SARAH ELIZABETH ECKEL was born 28 Feb 1887 in Indiana. One of four children, Sarah’s mother died at childbirth when youngest sister Lola was born. Father died just one year later leaving four orphans. Eldest child Maude was 15 and was left on her own. A Central Illinois couple raised baby sister Lola. Brother Otis was sent to a Springfield, IL family & Sarah was sent to a family whose father was an officer in the Volunteers of America. In 1905 she married Herbert G. Sykes, had a son John Herbert Sykes on 04 Apr 1906 and Rev. Sykes died on 17 Jun 1908. Sarah married Frederick Reginald Brewer (born 15 Aug 1885 in Birmingham, Eng) in July 1909. Fred Brewer adopted John Herbert Sykes and this Sykes line ended. Any clues appreciated!
