Sarah Katherine Weatherwax pg421 of the Weatherwax Genealogy

The following corrections should be noted based on more research.
Her Husband Samuel T. Simmons moved the family to Webster co Iowa in 1860. There Samuel enlisted in D co. 16th Iowa inf. Regiment (abt 1862). He mustered out of service on or about 22 Feb 1864.
When his wife Sarah K. Weatherwax applied for her widows pension she uses this date as his mustered out date. She applied for the Widows pension on  21 Mar 1867, leading me to believe he was granted an Invalid pension on 22 Feb 1864, and died before the 21 Mar 1867 date of application. Clearly he was receiving $8.00 monthly as a pension until her application in 1867. In the application she clearly lists each child with dob as follows:
1. Eva A. Simmons b:Feb 26,1851
2.Augusta C. Simmons b: Apr 21,1853
3. George L. Simmons b: Jan 18,1855
4. Jesse Ionia Simmons b: Jul 19,1857
5. Clara A. Simmons b: Jul 20,1859 All above born in Branch co MI
6. John T. Simmons b: Jul 201861 Webster co IA
Sarh remained in Webster co IA in USC  1870 still in Sumner,Webster,IA. By USC 1900 she has returned to Branch co MI where she appears with her father in Quincy,Branch co MI ( Sarah Simon) w/ John T. Weatherwax. In USC 1910 she appears for the last time in quincy,MI. I was not able to locate her in USC1880 anywhere. She is buried in Quincy,Branch,MI in Lakeview Cemetery.
For those who are interested I do have marriages for most of her children etc. email me if you want or need that info. It will be reflected in my planned 10 year update to the Weatherwax Genealogy due in 2020 or thereabouts if I am still going strong.
