Narrative:

     Sarah King was born on 28 Feb 1780.6
     Sarah married Adam Toot, son of David Dutt and Catherine Klingenmyer, on 6 Mar 1796 in Halifax Co., Virginia, with Rev. Thomas Dobson officiating.7,8
     On 14 Oct 1822 Sarah and Adam gave 280 acres of land in Halifax Co., which he had purchased from Granville Craddock a few months before, to their daughter Elizabeth and her husband, Dr. Davis Green Tuck.9,10 Curiously, the deed was not recorded until 8 Aug 1826, and the property, on Miller Rd., remained in Sarah's name in the tax lists until the following year. Perhaps his continuing to pay the taxes, $1.62 per year, was part of the gift?11 She was buried in Churchyard, Halifax Courthouse, Halifax Co., Virginia.4
     Sarah died on 11 Jan 1835 at age 54.6
     
Research Note, 27 Mar 2006:
Edmund seems to have married three times, with the mother of Sarah not clear. Kimberly Stanley states that Elizabeth is "thought to be" her mother.4
