The line of descent for Sarah Jane Branscombe:

DB(11). Sarah Jane Branscombe

Sarah Jane Branscombe was born probably in June 1859, the daughter of Nancy A. Branscum and, presumably, David Branscombe. At least David presumed that Sarah was his child, conceived before the true nature of Nancy, including numerous adulterous relationships, was known to him. You will find more about their relationship on the David Branscomb, son of John and Olive E. Branscomb page. The only information available for Sarah is from the suit for divorce from her mother Nancy, which was filed by attorneys on behalf of David Branscum. After the divorce Sarah was living with her mother in the same house where Nancy, her sons, and Wesley and Edmond were also living, under the supervision of James Harpur/Harper. After the settlement of the estate of David Branscombe, Nancy and her children were no longer found in Johnson County. As stated above, Sarah Jane was one of the few primary heirs to receive one-eighth share of Davidís estate after expenses.
