Descendants of Philip & Sarah Uridge née Barton

Today I received an e-mail from Ellen Kennedy who lives in Michigan USA. Ellen is a descendant of Philip & Sarah Uridge née Barton, who lived in the Isle of Grain, Kent.

Ellen advised that Philip & Sarah emigrated to Michigan, and lived in Sanilac County, Michigan. Philip died on 30 March 1880 at Delaware Township of pneumonia. Their daughter Sarah (not previously listed in the database) was baptized 12 April 1835 in St. James, Isle of Grain and married James Taylor on 25 Dec 1852 in Wayne County MI. Ellen is a descendant of James & Sarah Taylor née Uridge.

Ellen provided valuable information on this family, in particular from the 1860 & 1870 US Censuses, including the families of William & Mary Uridge who also lived in Delaware Township, Sanilac County, and Philip & Ann Uridge, who lived in Detroit, Wayne County.

This information has been included in the database, and will subsequently updated in the next website update. Most sincere thanks to Ellen for this extensive information.
