a. Note:   N448 Per the 1860, 1870, 1880 U.S. Federal Census, I believe Sarah Ohr Follett’s mother was named Leah, and her father was Elias Ohr. I formerly thought Leah’s maiden name might be Marsh (because of the census transcription errors). But the research of a DNA match on shows that her maiden name was actually Leah Rohrer.
  The family was living in Mount Morris, Ogle, Illinois in 1860 and in 1970 they were in Jackson, Iowa, then Woodburn, Iowa in 1880. By 1900, Leah and Elias were living in Kansas, perhaps closer to one of their children. __________________
