Sarah Ellen Short
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 13:14 GMT (UK) »
Sarah was born in 1872 and died  7.4.1952 in East Coker Somerset. He parents were George and Christiana Foot. I wonder if records have her exact date and place of birth? Many thanks Mark

I'm having trouble finding her in any census. The nearest I can find is a Sarah Ellen Short born 1872  Hermitage, Dorchester, Dorset with father George Short and mother Christiana Foot. She was baptised 28 Jan 1872. Is this just a coincidence?

Search on 1939 register gives a date of birth as 18th December 1871 for a Sarah E Foot living at East Coker, which could fit in with 1872 baptism already found.
