Baby Sarah, named after her mother, grandmother and paternal aunt, lived only a couple of months. Her nephew Martin McGowan Jr. wrote in an online biography what little was known about the child: "It is not recorded where she was buried. Since the family lived in Kerkhoven in Lutheran territory, it is assumed Sarah, the daughter, was buried in a common grave in a Catholic cemetery in Murdock or DeGraff. No marker or record was ever found."[1]
