Ironically, at the time of my post in March 2002,
I knew more about the Scaifes than anyone else in
my family. Now, it's kind of turned around... I know
quite a bit about the Hancocks and the Huies and
others who married the Scaifes, but relatively little
about Sarah... the family is very prominent and very
well documented going way back, but Sarah (b. ~1800)
seems to have run off with my ggggg gf James Hancock at
a very early age, perhaps 14, and she died in an
unknown place in Alabama at about age 26... it seems
to me that she lost favor with her family by running
off into what was relative obscurity... Although her
father was very wealthy, he only left $100 to
Sarah's children (6 of them).
Sarah is the fourth? child of of William Scaife
(1773-1841) and Margaret Terry of Chester, SC and the
grand-daughter of William Scaife of VA (1751-1805).
She had 14 siblings of whom 7 survived to adulthood..
she also had a step brother by William's second
This Scaife family is very well documented at:
Please tell me your relation to the Scaife family.
If you would like more info on Sarah's children, etc.
