CT) and I believe Sarah's father was Matthew St. Clair (the only St. Clair in the CT census). I don't know Sarah's mother's name.

Richard L. Hoover

I am searching for any information on the second marriage of James HART (bca 1784/DE). His first wife, Mary, was dead by 1860. My GGGgrandmother, Susannah Moore Lowry, appears to have remarried after the death of her husband. I am speculating as to the first name of Susannah Moore Lowry's 2nd husband. A search of possible candidates in both Adams Co and Highland Co in 1860 census (after which Susannah's surname changes from Lowry to Hart) leads to only one possible man of a correct age: James Hart. The will of James Hart, listing Susannah as widow in 1863, makes me think there is strong evidence that this indeed was Susannah's second husband. Can anyone help me with information on this marriage, which took place between 15-16 Jun 1860 and James Hart's death, 13 Jan 1863.
