Susan Wheeler's Will

Sarah Jones, who married James White in 1852 in Jefferson County, Ohio, was probably the daughter of William Jones (born ca 1800 in Pennsylvania) and Susan Styer (Stier/Steer, born ca 1800 in Maryland).  Sarah (Jones) White's Pennsylvania death record listed her parents as William Jones and Susan Jones.  There was a marriage record in Jefferson County, Ohio, for a William Jones and a Susan Styres in an appropriate time frame (8 January 1824).

In 1850 there was a Sarah Jones living in a household in Jefferson County with a Susan Wheeler, of the same age and birthplace as Sarah's mother.  Could Susan Wheeler be the mother of Sarah (Jones) White? Possibly.
