Is there a profile for Sarah Hilliard/Downing West?  If more proof is needed as to her name, we do know that it was Sarah.  Are profiles created with just a first name?

I believe she had not been added because of the uncertainty of her name. The 2015 MFIP (pink book) on George Soule now calls her maiden name Downing with no question mark. I will update the profile and you can add her.

You can take what you know about Sarah and search for her profile. If you cannot find it, you may create a profile with Unknown as last name. Include notes and sources on what is known in the profile bio. Hope that helps!
