The only Sarah Weaver I seen was born 1757 Delaware age 93 in the 1851 census living with a John Maxwell and family in Clay Illinois ...Most trees on ancestry has her dead in 1850 in Coles don't know if this is the right one

I didn't find her in the 1850 census.  (Please note that it's 1850, rather than 1851.)  You can try searching it at www.familysearch.org.

There are some look-up volunteers listed here, some of which have access to local cemetery records.  http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~iljasper/lookups.htm

Thanks Sandra I think its now the wrong Sarah Maxwell, the one inquestion was single before she immigrated to USA. The Isaac Weaver's wife Sarah already was married before 1775 when the Sarah I am looking for immigrated to NYC.

My thoughts as well. A lot of the information doesn't fit very well, the birth date varied 1752 - 1758 as I said on the other thread, which didn't fit with children starting 1768.  You give a birth date of 1746 here.

I find this often some researchers just linking names without the facts. I put a lot of this down to ancestry.com where there is a false tree saying the Sarah Maxwell that married Issac was the daughter of the Robert & Martha I am looking for. The Sarah Maxwell and sisters and parents that immigrated in 1775 seem to vanish from records once they land in America. I find it hard to research American records from here in Australia. Ancestry.com as such have to many incorrect trees because many people don't check the names on the hints properly to make sure their the right parents.
