Ira Sargent's Half-Sister Roxie/Charlotte
[This post is short as I'm at the Allen County Public Library]
This is the death certificate (I think) for the half-sister of Ira Sargent (abt. 1843-1916), with whom readers are painfully familiar.
How I found it is a long story, but the name of the father, the year of birth, and place of birth are consistent with Roxie Landon's 1856 and 1860 census records.
We'll have a longer update later, but I think this leaves me one less sibling of Ira to locate.
