  • Notes 
    • - DNA connection with direct descendant of Sarah Jane Tyrrell demonstrates her marriage to Abraham Vanalstine.

      - As per the Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Record, 1828-1910, Sarah Jane was b. of William and Sarah at Cornwall Sept. 7, 1843, and baptized the same day, Oct. 13, 1848, as Margaret, b. Jan. 15, 1841, and Mary Anne, b. Sept. 4, 1838.

      - In 1850, Joseph Tyrrell and wife Dorothy are living in Massena with their two oldest children, Sarah, 1, and Mary, several months. Also with them is Sarah, age 7, b. 1843. I believe this is Sarah Jane, daughter of WIlliam and Sarah, who was born Sept. 7, 1843. Otherwise, Dorothy would have had to have given birth to her at age 16 in 1843 and they weren't married until 1846. And why have two daughters named Sarah? Sarsah's sister Marinda, 16, is found across the river in Cornwall working as a servant. Sisters Margaret and Mary Ann are not found with uncles either George at Cornwall, or John in Massena. So, in 1850 in the U.S. and 1851 in Canada we cannot find William, 54; wife Sarah, 46; or two of their daughters, Margaret, 9 and Mary Ann, 12, in either Canada or the U.S.

      - In 1860 at Massena, Joseph is with his natural daughter Sarah and so Sarah Jane, now 17, is gone. She is not found in Massena in the 1860 census by any last name.

      - In 1861, Sarah Jane turns back up. She's 18 and residing at Cornwall, Ontario, with her sister Martha, 31, and Martha's husband George Raymond and their two children, Alonzo, 5 and Amelia, 3.

      - 1881 Canadian census: Abreaham, 51 and Sarah, 37, are at Cornwall, Ontario with children George, 17 through Ernest, 1.

      - In 1886, according to the 1900 U.S. census (but 1888 according to Sarah in the 1910 U.S. census) the family relocated to Ellenburg Ward 2, Kittitas County, Washington where in 1900 they are: Ab Vananlatine, 70; Sarah, 58; George M., 38; James R., 30; and William D., 24.

      - 1900: Ab Vananlatine is 70 and Sarah, 58, at Ellensburg with sons, all single, George, 38; James, 30 and William, 24.

      - 1910: Sarah J. Van Alstine, 77, is widowed and residing with sons George M., 40; and James R., 41 at South Ellensburg, WA.

      - 1920: Sarah, 77, resides South Ellensburg with sons George, 57, and James, 50.

      - Sarah dies 18 Aug 1928 at South Ellensburg.
