Cemetery Sunday - Sarah Jane Bird Johnson - A Mysterious Lady

 
 
 
 
Monument to Sarah Jane Bird Johnson, late of Stokenchurch, Oxon, died at Burchett's Green Octb 4th 1875 aged 55.
 
Every so often I come across a gravestone where the person memorialised is completely untraceable.
 
I have been unable to find out anything about Sarah Jane.  I cannot even find her death index for her, no Sarah Johnsons registered as passing away anywhere near Burchett's Green in 1875 or indeed 1876.  I have even searched under the surname Bird, but at the moment she eludes me.

  1. Any luck with the 1871 census?

    1. None. There are plenty of Sarah Johnsons from Oxon, but it's narrowing down which one she is.

  2. Always makes me curious when I can't find anything --- at least you were able to still read the markings on the stone, which is good.
