This Sarah, wife of 1st, Alexander McMurtry and 2nd, James Young MAY have been a Todd, but there appears to be little evidence to prove her parentage. She is said to possibly be a sister or perhaps an older daughter of William Todd that migrated to Augusta County, Virginia, but no records have been discovered to prove either of these relationships. Additional records and research are needed before her parentage or relationship to William Todd can be established.

Caution: there are several different versions of the Todd Family ancestry that have been propagated over the years. Here is one detailed analysis that should be consulted:
