Posted by: Mark Raulin (ID *****8624) Date: May 24, 2002 at 07:29:23
  of 18

I am looking for information on a Sarah J. USILTON. She was born about 1823. She married Samuel Walter RAWLEIGH on 7/6/1843 in Kent County, Maryland. I know that there are quite a few USILTON's in that area, but haven't been able to get more information on Sarah.

If you have any information on her, please contact me.

Thanks,
Mark
