Wednesday's Child: Sara Elizabeth and Louise Jane Binkley
The first two children of my 3rd-great-grandparents Davidson Binkley and Angeline Mayo died young. Their firstborn, Sara Elizabeth, was born on 28 September 1853 and died on 11 October 1853. Their next child, Louise Jane, lived just over a year; she was born on 15 November 1854 and died on 18 November 1855. The information about these children came from a family group sheet compiled by P. C. Lampley in 1983. Most of the information on the family group sheet came from the family Bible of Laura Belle (Tarkington) Leech, the granddaughter of Davidson and Angeline (Mayo) Binkley. Although no places of birth were given for any of the children on this family group sheet, the Binkley family lived in Tennessee until sometime between 1856 and 1858.
