Searching for the Dyson (UPDATE: Gibbons?) family of St. George, Utah...

+2 votes
...Specifically the Dyson family who took in a young Navajo Paiute girl in the 1850's.  She is known as Sarah Maraboots Dyson.  Sarah was given by her father to my great great great grandfather Ira Hatch who placed her with a Dyson family in St. George, Utah until their marriage in 1859.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

UPDATE:  I have just found a document which indicates she was placed with a Gibbons family...

Thanks Phylliss.  Could you share with me the source for her date of birth?  I have one document with 1842 and another with 1846.
I have been looking at a headstone in [my heritage genealogy] which has her birth as1843 and death 1873 in Kirtland cemetry, Kirtland , San Juan, New Mexico

That is the best I can do.

Another family tree  says she had 5 children.

Ira  stearns Hatch 1862-1890

Amanda maiah mandy tietjen[born]Hatch  1867-1894

Sarah rhoana Hatch  1872-1873

Joseph wilford Hatch  1870-1945.

James henrie Hatch 1864-1942


Hope this is of some help

You have a picture of her headstone?  I know her husband Ira was buried there, but all records we have show Utah or Arizona as her burial place.  Oh, and again, thanks.
