      *"A History of Savannah and South Georgia" states that Sarah outlived her husband by many years. There is a marriage record between Sarah Rich and Wilson Butts on 16 Dec 1830 listed in Decatur County marriage book AA, page 47. I can find no 1840 or 1850 census record in Georgia with a Wilson Butts as head of household.
    Died  Yes, date unknown 
    Notes 
    • Sarah's ancestry is a mystery and has been a brick wall for some time. Though I have seen Overstreet records in Emanuel County, I have not seen any that could tie Sarah to a parent or sibling.

      There is a Decatur County marriage between Sarah Rich and Wilson Butts that took place on 16 Dec 1830 (book AA-47, which is missing from probate court). It is possible that Martin died in 1829 or 1830 and Sarah was recorded in the 1830 census. Then later that year, she married Wilson Butts. However, she was already 50-60 in 1830, so this would have been a late-in-life marriage.

      More research is needed!
