In response to the note regarding which husband came first, David Stern or William Sahlein... the 1880 census details the inhabitants of William Sahlein's household including William's stepchildren, all with the last name Stern. Therefore, I propose that Fanny was married to David Stern before she was married to William Sahlein.
