Biography

Birth

Sarah was born about 1870.

Name

Her Hocąk name is given as HoMeNukPeCooKah, which is for Homįnągᵋpįk’ųga, from homįną́k, "seat"; pįk’ų, "to make good, to improve, to fix"; and -ga, a definite article suffix used in personal names. The name means, "Prepares Well a Seat".

Children

Sarah had the following children with John A. Brown (1905, 1910, 1934, 1940 censuses):

Steve (?) (b. 1893)
Ethel (b. 1895)
Pet (b. 1896)
James (b. 1898)
Clara (b. 1899)
Effie (b.1902)
Estella (b. 1904)
John Alonzo (b. 1906)
Jane A. (b. 1909)
Josephine (b. 206 December 1911)
Daniel (b. 6 June 1914)

Pet is not found in any census after 1905, and Ethel is not recorded in the 1905 census, so it may be, even though their Hocąk names differ, that they are the same person. In 1940, John A. and Sarah Brown are living with or next to Steve Brown. James Brown has the birth order name of Henaga, "Second Son", which means there is a missing First Son (Kųnųga). Given Steve's birthdate, it is likely that he is this son.

Death

Both John A. Brown and Sarah Brown are shown in the 1940 census, and therefore must have died some time after this date.
