My direct line is Hezekiah Lord and wife Sarah Fish. For some reason she isn't showing up as my direct line. Is there anything that can be done?

When I use the relationship finder for your id and Hezekiah, it shows he is your 6th great grandfather.  

From Hezekiah Lord-146 profile, select the Relationship to Me in the drop down under the wikitree ID.

Sarah Lord-4541 is the daughter of Hezekiah Lord, but she has no linked mother, which is why when you try to do it from his wife Sarah, you don't get a connection.  It looks like Sarah Fish is her daughter based on the marriage dates.  When you look at Sarah Lord's profiles, her siblings are all shown as Half because they are all connected to their mother Sarah and Sarah Lord is not connected to her.
He does show up as my ancestor. It's his wife Sara Fish Lord that doesnt. I have her as my ancestor, his wife. I even tried his second wife, no relationship.
As I said above, she does not have a mother connected. That is the problem. Add her mother and then it will work.
Ok, I get it, TYSM! The daughter had no connection. Ok, learning curve!

Sarah Fish Lord has a mother, Sarah Stark Fish, Father is Samuel Fish.  Fish-180 her mom Stark-2318, Dad Stark-395 forgive me I'm new at this. If Hezekiah lines up, why not his wife. Fish-180

Now that you have her mother connected, Fish-180 is shown as connected to you.  Check the relationship now.
I got it! TYSM.
