Notes
a. Note:   It is not certain that the Leander W. Davis who married Margaret Timberman was the brother of Sarah, but there is compelling evidence: Leander W. was born about the same time (about 1840); he served in the same regiment (30th Wisconsin Vol. Infantry) that Sarah's husband, William Hall, served in); he was living at Diamond Bluff, Pierce Co., Wis., when he enlisted in 1862 (he mustered out in 1865) - the same county where Sarah was living in 1862 (in fact, the pension application by his wife indicates he had enlisted from "Trimbelle, Wisconsin"; and finally, the 1920 census (Franklin Co., Kansas) showing the family of Leander W.'s daughter, Hessie, lists her father's birth place as Maine which is where Sarah was born (living with Hessie was her mother, Margaret, who was widowed -- Margaret and/or Leander has not been located in the 1880, 1900, nor in the 1910 census). In 1870 Leander W. was working as a farm laborer on the farm of Margaret's parents in Honey Creek, Vigo Co., Indiana, and they married there in 1872. Margaret applied for a widow's pension in 1916 and in it she reported that Leander left home ..., but for now it will be assumed that Leander W. Davis was the brother of Sarah (Davis) Hall.
