Name: Sarah Faunce
Birth: ca 1831 in IL 1
Census: 3 Sep 1850 in Woodbury Pct, Cumberland Co, IL (age 19, b. in IL) 2
Census: 21 Jun 1860 in Mattoon Twp, Coles Co, IL (age 27, b. in IL) 3

Sarah's maiden name is given on the death certificate of her son James Harvey Larkins. It is speculation that she was the daughter of Noah M. and Lydia R. (Barton) Faunce. However, in the household of Noah on the 1840 census in Coles Co, IL there are no females other than his wife, age 40-50. So, Sarah may have not been Noah's daughter and may have been a daughter of Noah's brother and his wife, Thomas W. and Hannah A. (Dixon) Faunce.
Sarah was married to a Frederick before marrying Reuben Larkins and it is assumed that her first husband was the Telemachus Frederick who is on the 1850 census in Cumberland Co, IL with wife Sarah.
