Sarah Ann (Beswick) McIntosh (52 Ancestors #17)

02 May

Sarah Ann (Beswick) McIntosh was my 3x Great Grandmother on my mother’s side.  She was born in approximately 1846 in Yantic, Connecticut (which is what most of the documentation says, however the 1860 Census says she was born in England) to John and Jane (Dewist) Beswick. From the records I have found she was one of eight children. Her brother’s and sisters being Dolly (born in England), John (born in England), Betsey, Mary, James, Martha, and Adaline.

On October 25, 1866 Sarah married Robert Henry McIntosh a stone Mason.  Robert was a prominent business man who had a one time worked for her father John. Together they had three children.  Jeanette (Nettie), Robert, and Lillian (May).

Robert died in 1889, but Sarah lived most of her life at there home at 360 Spring St. Newport, Rhode Island. At some point her son Robert took over the home and she lived there with him and his family. Before her death in 1929 she lived with her Daughter Lillian and her family.

While this is about all I have on Sarah, she fascinates me. This picture is the only one I have of her and and she looks like a tiny stick on dynamite.  I bet she was an interesting woman.
