginia
Note:  The burial place (listed on findagrave) is a maybe in my mind.  She was married to John Righter for about 27 years, but she was married to Cyrus for nearly 50 - why would the Righters allow her to be buried in their cemetery?  Maybe she simply outlived everyone that knew or cared?
