Zaroga-
THAT has been the big question all along that no one seems to know for certain. There was definitely more than one John Dansby (maybe even more than two just in the area), but which one married Sarah Sasser? Stories from old relatives and friends of relatives say that our John Dansby's wife's name was Sarah Price and she was Cherokee. If this is true, Sarah Price most likely was not her real name...could she have changed her "Americanized" name more than once? Could she have been married more than once, formerly to a Price? Formerly to a Sasser? I don't know and I, personally, haven't seen any evidence either way to solidify any of the theories into fact in my mind BUT I tend to want to believe the stories of my relatives, so MY datafiles have Sarah listed as Sarah Price, but I have some notes in her files regarding Sarah Sasser as well. I am hoping that someone, somewhere will be able to find that missing link that we need for all of this.
