You were interested in information about Sarah Poage Gordon(#10) of Augusta County, GA. Sarah was the first born of Robert Poage(#1), the immigrant from Ireland. Born of Elisabeth Preston in 1723. She married Thomas Gordon and they had nine children together. Jean(#101), John(#102), Gracy Ann(#103), George(#104), Martha(#105), Sarah(#106), Margaret(#107), Mary (#108),and Thomas Jr(#109).
I have a bit more information and can be reached at
I have a worn copy of "The Descendants of Robert and John Poage" by Bishop and Woodworth (Complete Edition). It was my grandmother's (Ruth Susan Ellsworth Tinney Edgar). Descentdant #16334233. Following their numbering method I would be descendant
Their numerical system places each digit as a generation, and the number of that digit is the order of birth. Tracing my number back to Robert Poage (#1)the first born, and I am on the end (#3) being third born of my family.
I hope this helps.
