    Notes 
    • she was likely Sarah MUSE b abt 1710/11-daughter of JOHN MUSE JR and ANNE SANFORD of Westmoreland Co Va . The age is correct for SARAH as she gives her age as 72 in the drawing of her Will in 1782 which makes her birth 1710. Both JOHN and ANNE were desceased before Sarah MUSE was 16 and her Brother-In-Law, ROBERT SANFORD , was her guardian until she was 16. All MUSE males have been accounted for as possible husbands for SARAH . Almost all MUSE families in Virginia lived in Westmoreland Co at this time according to TORRENCES Wills and Administrations 1632-1800. Conclusion - It seems most likely she was in fact SARAH MUSE born 1710/11,daughter of JOHN MUSE JR and wife ANNE SANFORD.
